Well, thought I'd mention, after havin' opportunity to look at the Case 830 closer, I now realize I way overpaid for it. But at least it won't go to scrap, a deal is a deal.
Not worried about people robbin parts off of it--everything is rusted together, lol. I did look inside the box, where the PO said it was gear lube. He pulled the seat and lid out of curiosity. Solid ice, he's older and vision not too great, I guess. Waitin for a thaw to move it. What I could see of the gears inside looked awful pretty, though. That gives me some hope.

Anybody know where a large vat of penetratin oil is located, big enough to dip an 830 in for a few days/weeks/months/years? LOL.

I'll play with it when I get it home, when we get a thaw.
My neighbor that helps me, he keeps givin me a hard time.

I told him, well, maybe this is my biggest blunder yet.

Got to get a handle on bein' impulsive, lol.

Anybody got any re-assuring words, or good jokes, about the deal I made and spent?

This just might teach me, but then there's the 49 Chevy 2-ton boom truck I bought off him. Neighbor and I spent a few hours jackin it up out of the 30 year old frozen ground its been settin in. Gonna have to cut more of the tree in front 'for we can get the front wheels up to ground level.

Maybe that one will teach me. I think I'm done buyin' for awhile, a long while, lol.

Thanks for the reassurances.

I was into Jeep CJ's pretty heavy for a long time.

Had twelve at one point, lol.

I told my wife my WD (I took on trade towards my AC 190)

was gettin lonely.

Picked up the AC C,

and that's when I saw the Case 830 from afar.

He was going to scrap it, I decided not to let that happen.

So, I'm at three tractors...that's a good number, for now.

I think the wife's a little happier that its not twelve jeeps, lol.

Thanks again, I'll "drive on"

I don't know the details. You may, indeed, have paid a little too much, but truly in this economy what's a couple hundred bucks one way or the other. I'm as thrifty as they come, but when it costs $100+ to fill your pickup with gas, paying a little too much on a tractor you like isn't such a big deal.

By the time any of us get our tractors to the point we want them, the initial purchase price usually looks pretty small. In fact, if you got it for free you would likely have more into it than it's worth when you're done.

Don't second guess yourself, but I agree with your thinking. You've got enough projects. It's much easier to collect projects than it is to "restore" them.

I appreciate the tip, flushin it with diesel sounds like a good idea.

Hope we get a mid-winter thaw and we can move it, but ain't bettin' on that one.
Besides, a mid-winter thaw would make the insects/grubs/larva grow bigger and badder for the summer. Don't want that, lol.

If it doesn't go for the better, my wife is already ok with it bein' a lawn ornament. Maybe just shoot it clean with laquer thinner, then clearcoat it to "freeze" it in time, lol.

Don't be too quick to judge your over payment. When it thaws out and you get it home it might be better than it appears standing outside in subfreezing weather.

There is always hope. If I remember you didn't pay gobs and gobs of money. I hope it turns out better than you think. The 830 was good tractor. Get the trasmission/differentail drained as quickly as possible and fill it with diesel to prevent residual rusting while it sits. The diesel will flush the gears and case as well. The drained out stuff can always be used to aid burning brush, at least that is what I use mine for and diesel is about the least expensive flush to use on the first go round.

Oh, well, that probably lessens the chances of someone stealing it!
