Just bought a 1951 Case VA with an Eagle Hitch in decent shape. I've spent years working with 8Ns and MH TO series, so am not familiar with these types of tractors. Just put new wires, gauges, steering wheel, alternator and some other stuff onto it, and am slowly hammering out the dents in order to repaint it.

I'm looking for parts if anyone has anything kicking around they want to sell. Needs a PTO shield and possibly a new radiator.

Also seems to be a problem with the flywheel as I can't get it to engage (was told there's a broken pin inside), and a rear wheel is leaking oil.

Can anyone here offer any tips on using these types of tractors and fixing them? I am not at all familiar with using the Eagle Hitch, so don't know if there are any tricks to it. I'm planning to plow, disc and brush hog with it, but not much else.

Turned out to be the carburetor was clogged up with gunk, so tore that down and cleaned it good - now it runs great!

Now back to repainting... Anyone recommend vinyl vs mylar decals?

Thanks for the link - that's a very helpful site.

Now seem to be having a problem with getting gas to the carburetor, not sure if the float is clogged or what. It'll fire up when I spray ether into the carb, but die shortly after, and carb is dry as a bone.

Is there gas in the glass bowl under the tank? Sometimes the garbage they sell for gas these days can plug up the tank outlet

Try peepertractor.com for parts. You might find the web site below handy. To engage the belt pulley. loosen the set screw and shove the pulley toward the tractor.

I much prefer my VAC to my brothers 8N. The live hydraulics are a big plus...just wish it had a live PTO.

Not sure what you mean by the flywheel not engaging. If you mean the starter motor pinion gets stuck or wont engage them you ring gear is bad. The ring gear on mine looks like new except for one section about 3 inches long. that is really chewed up. Engines choose to stop at the same point most of the time. You can dress the teeth up with a file.

First, the eagle hitch has no draft control. It is just an up/down lift with a quadrant that can be used to set the depth/height. Also, there is no side-sway, as the eagle hitch arms are rigidly set at 28" on center. This means that you might need to do some minor adapting to your implements to make them fit. That is, of course, unless they were originally made to work with the eagle hitch.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
