Dad bought this new when I was one in 1966 and mom just passed it on to me in November 2013 and 2014 has taken my home and left me with this for a memory

Thanks Case friends for your comments to this sad day for me.
I will have another 530 somehow someday and plan to keep as much of this one as possible but it got hot enough to pull the oil out of the crankcase, bowed the front axle down at least an inch, rear axles are bowed also. we used this and dads 930 to dig the 32x84 hole that the house is built on and I still have pictures of dad plowing right where the tractor is setting now here in Shelbina Mo Thanks again

I do not know where you are located, but I have a partially disassembled 530 Diesel with a factory loader that I would let go of. It has brand new pistons and sleeves in it. The only thing it is missing is the grille screens. It is also a 1966 model. The tractor is located in Salem, Oregon.

My email is open. Sorry about your misfortune. I am a firefighter by trade so I see destruction like this and I feel for those affected.

Sad Situation. Sure hope you and family are on the road to rebuilding your home. That is job One. Loosing the 530 certinly was a second blow, after loosing your father,earlier. I don't know how I would handle the whole situation, but life goes go on day after day.
Best Wishes to you, and family, as you rebuild your life.
Loren.

Sorry for your loss.
Me and my dad have both had fires and lost some nice stuff.
It will take you awhile to get over it. If no one was hurt you just have to consider yourself lucky.
If you are going to try to save the tractor you need to get it inside soon. Also I would fill the cylinders with oil. After a tractor has burned the residue appears to be acidic. Oil will help neutralize it. I would cover the outside with oil also. Used motor oil will work fine.
I am not trying to discourage you but when tires have burnt off of a tractor it is a tough job to restore it.
Here are several things that you can check to determine how bad the damage is.
Will the engine turn over?
Is the radiator core burned out?
Did it burn the oil out of the trans and rear end? I have seen some burnt tractors with like new oil and others with engine/trans and rear end oil burnt completely out. If all of the oil is burned out it is probably too far gone. Did the Fire Dept put water on it?
I would not get in a hurry to haul it off for scrap. Once its gone you cant change your mind. I held on to my burned tractors for about 8 yrs before scrapping them, but none of mine were family tractors. I still have the VAS that burned because it did not get that hot.
You do have several options. You could buy another tractor just like it and put a few items from the burned one onto the new one.
One of the tractors my dad lost was the Massey Harris 55 diesel that I grew up with. It got extremely hot, so we hauled it off. I do not regret hauling it off because it was just too far gone to fix.
I have also parted out a few burned tractors.
Feel free to email me if you would like to talk about what to do. There are several more things to look for/think about if you try restore it. Unfortunately I have quite a bit of experience with burned tractors.
Nick

Wow, very sorry to see the sadness you are dealing with. I hope things get better very soon. As long as no one was hurt or lost, that is the main thing.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
