Ive farmed with my grandads CC for 35 yrs and fought overheating all the time ive had it. finally got a new radiator core and it worked pretty good, but the old CC engine quit and so I put a DC engiine in it, but I didnt flush out the water chamber in the engine, and so, now that im using in my farming and cannot easily take the time to take it apart and to a radiator shop and have it cleaned out along with the bottom tank it heats up again. Iguess the Good Lord gave me some sense and i thoughtr of putting a rag over the radiator top and leaving the cap off. I wired the rag around the rim, and went just now to harrow corn. I got 5 acres done berfroe it even began to show signs of heating up, and sense Ionlygot 10 to do, I brought her in to rest for a couplea hours while I do chores and other stuff and take her out at 6 00 to do the rest.

Great to hear of someone still farming with a CC

My father and uncle farmed about 1000 acres of wheat with a C and L in the late 1930s but really had to work to do it. Neither tractor had lights so they hung keosine lanterns on them to work at night.

I still have the C and it runs but it would not make much progress in our 3000 acres of wheat now. The main tractor has about 20 times HP of the C

Yuo, Ive farmed with it since 69 when I left home. It was my grandads. He bought it cause he and my dad farmed 400 acres together and dad saqid he was quiting if they didnt get a tractor. Dad wanted a minnie (I guess) Iknow he sure didnt want a Case, but I guess Grandpa knew they were good tractors and had been for a long time. Dad used it untilhe could get his own. The banker wouldnt let hi get a minnie, but he let him get a AC WC. He qut using the Case. Grandpa never farmed with it, but they would use it as a second tractor, or as the first if the first woulnt run. When i left home Dad gave me a 50 B JD. I didnt take long for me to realize it wouldnt keep up a charge wen I needed to use it, so i bought a really good F-20 for $50.00. When I bought myfirst farm,, I gave the B back to dad cause I didnt like it, and because he said he was getting rid of the Case, I took it. I use it now to plant and cultivate, mow, run Hammermill and buzz saw, and other odds and ends. I se a 38 F-30 to plow, disc. bale, rake, pull trees to b cut, and any heavy pulling.
