I just recently purchased a case 351. Iíll be straight forward and tell you that I know nothing about the tractor. I liked the way it looked so I bought it. The lever that changes the tractor from high, direct, and low did not work. I thought maybe it sheared a pin or something. I messed with the lever a little and ended up with it in my hands. From what I could see, I think that maybe the pin that held it in came out. This in turn allowed it to slide sideways letting the woodruff key drop out.


With this said, does it need to be in neutral to pull the cover? I think itís in direct drive right now. The cover is loose, but will only come up about ľĒ. Any suggestions on how to get the cover off would be great. My next step would be to split the tractor, which does not look like it would be very hard to do. I just donít want to tare it apart too much if I donít have to because it has a nice paint job. I guess if Iím forced to, then I will be able to see how well off the inside of the tractor is. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Also, any info that someone that has a 351 should know would be nice too!

Yes, the range shifter must be in neutral to remove the cover. Use a good long screw driver or make a tool (1/8" x 2" x 12") and angle cut one of the ends to go under the cover to move the shifting fork/rail into neutral.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
