Good News on the Farmall C

I brought home a C on Sunday, and determined it was a late '51. I read that the later C's had the 123 Cu. in. motor. I dropped the pan to clean it out and replace the gasket, and lo and behold the bore is 3 1/8, instead of 3 inch.

A few weeks ago we were discussing the cost and types of 3 point hitches available. They were about $500. This one has a homemade 3 point, and I paid $500 for the whole thing. Nice rims one good tire, trike front end. I guess since the 3 point is permanent, I have a nice little tractor for the light jobs...

I knew it would happen someday, I paid $750 for this 51 C and would have gotten it cheaper but all I have to do is bid once then everybody want's in on the action. This one has no 3 point and didn't look like this when I brought it home.I felt so good about it till you posted about yours Dave. Thanks for busting my bubble

You Dog! 500 Bucks! How come I never find these deals? I will give you 250 for the hitch sight unseen.

You got a good price on the C. To my knowledge, all Cs had the 113 engine. I suppose some very late ones may have had the 123, just before they switched to the Super C. It's common for them to have been changed to 3 1/8 bore by putting over bore sleeves and pistons in them at overhaul. That may be the case with yours. Also, are you sure you have a C and not a Super. The supers have a taller radiator and a water pump (Some Cs have water pumps). On the Super there will be a space between the gas tank and the hydraulic touch control unit. On the C, the gas tank sits directly on the touch control unit. Also the bottom bar of the middle grill section is about one inch wide on the Super, the same as the top bar. On the C the bottom bar of the grill is narrow like the narrow spaces between the openings in the grill.

Yes, I'm sure it is a C. The guy told me it was a Super C, The ser.# is 77xxx on the motor, none on the frame. No water pump, and the sheet metal is 1 1/2 in shorter than my Super C... In Guy Fayes Data Book, it mentions in there that the later C's had the 123 cu. in motor....this is a 1951, and most of the casting codes correlate to 1951 also.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
