What's the difference between a super c and a 230. I can't seem to find a spec sheet on a 230 anywhere to compare things such as engine size, etc.?

Erkel13: The super C and 230 were both C123 engines, But the Super C has a step head piston and the 230 has a flat top piston A 240 farmall also has a c123 engine around 25-27 hp The old C had a C113 engine. I own a 240 farmall its a stout little horse basic the same as a 230 only you set foward on it like a Ford and the sheet metal looks much like a 460 Farmall . Hope this Helps, Have a Wonderfull Sunday!Dann

Erkel3: A year ago, Santa dropped a copy of The International Harvester Tractor Data Book (1997. Guy Fay, Motorbooks. $10.95) in my sock. Worth it's weight in PB Blaster! Looks like the 230s were stroked a little longer, turned a few more rpms, had a bit higher compression ratio, came off the line a little heavier, and were geared a little faster. Maybe 10% or so on all counts. Hope this helps. RedTed/MO.

You had better read that book again! The 230 and Super C have the same stroke.

RickB: Thanks for the follow-up, and the correction; at my age and with my bifocals, I don't always get it right. You are, of course, correct: both the Super C and the 230 stroked the same,... with the 230 apparently bored out a just a little bigger. Happy New Year. RedTed/MO.

The 230 also had a more advanced fast hitch than the 200/SC, it had a form of depth control, the touch control rockshaft arms were replaced by hydraulic couplers for cylinders on the one I had and the grille is different than the SC but similar to the 200. In other words it is a more modern version of the 200/SC, plus other differences mentioned by the other guys.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
