Mama said there'd be days like this but I think she lied about the part of it being short lived. Been working on a 7110 that had 2 hydraulic steel lines leaking under the cab floor out of reach of the access floor in cab. The rubber lines that screwed to the metal had some kinda reaction over time evidently and let loose at fittings. What a ordeal to fix. Finally got it back in the field this morning and get a call that I need to come look at grandaddy's old Farmall 100. I ask what's wrong and said it ain't good, just come on. Get there and the steering gearbox is completely sheared in half leaving the front-end broke loose from the rest of the tractor. Uggghhh. Bad part is it's 10 miles away from the shop. I want somehow to get it loaded up and home in the shop to fix it. Anyone have any ideas how to load such as this and not create further damage ???? This'll probably be another weeks worth of work that I could really do without being nothing has been apart on the fronted in the last 30 yrs for sure.

Maybe back it up on a trailer, the front wheels may not try to dig in. Stan

Friend at work was pulling a trailer with a Farmall 100 on it.
The ball hitch on the truck broke and the trailer and tractor went down a bank off the road.
He called me and said he needed help.
The trailer tongue hit the dirt and the tractor flipped off the trailer and broke about like that.
Got the trailer pulled out and hooked back with a new ball hitch.
Then I hooked the tractor to my 3/4 ton work truck and pulled the tractor up on the trailer backwards.
It was a tilt bed trailer.
No more damage done and got it to the Clemson farm shop and got it repaired.

Cut a 4x4 to length and strap it to either side. That will at least get it on the trailer.

Any 120hp or larger farm tractor with a loader weighted fairly well will pick that whole thing up and set it on a trailer.
Bolt an angle iron as a spreader between the chains you sling under the front of the engine so they do not put pressure on the hood. If you do not have a loader big enough, when you say you went to the field you must be out in farm country. Surely you have a neighbor with a large loader tractor that will help you out.

Here is the CNHI parts diagram in the 1st link and an alternate diagram that gives the part numbers of the main castings. Super A and regular A except for very early models should be the same.

I once winched a Chevy Suburban up the ramps onto a flat bed trailer using two come-alongs. I wonder if you could do something similar. You might hook one come-along to each of the spindles on the front wheels, and steer the tractor up onto the trailer by balancing the amount of pull on each of the come-alongs.

Just an idea.

It'll run and move fine, it's just that the only thing keeping the front axle retained under the tractor is the steering shaft and 1 U bolt hanger on the other side. It effectively broke the front bolster into where any pulling on axle spindles will rip the rest of the front-end out from under it.

Can you tow strap and come-along the two parts together to get it on the trailer? Amazing work has even been done with a few wraps of baling wire and a vise grip or two. steve

Good idea on the ratchet strap. I was so disgusted yesterday after seeing it I didn't really dwell on how to proceed with getting it loaded up to transport.
