Case 444 Restoration

10 years ago I was given, by my then sister-in-law, 2 garden tractors. A mid 70's MTD and a mid 70's Case 444. I helped my brother-in-law keep these 2 tractors running until his death. They were a gift, from the family, for the help I gave him. Also because they knew how much I loved them! They both ran but needed major help.

After getting them home and the MTD tarpped and stored I tore the Case completely down. I also decided to photograph progress and to have a photo record of where the components go. You can see in the pictures just how bad shape they were in. Don't let the looks fool you they ran beautifully and were working right up to that fateful day.

I recently retired and I am going to get back to the restoration process. I will post pictures as I progress through the restoration.
