1971 Case 222

Just picked up my first Case 222 mower. I'm getting ready to tear it to the frame and restore it. Would like to have a parts catalog on this machine, but I cant find one specific to my year model. I know many years are near identical, but I dont know if there is a year where a major change was made that would not be capable with mine. I really dont want to order a bunch of parts that look right but wont fit for one reason or another. Also want to find the paint code for this tractor. If someone can push me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

I found the parts manual. It's calling for part# C18005 for a new wiring harness. Cant find it anywhere. Is this something I'll just have to build myself?

Re: 1971 Case 222

What you are about to do has been done many times already. And many of those who have done it posted their work on the web. You need to learn to search and find. Seek knowledge rather than asking questions. At least early on. You can already find many days worth of reading on the subject.

Having said that, a forum is a great place to share your journey. Along the way, you may get stuck. Then you are in a great position to get unstuck with some help.

That's a strange concept, at least to those born before the internet. We were taught to ask questions first, and then search for information once we had a basis of knowledge with which to understand what we were searching for. It was a long walk to the library, and a lot of books to read through to find the information needed.

If you have no knowledge, it is difficult to do a search that will result in answers to specific questions because there is an encyclopedia's worth of information available on the net about any particular subject and it is difficult to sift through all of that info for the one specific gem that is required. However, on a forum, the necessary expertise is readily available and those with sufficient patience will either cheerfully answer the same question many times, or simply refrain from making any comment at all.

Re: 1971 Case 222

The path you do not seem to like is the exact path I take on everything I am curious about. I also actually try to repair things before asking someone how.

But then I am a person who graduated with honors from college and never took notes. So, I am not normal. But, my way has worked very well for me. I don't feel there is anything I can not teach myself because I seek knowledge first. It is called homework.

I have to admit that I do not like helping someone with carb problems that does not know the choke from the throttle. So, I tell them to figure that out first. Shoot me if you think it is wrong. I was taught that homework is the key to knowledge.

Re: 1971 Case 222

I think most of us on here like to share the knowledge that we have acquired through our experiences..it gives me a lot of satisfaction if I am able to help a guy get an engine running again, or tell someone a good source for parts ....or information...I thought that was the purpose of this site....the OP is a newcomer and may not have much experience...he is looking for help....and smart enough to ask for it before he takes the tractor apart and has a bigger problem

I have no preference as to how knowledge is acquired, however I do subscribe to the concept that there are no stupid questions, but the answers received may be suspect.

There are many ways of acquiring technical knowledge, including formal education in high school trades, math, and science classes, technical courses in college, practical experience, applied logic, and overheard conversations at various trade stores and shows. I've used them all because I never did learn how to do the big one, ask questions. Nowadays, we have the internet and forums for much faster knowledge acquisition, but that still requires a base knowledge to do effective searching. Base knowledge that I spent 50 years learning the hard way before the internet.

What the OP is looking for is detailed, or specific, information, not base knowledge, and that takes asking questions.
