1947 Case Tractor
|Lou Nespeca||I have a 1947 Case VAC Tractor. The power level is way down and I know the engine needs to be rebuilt. Is there any pistons available to bump the compression up a little or will the rebuild restore power to the level that I can run a Bush hog? The body and frame are in great condition and I would love to be able to work the tractor on my farm. Lastly, is the case engine a case engine or is it a more common engine (ford,gm) is there any way to swap in a newer engine?
|AJ||Had a look on this site and some others and found that there is an in frame overhaul kit available for the VAC,the kit contains pistons,sleeves and gaskets,you would remove the oil pan and cylinder head,remove the old pistons and sleeves,fit the new ones using new rod bearings,regrind the valves,put the lot back together and you would be back to standard power.
