The 40 may still have new life :D I just found a tranny case at a local (70 miles) tractor junk yard for less than $400.00 for the 420. It looks like I won't be junking the 40 for parts.

Well the tractor case will not work! :cry: So I guess I will be looking for a 420 transmission case or..... Another dilemma. I have a 40 that had the under carraige taken apart and that's how I bought it. It sat for many years outside like that. Since they bought all new parts I "assumed" the drive ...

It would seem to me that a "free" crawler, in any condition, is a source of free parts. I paid $400.00 for a parts tractor.

If I can, I want to use the tractor rocker and hydraulic lift because I have it. I DO NOT plan on using tractor pull or lift arms. I do not have those parts and will have to find them. If in the future I see a need for the crawler rocker, I will look for one. I see a benefit in the tractor hydraulic...

I was only thinking of using the upper lift arms. All other parts would be from a crawler. My main use for the 3pt is a mower and an angle blade for the driveway. Nothing that heavy. I did not have time to check measurements or ser nos.

I have no idea what the 40 model was. When I found it, only the transmission and back was still there. I do have the ID tag as, for some reason, it was left with the parts. I have not been able to read the ser no on the 420C but I will make another try with better lighting. Do you think it would be ...

Questions, many questions...

I bought a 420C with a broken transmission case a few months ago. I have a good transmission and gears from a 40 wheel tractor complete with the three point upper lift parts. Will it fit?? It looks right but I just got the new case home last night and haven't had time to do any measuring. The price ...
