I know what yer getting at Moline, I sure would like to have one of those also but im lucky I had a good friend to sell me this one.
I haven't researched the cross motor Minnies much, looked at a few, there is one here right handy on loan at the museum that is the same year as my 17-28. All of these old tractors have their good and bad points, but the fact that there are many of these Cases still in exhistance has to show that they were just darn good tractors. Some of the wear on them looks like just plain neglect, some due to them loosing their shine over the years I suppose, especially when the neighbors all had their new inline models, those C and L Cases are some good lookin tractors.

I always felt that those Case cross motors were rugged and reliable, The issues I see with the one here is that it's as clumsy as all get out. Takes a monumental effort to steer ,and isn't bashful at the fuel pump! It would take one tough a&&'d farmer to wear one out!

On another thread the subject of cork float replacement was discussed. I took advise and bought a 'plug', made a guess on the float size and cut it out with two hole saws. I had to cut to width on the band saw, then filled the center hole with 1/4"X 1 1/4" flat washers for a pilot hole, then cut the rough size out with two hole saws, larger first then smaller for the ID. Looks like in the bargain I was left with a slug that should work for a McCormick- Deering ensign carburetor float. Plus plenty of material left for other projects.
I forgot to add, when working with this material it makes fine dust and smells really bad, so wear breathing protection.

Mentioned in another thread they call this "model T float slug". You can google that and find it for 28 dollars or so online.

T-6201-B
Model T Float Slug
Modern material that is resistant to the ethanols in today's fuels. We have had a lot of requests from customers with other applications wanting this material for making their own floats. Hole in the middle is 1.250", diameter is 3.850", 3" high.
