I hadn't noticed, all this time this tractor sat in my yard I never noticed that the right rear wheel is bent pretty badly at the spokes. I did see where some of the spokes had been heated at one time with a torch and I saw where some weren't straight but when I moved it to head into the shop it really became noticeable. More work, i'll have to try and straighten it before it goes in.

Russ, your 18-32 looks like quite the project. Wish I had seen it sooner but too wrapped in my own.
I wish for the time to get involved with a cross motor Case. True.
Thank you. : - )

Rain and more rain, this weekend I loaded up the Case and took it to the weld shop where I could try to straighten that wheel, look it over some more. Got the wheel better, not good enough yet but it doesn't scrape the fender when it comes around now. Managed to push it into my shop last night in the rain, did I mention it was raining, a lot?
I had a suspicion that the axle was bent, so I took the right side hub cap off and this is what I found. The cap had been cracked and welded on the outside, one half of the pin was still holding the wheel on and as I turned it around to measure the axle end it too fell out. The axle measures 3/16" bent, approximately, from the floor. I think that isn't too bad but ill probably have to make sure it isn't cracked or something? Somewhere in its past this tractor had an accident, a friend suggested maybe it was froze to the ground and forced to move? I don't know.
Pretty large axle , I think, to get bent at all. But its a pretty heavily built wheel to be bent also, I think. The cast hub isn't cracked that I can see, nor the cases.
The front mounted tie rods were something that other manufacturers tried in later years, Case could have told you that was a bad idea back in the 20's.

Case wouldn't have told them that, though, since they didn't learn. The 30 series in the '60s have the same "feature". : )

I hadn't even thought of that, I was thinking of the early letter series Farmall wide front ends. When it comes down to it, I suppose the engineers figured us
farmers would never run into anything in front.

I could use some explanation on this toolbox, I was looking it over last night and it doesn't seem like there were any holes in the fender or platform that would line up. Is this the right toolbox for an 18-32?
Also wondered if the two holes in the platform wood mean anything.

Back at it again, thanks to a very good friend I have more parts than progress, hope to change that some this winter. I could tell the belt pulley drive gear was pretty worn through the oil filler hole, finally got the pulley off and the gear cover. We may just have a better set of gears now, time will tell as there is a parts tractor now for disassembly. Also have a better wheel available for the right side. Man, did it get cold just as time freed up.
Some radiator repairs found, two more tubes to seal up.

Russ, as far as your question about the toolbox. Our 25-45 case has exact same one. Mounts on platform.
