Default Case 500 on Steel New to the Nest

Went to an auction yesterday that was listed in Old Abes News. The gentleman collected Case tractors. This 500 on steel,amish steel came home with me. They said the owner was a good mechanic and a good share of the tractors ran. Was told a battery and some fuel and it would start right up.
Are owners using 1 12 volt or 2 6 volts battery? Where is the easiest place to get fuel filters for the old girl?
I plan on cutting off those floppy tires.

Will be fun to see how it looks with the rubber off.
I use one big 12 volt in place off two sixes for ease and economics. Have had no problems.
Get some pictures in bare feet!

I just checked the serial number and it's a 1954. I did alittle investigating yesterday and found the fuel shut off is stuck on the injection pump. Any suggestions what I might try to free it up. Jim

I sent you an e-mail. You need to check the governor shut off unit. If it is stuck the plunger is probably also stuck!. I hope you have not tried to turn the engine over. You may have broken the plunger and you just kissed 8 hundred to a thousand dollars good by. send me an e-mail and include your phone number if you have not turned the engine over.

Gotten caught up on a few things so Im taking some time to try and get the 500 started. Changing the oil, filter, and fuel filters. Replacing the battery cables with ones of proper size, a new battery. I checked out the injection pump and everything there seems all right.
My question today is, does anyone know where to get a solenoid for the autolite starter, the threads on the stud for the batt. cable is stripped. Going to try to take it apart and replace the copper stud, but if thats not possible need a plan b. Jim

That is not a completely new problem, I'll bet If you sit down and think about it, some of that fuel has been in that tractor tank a very long time. I like to drain the complete fuel system and use it to flush out some old transmission then send it to the recyclers then put fresh fuel in and add some 2 cycle oil if you like (not the stuff with graphite in) I think you'll find it will behave for a long time. Adding fresh fuel don't help the old stuff is still breaking down from water moisture and air.

Thought I would update you on my progress on the 500. As of my last posting I was able to replace the copper stud in the solenoid, but determined the pump was stuck so I removed it and sent it off to be checked out. Appears to have factory seals still in place, possibly never been repaired before. Some might think I'm throwing my money away but I think it will be money well spent in the long run. Hope to have it running before cold weather. Jim
