Try Joe's for the pump. I have 1- 222 and 3- 220s. I seem to recall that there was a source for new pumps a few years ago. Check around. When working right, that is a great tractor. Good Luck, Rick

Fooled around with the Case a bit today. Carb throttle was seized. Cables seized. So got those free. Gas cap is stuck on. Was no seat on tractor so it’s been to the weather for years. More than likely water in tank. Had it turning over last night. Put cables to ground and post on starter. Switch would not turn it over. Wrong switch any way. No light/run position. Any way, if I can get fuel to it, it should start. Once I have it running, I’ll move on to see, some how, if any of the metal pieces got in to any thing in the hydraulic system , from the bad pump.

Gas tank in rough shape. Lots of dirt in it. And gas cap was stuck on badly. So I screwed up the treads a bit. Cap is now no good. Got the key switch working and does seem to be the right one. I just put some PB blaster in the switch and it now turns over with the key switch. Have spark at the plug. Put gas in spark plug hole and didn't start. So kept trying. Had compression and would suck hand in carb when I choked it. Squired gas in carb too. No start. Any way kept trying. Finally it went. Sounded good. But just squinting gas in carb sure is not the right mixture. Then it quit. Couldn’t get it going again. But I know it will run now. So I’ll move on the the gas tank troubles and look at carb after gas tank is fixed some how. Once I sure the engine is going to run good, I’ll start looking at the hydraulic lines for metal filings.

Cleaned out the gas tank as best I could. Clean out the lines. Checked the carb. Took apart and cleaned. I think it would of ran any way. It was ok. But best to check. Got it all back together and runs good. May need a little adjustment here and there. Quietest kohler I ever heard. Slow idle. Any way ran it for a bit. Checked the oil. Uuuuu. Milkie. Drain it right then. Oil was clean looking when I checked it the other day. Stirred up the water I’d say.

So my next question is. How much oil does a 1975 Case 224 take. Kohler K321. I didn’t get the letters. Any way, why I’m asking is. The dip stick is not original. Some one made up this dip stick for the engine. So how do you know it’s right. I can probably find the amount of oil it takes, but wanted to show you the dip stick.

Thanks Gary. That’s what I was kind of thinking. I’ll look today at the engine, I’m thinking its an K321AS. I think my John Deere 140 takes 1 1/2 litres. My MF 14 takes 2 litres. Ford LGT 165 takes 2 litres. Depends on the oil base pan.

So I refilled the Case 224 k321 motor. I put in 1 1/2 litres of oil. And it shows on the homemade dip stick 1/2 way between add and full. Another 1/2 litre would take it over the full mark. I’ll keep adding to the full mark and see how much more it takes.
You can also see that the dip stick tube has been modified too. Socket welded on the end. God knows what happened that they had to modify the dip stick and dip stick tube. ???? Any way, it’ll be fine. So 1 3/4 of a litre takes it over the full mark , but before the full word. So that’s should be safe.
The engine is a K321S.

Rechecked the oil after running for a while and it’s just above the full mark a little bit. And got the charging working. But still have a wire to repair. And need to put a real fuse in the fuse holder. No fuse in it, but a mig welding gun tip. 8 mm wire. I think it said. Nice copper thing to make a connection. Right. ! Picture is not the one, but exactly the same.

Son finished up the wiring today for now. Lights now work. Just needed a ground for them to work. Quite a different light pattern from the glass lenses, just normal 1156 bulbs. On to the next step.
