From reading many of the post here understand the SC and possibly DC Case rowcrops were availible with foot clutch or hand clutch. Is this so?
might add just foot clutch no more hand clutch and it made them have live power also with them model yearNickatKY said:
would a DC3 with a hand clutch be live power by chance? Are those chain drive too? I'm a total Case novice and I'm looking at getting oneEricR said:I love my SC when it's running right. but any hand clutched non live power tractor used with a loader requires about four hands to operate. Dad's DC we had was hand clutch but live power, wasn't too bad.
The one were thinking of getting has the clutch on the leftcaseman said:another bit of info is the hand clutch was on the right side till 1952 and then it was on the left for that 1 year only remember 53 went to foot clutch so I think the 52 with left hand cluch is rare..
Looks like a mid to late 40's Case DC with adjusable wide front.The wide front is possibly from a later model DC because of the curved steering rod.The late DC Tom Graverson told me once that about 20% of the DC's built had adjustable wide fronts.Most adj wide frts were sent out west.DC Tom was the leading authority on DC Case tractors.There should be a serial tag on the dash under the battery.If its missing and the engine is original the serial number will be stamped in the bell housing flange behind the air cleaner.This tractor will not have live power.The live power SC/DC's have both brake pedals on the right side regardless if they are hand or foot clutch.DerickS said:This is what I'm taking home for a test drive this weekend, what is it? :lol:
