1999 Case IH C50

1800 hours!

Supposedly 53HP

Descent unit made in England in IH factory. The Perkins 3cyl is a good workhorse like most all Perkins.

You will want to skid the 650 cca and put in a good bat, as these starters draw lots of AMPS in cold weather and it will kill your starter cranking with low amps.

put in a 1200 cca Optima, and you'll never have a problem starting it even in as low as -30c.

differential hydraulic wet disc, you need to keep a good eye on DIFF fluid contamination and how much water it has absorbed. Id drain it and refill it ASAP, as they are always over looked.

Enjoy your new Trac

Many thanks for the invaluable info! Will def look into what you suggest. Would love to hear anything else you have to add.

I showed up unannounced to check it out. Verified it was cold (34 deg F out) and the damn thing fired up instantly. I was impressed.
