Default 18-32 Case New Project

Earlier this summer while on our family vacation we stopped in to see a good friend of mine and see some of his collection. While there I noticed a couple nice looking tractors outside in his "bone yard". After doing some thinking I called him up and asked if any of the tractors outside where for sale, he said yes. I asked him about a couple crossmotor cases that he had. He told me that he had an 18-32 that was pretty much complete that he had overhauled but lost interest when something bigger came along. He pushed it outside and that is where it sat for about 2 years. We agreed on a price and the beginning of September my brother and I hopped in the pickup and made a 700 mile round trip to pick up the Case. Here it is. Most of the hard stuff is there like the manifold and air washer. I will need some fender brackets and misc parts and pieces. The tractor is loose and I actually put some gas in it and had it running for a few minutes last weekend.

Here are some pictures of the "projects" that got pushed in front of the Case, I would have probably done that same thing....

Looks like a great project! Are those 2 Rumelys? And what's the story on the Minnie?

It's not often you see Doug cut loose of a project. Got yourself a nice winter project there.

Yes, they are both "E" Rumelys. If you are talking about the tractor in the background of picture 1 thats an Avery that he's gathering parts for.

Default Re: 18-32 Case new project

I have been slowly trying to get the gas tank and hood mounted on the 18-32 Case. Could anyone with a late k18-32 take some pictures of the gas tank mounting bracket. The hood I received with this tractor has the starting tank mounted to it with 2 straps. Some of the later K's have 2 brackets that come out from underneath the main tank and the starting tanks sits on the brackets. I am not positive what I need so any pictures would help. The serial number tag is missing from the fender on mine but 69586 is stamped on the frame, also mine has the bigger steering wheel. Thanks for your help.

The E engine in post 2 appears to have an early governor cover with squared edge on the back. Serial numbers of them?

The Rumely's belong to a friend who is 350+ miles away. I know he said one is early and one is late. As far as serial numbers and any other details I will see what I can come up with.

After looking at pictures and talking to some fellow collectors I have come to the conclusion that I don't have the correct parts to put the gas tank on my tractor. The early tractors had the starting tank mounted to the side of the hood with 2 straps. The later tractors had 2 L shaped brackets that the starting tank sets in. I need the later style brackets that the gas tank sets on with the starting tank brackets. Would anyone have some brackets for a later 18-32 that they are willing to part with? Here is a picture I borrowed from steel wheels.net to show the style that I am looking for.

Just a quick update. Progress has been real slow on the crossmotor too many other things getting in the way. When I got this tractor the gas tank bracket was missing. After looking at some sales brochures and pictures the 15-27 and the 18-32's up to about 1927 had the starting tank mounted to the side of the hood with a couple of straps. The later 18-32's had 2 L shaped brackets that came out from under the main tank and the starting tank rested on these brackets. I came up empty handed in my search for an original bracket. I talked to a friend of mine from Kansas who had an original and was kind enough to send me his bracket to use as a pattern. Thanks again Joe! Here are a couple pictures before we started assembling the new bracket.

I also managed to get the fenders back on and thankfully I am only missing one small bracket that can be fabricated. I am going to have to spend some more time straightening the fenders.

Things are slowly coming together on the Case. I have been working on getting some misc leaks fixed and getting it to start and idle better. I found that the float arm and needle are quite worn on mine making it hard to set the float height. Wondering if anyone has a float arm and needle for a Kingston L-1 carburetor?

Had some free time this afternoon so I took the Case for a drive and shot some video.

After a wrestling event with my radiator shroud yesterday I noticed that this tractor has the shroud installed just like I installed mine the first time, with the center inboard on the radiator. Mine pooched out all over so I unbolted it and put the center two bolt tangs over at the top and under at the bottom, it fit a lot better after that. I had pics of before I took it apart but couldn't find my darn camera.

Another kinda humorous note, that is the tank bracket from my tractor, was looking through some 18-32 archives for assembly details and noticed that.

I can't believe that was 4 years ago already. I sold that tractor in October of 2016 and it now resides in eastern Michigan. A week later I took a road trip and came home with my 12-24 Hart Parr. Joe B helped me out quite a bit with my Case project and he helped my brother with his 12-20 Case project a few years before.

I agree totally! No paint for this one as long as I own it. The story I got from the previous owner is that the tractor has all its original paint except for the gas tank.
