Oil level taps

Postby W6NZ » Fri Feb 24, 2006 1:21 am

in a Farmall A sump. Both mine are broken off on the outside therefore I can't check the oil levels, the only way that I can check is to completely drain the sump and add five litres.
Can anyone tell me if there is a repair kit for these.? I don't want to have to buy a whole sump if I can avoid it.
Thanks for any help.

They show up on ebay every now and again. Are yours broken off and the holes welded up, or just missing and plugged?
Best,
Mike

If you are not concerned about the originality, and the threads are still there, just pick up a couple radiator drain cocks.

Case IH sells plain old drain cocks as replacement for the original.

Many, thanks, Merlin, what a great site and right on the page that I wanted. 8)
I have to say that I'm so impressed with the calibre of guys/gals on this forum everyone is so friendly and helpful. If anyone is planning a trip "down under" at anytime, now or in the future, you would be very welcome in our home.
Apart from the decals for the FC-C, I have been able to get the other bits and pieces that I needed plus tee shirts and caps , I.H. of course, lol, from company/s in America and the service and speed of delivery has been fantastic.
A Big Thank you to you all. :D
