I really appreciate the help on this project. And now that I have attempted to adjust the valves the "old" way and found out how easy a valve adjustment is, I am confident with your help to get it done the right way. The easy way with the correct settings. But its raining today so I can't run it to heat it up again by mowing grass with a 6' pull-behind finishing mower we use on the larger areas where the cub is too slow. And of course I have the deer to butcher too. We gotta get them out of the soy bean fields! :thanx: :{_}:

Just FYI, all Super Cs have a serial number >100,000, both engine and chassis.

The first Super C was serial 100001.

Do you happen to know what year this transition took place? And where is the engine serial number? O will have to take a flashlight out to the barn and look for it.


I am surprised that the C123 in the Super C over serial #9506 had a different spec for the exhaust valve. Last year I adjusted the valves on my Farmall 200. The 200 uses the C123 and is really just a later version of the Super C. My operator's manual for the 200 indicates .014 for intake and exhaust.

The spec must have changed at 95096 and then changed again for the 200.
