Got this unit in exchange for a set of tire chains that I had traded some labor for. So a tractor for about 3 hours of labor. The price was right I figure. The guy figured the motor was blown. I have since tried and it starts right up. Heres the thing when it warms up its like suddenly the exhaust valve sticks open and it looses compression. Im guessing thats what happens based on how it sounds and the flames shooting out of the very short muffler on it. Guess Ill have to tear the engine down and check what shape its all in. Apparently it has been run out of oil. Maybe the valve guide is scored? Who knows. Hopefully the engine can be repaired. The serial # is 9631859. The guy said its a 1972. The manual for it from Ingersoll mentions it being a 1969 or 1970. Is some one able to tell me what year it likely is?

It is not a 1972. It is a 1969. A sticking valve due to lack of
lubrication certainly seems to be the likely problem.

Thanks for the reply. That must be a fairly early one of these series then right? I'm happy to have an early one to add to my collection.

1969 is the first year for the 200 and 400 Series tractors. The
design emulates the full size 70 Series Ag tractors. Case was in
the process of revitalizing its corporate image. The familiar Old
Abe mascot was retired permanently at the end of 1968 along
with the former rounded styling of the hoods and the round
headlamps. New for 1969 was the squarish hood design and
rectangular headlamps and the term CASE POWER was
introduced.

As such, the red paint on your tractor is Case Power Red along
with the older Desert Sunset on the tin. Hopefully, your tractor
will still have the Speaker 777 headlamps that use glass lenses
instead of the plastic lenses. All of the garden tractors produced
for 1969 are known as PK models which stands for Performance
King. This was just another marketing tool used by Case. Your
442 has a 12 HP Kohler K engine.

It is the last year for the block style lettering on the hood and the
last year for the "elephant ear" rear fenders. Unfortunately, both
the 1969 and 1970 models still used the old-style attachment
system for mower decks, utility blades and snow blowers. In
1971, Case introduced the Snap Fast system which is still in use
today on the remaining Ingersoll models.

In my opinion, the 1969 makes a much better "collector tractor"
than it does a "work tractor" because finding the old style
implements in decent shape is getting harder and harder.

Contact Tony at Maple Hunter in Texas to get a set of new
decals. Paint is available at your local Case/IH dealer. New seat
cushions are available from Steve Guider along with the correct
exhaust system.

Thanks so much Tom Arnold. I love the wealth of info you bring to this forum and that you share it in such detail. This one doesn't have the square block lettering neither the PK on it. But who knows if someone has replaced the decals or maybe the hood. It looks like it may have been repainted. Thanks to others who have responded as well. Love this forum.

Most likely, it was repainted and the newer style decals were all that
the dealer could supply. The serial number does not lie and neither
do the elephant ear fenders.

Enjoy your tractor find.
