I noticed the parts book shows side curtains for the vac. Were these common? I have never seen a picture of a vac with them on. And then the big question, does anybody have a set for sale?

I believe they were for the stationary units only. Looking at mine it seems there would have to be some modification to create ones for the actual tractor.

Also, if you were wondering as a way of directing heat back to the operator I have attached a link to Burch Manufacturing Company Inc. which makes the Heat-Houser cabs. They do not specifically sell one for the VAC but they DO sell one for the 300 which would be a very close fit I would think. They are a bit pricey though...

yes that is what the parts look like in the parts book. Not using mine for winter operation so don't really need them. I was curious how they would look and I think being smooth it would be a little too much smooth metal going all the way back to the platform. Grew up with Olivers and the 70's had nice curtains but they were louvered so they improved the looks some. I don't think they would add much eye appeal to the VAC as that little cover over the sparkplug wires is one of the more interesting things on the tractor.

I could be using a heat houser next week though. I am going up to Marcus Iowa to ride in the annual Freeze Your Nuts and BOlts of Tractor ride. Not taking my Case 300 mi for that. I will either be on a friend's R MM, which is also a nice little tractor, or my Dad's (now brother's) 1650 Oliver. That tractor has high gearing in it. Our 50 mile tractor ride would only take a little over 2 hrs if I was leading the pack with that one! BUt the slowest tractor leads and that is my other brother's 8n.

I really like that R MM, but those things are very pricy. I can have 2 or 3 VAC for what one of those bring.

Started farming in 68 with a 64 Western Special 930 no cab. That first fall Dad bought me a Heat Houser from TSC....cost $100. Next fall I bought a Ansel cab for it....was actually warmer behind the comfort cover than in the cab.

our 1650 we bought used had a Cozy Cab on it, dad traded the cab even over for a heat houser, think we got the better end of that deal.
