So I came across this Case 1090 last summer that I bought with intentions of converting to a puller. Well, after getting it home and thinking the whole deal over, I realized with it being such a rare low houred tractor (1092 hours), that it could serve a better purpose than tractor pulling, so I think I am going to let it go down the road. I already have a fully restored 1070, so I really don't need another 100 horse open station tractor. Anyway, I am at a crossroads and trying to decide what to do. I can't decide if I should fix a lot of the little things that really need to be done to make it usable, or just sell it as is. It is cosmetically pretty rough, mainly because it sat just inside a lean-to for 20 years, but mechanically, it seems very sound, but needs some tlc. Some of the things I think need done are: new rear rims and tires (sat with calcium in them all those years, pretty nasty), new seat, replace the old style Case hydraulic outlets, rebush the front axle pivots, and a new muffler. I've already changed the motor oil and filter, fuel filters, and coolant, and it starts and runs beautifully. After doing these things, I think the tractor could go to the field. I guess my question is, do you think I would get more interest and a better return putting some money in it, or not spending anything on it and selling it as is. Check out the pics and let me know what you think. Oh yeah, I think there were only about 450 of them built, and this one is a 1971 Delta model.

Leave it as is. You start getting into rims and tires you won't get the return out of your money. The little stuff can somewhat be the same way. If I get carried away on ones I'm selling, it generally doesn't pay. It should sell off of hours and rarity more than anything. The front pivots shouldn't be that bad if the hours are right.

I would do the seat and muffler. Steps and lights in the fenders would be a big help too if you have them

Thanks for saving her. The delta was tough on equipment before it went to realy getting big, especialy in rice; Tough ground, mud and water at harvest, levees your climbing over. The case rice special combines were heavier framed and thus more dollars than a regular grain combine. geared real slow too.

Where you located. Be interesting to know where she came from. Arkansas by chance?

I think its good unit to let someone restore, wish I had room for it. I never heard of a Delta, what is different that its called that? Was there other models called Delta? Rod.

Wow, this is the first I have ever seen or even heard of a 1090, and it looks pretty tough with the large front tires on it. What is the difference between this and a 1070? It looks to be in fairly decent shape for the age and conditions it was in. I would love to see some more pictures of it if at all possible.

There was a 1090 Delta, Rice, and Western. I had a Western But have never been able to find out what made each one special. Mine had no 3pt and enclosed 1070 brakes. I always thought 1090s had 1170 brakes to let the water and mud out but maybe that was part of the package, I don't know.

As I remember (which is challenging for and old guy) is that the difference essentialy had to do with the front end and rear end, sealed out water and mud etc. I'm not sure about gears internaly. It was a hevier more expensive tractor to withstand the brutle rice field work.

I am interested in buying it just as it sits. I have been somewhat looking for one to restore. That one seems pretty original however I believe hour meter has rolled over at least once. If my email is not open let me know here and I will get it to you.

Jon,
The differences are suttle to most people, but quite extensive. There is one that showed up in our area 25 years back, that is still in use, and well cared for.
Here are the differences that I am aware of. Basically Case took bigger ruggeder parts from the 1170 and put them on a 1070.
1) 1170 front axle with external steering
cylinders.
2) Heavy duty Fixed arm 3pt, and thick 2 roller
drawbar
3) Delta model only, 1170 style disc brakes. ???
4) Cast Iron nose peice
5) Engine side rails and slide out weight frame.
6) not sure, but think they were all 8spds.
7) Both fender stiles available, Cab ???? never
saw one with a cab.
