Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and I have a few questions. I am not a farmer, but I am an old Iron nut. My family has many tractors including a 1921 Heider, 1929 Rock Island, 1935 JD GP, a Twin City KTA, Farmall F 12, McCormick Deering T20 crawler, 1931 Rumley 6, 1941 AC C on steel etc. But overall my Grandfather, Dad and myself are Case Guys. I have a 1950 D, a 1956 "300", and a couple others. Grandpa has a 15-27? Cross motor, VAC, LA, L, C, and a "77" Case Combine.

My Question is this. I have bought a barn full of scrap iron that also includes a mostly complete 530 that looks like it has new pistons, sleeves and bearings. There is also a "400" gas wide front that is missing one cylinder head and has no rear tires. The rims are there. Is there a market for any parts on this tractor? I don"t want to scrap it, but it looks like it has been cannibalized for a while. It has really nice tin on it.

My second question is the lady I am buying this scrap iron also has a running "400" that has the Eagle Hitch and hydraulic remotes. The clamshell fenders are rusty, which the parts tractor has nice ones, and pretty worn out tires. What would this tractor be worth? It ran last year and has pretty sloppy steering.

Thank you for any help you can give. I am located in Salem, Oregon. Zane

Welcome 4x4! There is always a market for parts from a tractor like that, especially if the motor is not set up. The WFE will grab somebody"s attention too. I"d grab what I need for the running one...it"s should bring about what a Farmall M will actually sell for (Not get listed for) $1800-$2500. Pete

Just about everything has a higher-than-scrap price value for what it is when dealing with old tractors. You could part them out on ebay and make a lot more than you could get for scrap. Always remember, they don't make those pieces any more.For every tractor that goes to the scrapper, there's a few more that could be saved from such a fate. I wish you weren't on the other side of the country, or else I'd be interested in the wide front. BTW, welcome to the Case forum. Case Nutty is in Wyoming, so he's probably closer to you than anyone else I know of here .

If you were not so far out there, I would be very interested in the 530. That is the next Case I want for my collection. That is the third tractor my Dad had. At the present, I have a VAC, 2 DC's, and a D.
