Default Old Case SPV

Just putting up a pic of the first Case self propelled combine here. Palouse was over a couple weeks ago and was looking for a pic of the SPV which came before the 301 and later 302 which were versions of the old 120 levelland. These were earlier versions of the SP made from about 47 till 53 I would guess. Found this on CIH's site for one of the South American countries I think. It had the high bulk grain tank making it very hard to see the truck when unloading. Long chute on the end of the unloading auger. Straight up and down steering wheel and smaller operator's platform. Had an earlier D tractor engine probably. Very slow on the road. So was the early old 55 H Deere's too though.

It does look the same as this one I have of what I believe to be a model 120. Taken here in Sask. cutting wheat about 1960 beside a Massey #90. Strange why Case put the operator platform over on the opposite side to most others.

Found that I had some old owners manuals on hand with some good pictures. The 120 and 150 models appear to be more like the 301 and 302 models.













I've always enjoyed reading the old owners manuals for the things they talk about. These Case combines often came with elementary instructions on how to harvest a field. Nowadays they are more apt to be telling you how to calibrate the global positioning system. We've come a long way in a half century.








This is the best shot I have a a Case V-2 pull combine mentioned above.

This one is sleeping in shedded retirement but has the hydraulic rear wheel. I have the instruction manual for the whole rear drive kit and it's a complex arrangement. This 302 belongs to a neighbor.

Case had a older version of 120-150 that was called a sp9 an larger one called sp12. sp 9 used a sc engine . Dad bought a sp12 with 12 ft header about 1955 for 5500 dollars.Weight was 7500lb-really heavy machine!!!! Brother an i ran it for15 yrs.Was pretty trouble free with exception of sickle. Sections were to thin an bent-guards were pressed steel an bent- an sickle drive sometimes broke but fact we cut down barley with grass in it might have helped.Combines had a modified vac transmission with full floating axles .D engine had lots power.Ours being a non hilside went fast on road-probably faster than tractors.I think 120 an 150 had sickle improved an believe unloading auger that is straight was for beans asit would not crack them as much.Almost ran over my self changing air to sieves as you had to crawl under machine in front of drive tires to do it. Had engine running an( clutch variable speed was leaver you pulled with right arm an had lot of notches for different speeds an also 1 for release) while under combine i heard distinct sound of ileaver slipping out of notch an new combine would instantly go forward over me!!!!!!Made a hasty retreat an never did that again!!!!!!
