CC 70 & 100 Hood Question

Postby AL Farmall Boy » Wed Oct 05, 2016 8:43 am

I have a CC 70 and 100 (both 1965 models), and on both tractors the steering wheels interfere with the hood when raising and lowering the hood. Is this a coincidence that someone may have installed aftermarket steering wheels on them and they aren't the right size? I do know that they "look" like the correct steering wheels. The wheels are about 1/2 inch too large and require you to force the hood past them. I don't want this happening when I repaint them.

From the parts manual it does look like the model 70 has a different wheel than the model 100. Nonetheless, I'm having the same problem with both

No, this is common problem with those tractors. The grill has either moved back, or has been pushed back by running into things. There's 4 bolts holding the grill down to the frame, and they are slotted fittings, so that the alignment of the hood can be adjusted. Yours have just allowed the grill to slide backwards. It's an easy adjustment.

Ok. Sounds great! Thank you so much. The model 70 looks like it is in good original condition (to me). It has nice looking original paint, original dealer decals, original IH bolts all over with paint on them. Original engine, 2 original looking tires, etc. I went to try and start it up (bought it non-running) to see if its looks proved its condition. I poured gas into the Very Clean gas tank, and a fresh battery; it fired to life with about 1-2 rotations of the engine!! She runs perfectly and revs up and down perfectly. I truly believe it is a low hour original tractor. I guess I will need to upload some pictures for you all to judge.

I have just put some other tires on it that are usable so I could drive it around. Next will be to fix the loose fuel sediment bowl to the tank, and to get the deck mounted and working.

Thank you Stanton. I have had the 100 for a few years and bought the 70 about a month ago from an old IH guys son. He used to rebuild old farmalls for years and after he died his son sold the stuff. We bought him out of old parts, attachments, and a couple of tractors.

I posted a bunch of pictures of the CC 70 in another thread in case some of you wanted to see it.

All the 70 and 100s I have don't have enough adjustment that previous poster talk about.
I will add a washer or 2 between the frame and grill to the hole towards the rear. It will give the hood clearance you need.
Some time in the tractor's life the grill was push back.
