When I was in college and working for the school on their farm, they had one of those for the nursery research farm.  I used to bushhog with it and use it for chores around the nursery.  Very cool little tractor, I liked it!

Sorry...I waven't had much time recently to update Yall. 

She found a Super A and a Super C about two hours from here. The A was dirt cheap and the C was reasonable being it and the A didn't. The guy made the C sound perfect  and it seemed to be but when we got it home and ran it a while we checked the oil again and it looked like creamer with a little bot of coffee in it. We drained the oil and pressurized the cooling system and there was no water in the oil pan so we out some good used oil in it and ran it a while but the oil stayed black and so we put good stuff in and it works great. At first it wouldn't run well at 3/4+ throttle...then we noticed that someone put the wrong carb on it and it didn't line up with the air cleaner and it was choking itself. 

More on that later.

The A has a cracked block (still not sure whether it is cracked on the inside) and the engine is stuck.

Both have cultivators and the A has half of the planter attachment.

The brakes on the C don't work well (full of oil)...are they drums or disks?

Disc brakes. The bull pinion seal has failed.

I don't know if the bull pinion cage has the same "gotcha" as the H and M does, but many a bull pinion cage has been broken by people who think they can pull them out from the outside, and when they don't move, they pull harder, and harder, until, SNAP.

The bull gear has to be removed before the cage will come out. That requires lifting the deck on an H or M.

I THINK the seal can be changed from the outside.

They are disk brakes. I probably have a block that's not cracked still . Has a fast hitch and that makes it more desirable.

I would like to see the carburetor and the engine block numbers. Also a picture of the block where it bolts to the bell housing on the right side of the tractor.
