In-between painting the components for the "Scrap Yard " and waiting for paint to dry and the building of a display base
I have now started on a 1/16 CASE tractor model/type 10-18 of about 1918/20
Having seen the little critter at the Malvern Tractor show a few weeks back and taking many detail photo shots - and now ploughing through books and service manuals have now made a start with the transmission engine sump and radiator base and drive many variations have come to light - some info was gained from the Smokestack (spelt Smokestak) forum for details of the brakes/clutch operating system a very informative forum for tractors and industrial equipment.

Next shots of the transmission case - sump For the cross mounted engine- and the radiator base. Different variations came out of the research (great for us model builders) all parts are trial fit at the moment and some more cleaning up of parts is still required - the tractor when completed will be in a partly dismantled state under a lean to shack

It looks as though you fabricated everything yourself; no commercial help. Extremely adequate. -- Russ

The only commercial part is the rear part of the transmission "a truck back axle" from a  1/16 Dennis fire engine kit
I have used the centre part of the axle . The photo of the CASE cross motor  10-18  (the real thing) has the standard transmission casing after asking a few questions about the variations from the (horses mouths) it came apparent the several variations became available due to the transmissions quote "only drives One rear wheel the other rear wheel clutching onto the power train when the going got tough" so many transmissions were modified by fitting a truck rear axle some ideas worked some did not !
I have used the axle type due to the failure of my first attempt just did not look right so a bit of research came up with some very "vague" if thats the word I want ! photos and descriptions from various books  and of corse the"horses mouth"from owners of these tractors .
The model (of the transmission) is based on LEGO blocks skinned in 15thou plastic card - the axle was cut and grafted onto the rear just like the real thing

The real thing - The chain case on the left (the one with the shiny oil cap )drives the rear wheel and the input from the engine is on the lower right
The lever on the right is for the Clutch/brake and hand brake only if the engine is running ! if the engine is stopped there are no brakes ! So I presume someone  has to throw a brick under the wheel !!
The only reason these variations came to light are because I like to know what things do - to try to get the model close to the prototype.

You seem to be getting pretty good at working with that newfangled plastic stuff. -- Russ
