Is there a site that shows the serial numbers vs the year built for Allis Chalmers B10? I did a search and came up with nothing.

Yes, but doing the xref to simplicity numbers & then finding the approx year is a hassle. If you post the #'s up here, maybe someone has an easier way to do it.

My serial number tag is gone but I know by the parts book that it prior to 50001. The motor has been replaced so I can't go by that. I wanted some idea of what year it was.

according to simple tractors they made that certain model in 1963,64,and 66 so that kind of narrows it down lol

This page on SimpleTractors gives the various model numbers of the B10 and its Simplicity cousins. You may be able to compare the differences between the three model years by downloading the manuals for all of the Simplicity models listed. 990308 1963&64 990395 for 66. OR look through the brochures listed on this page and see if you can identify the differences, then just use the appropriate model # for the A/C and use a serial number of your choosing, no one should be the wiser.
Hope this helps

The transaxle is yellow. I will have to check the hood. The tractor did not have a hood so I got it from another tractor but I think that trans was yellow also.

Yellow transmission means it is an early model b10 2025041 (manual start) 0r 2025042 (electric start) originally built with 9hp Briggs in 1963-64.
