I finally have the HB112 back up to running condition.  Still needs some carb work (slowly dripping gas), but it pushed the 4" of slush we've gotten like it wasn't even there. The power lift for the plow is a great feature.  I'm not sure I have the correct lift rod, but the one I have works great.  

 

We don't see many Allis Chalmers products on the forum, so here are some photos:

That's a nice looking 112.  Thanks for posting those great photographs.  I don't like that wet heavy snow.

It looks good. The paint looks original.  Do you have the tiller attachment for it? I had trouble with the float valve on my B10. It took a lot of cleaning to fix it.

Nice!  I want an Allis Chalmers: I don't know why, but I always have.

Some of the paint is original, so has been done.  I do have the tiller. I had a problem with the belt tension arm, but the good folks here helped me solve that.

Glad to see one of my favorites back up and running! Nice job and good luck with the carb leaking.

Do you use the tiller in your gardens? Next you need a B10 with a cart and cultivators for her. The Allis cart is an attention getter the first time you dump it all the way. Have you showed her all the attachments on the SimpleTractors.com site? Good Luck, Rick

I have a boat load of attachments and spares, but not a dump cart.  Next stop, SimpleTractors.com ...

Dear Santa.

 

I have been a good boy this year (so far).  For Christmas I would like a post hole digger, and a trencher, and a loader, and a dump cart for my Allis HB112.  You can find them on the website boyscout862 mentioned in his letter to you.  Oh, and can you put some new knives for my sickle bar mower in my sock, instead of that black lump you left this year?

 

Yours truly,

 

N.C.BD.O.

If you had trouble finding the dump cart, here is the page with the sequence of dumping. http://www.simpletra...n/dump_cart.htm  I have spent many hours on Simpletractors researching my ACs and Simplicities. It is a wealth of information.

 

Here is fully dumped. I have one and passed on another a few weeks ago for $100.

That is simply amazing!  I gotta find/build one.   

 

Have you had any luck finding a source for sickle bar knives?

 

P.S.  I'd like to see pictures of your Allis collection.

I've got over 60 tractors and even more attach ments to repair and sort out. I have to remove some dangerous trees when the weather dries up, then I can sort them and take some pictures. I hope to get rid of alot of LTs this summer. Search for the original trailer they are very cool. Have you showed your wife? My FIL built a GT for my wife when she was 11.. She has had some neat ones over the last 50 years. I hope that you are also learning to can the harvest from your garden. Good Luck, Rick

Three years ago the wife put a couple dozen jars in the basement.  Two years ago she emptied the closet in the bathroom & filled it with preserves.  Last year she emptied the spare bedroom and installed shelves (full).  We also have three freezers.  This winter she bought a pressure canner.  Oh, and she just bought the stuff for making cheese.
