Found this and it reminded of what I thought I once saw as a rear weight on the back of a B series Allis.  Is it an Allis weight or just an ordinary chunk of iron with a pipe welded on it?

Looks to be the rear counterweight that goes onto the lift bar for Allis/Simplicity.  Greg or Josh can say for sure.

Doesn't look right, I thought the weight had a rod that slipped into the rear lift. That needs a rod to slip into that tube and the rear lift on the tractor.

Yes, you are right Cat, they did have the rod welded to the weight.

Nope.  Would certainly work as one though, if that tube is 1" ID.  What's she weigh?

I think the tube is 1" and it feels like about 20 lbs. or so.  I'll probably hang it back there just for conversation.

Are those Saw marks I see in the end, I bet it's home shop made for A/C-Sim. or Cub.

 

Nice piece to have. :thumbs:
