I hope you scan those brochures and upload them for others. Glad it's running!

 

I need to get going on a lot of scans...I'd like to contribute several oddballs that I have.  I need to come into the office on a weekend and use the fancy scanner we have here.  The department I work near runs it as a printer nearly non-stop during business hours.

 

Your boy loves it :dancingbanana:

 

That kid LOVES tractors!  He gets to chit-chatting and yelling while I drive around with him on my knee.  I have one with a small tranny pulley, that realy flies, and if I get going fast, he throws his arms in the air like he's on a roller coaster!

He has several tractors already...he's just not old enough to drive them yet :D   He can almost reach the pedals on his Allis Chalmers C pedal tractor Dad got him for his 1st birthday :thumbs:

awesome tractor

are the B-1's rare? I bought one that someone went crazy and painted red.... looks like house paint?

also I have a friend who has one which I think I can get for $80 but the frame is cut and so it the hood, I think to put the later 10hp in? it def has a copper painted motor in it

they seem to come up often in my area

also how do you date the 19D thats on my b-1?

They are, being the first of Allis Chalmer's GT line, under the flywheel, pull it and look inside near the hub there is a date casted, example : 64 =1964

 

Another way better way : http://www.asecc.com...iggs/data4.html

He got it from the junkyard. Still a decent tractor though for now. He also has a B-1 with duals on inside a shed.

Seems that way, B-1 was 63-64, may have been used less then the big 10, each tractor and engine wear different and lives different lives after birthing at the Simple plant.

Man, missed this thread, nice old tractor. Love my Sears, but AC's hold my heart. Old girl sounds great, neat video of the boy.

Never seen that kind of muffler though.

Usually blown out, original to the tractor, Mfg'ed by Nelson, can still be had new, pricy.

New has been depleted for around 5 years or so now, but this past year a fella ponied up the dough to get the tooling and production pieces in place, and is kicking out reproductions now...and reasonably too.  The guys on simpletractors all sined up for XXXX number of initial units, to help him get off the ground.  I think they run $50-60 each...USED nelson's were running upwards of $100 before he began making them.  I love the burp of the old Nelson Can!
