Found this one locally and will be picking it up tomorrow afternoon. I always liked these tractors since I mowed with my Dads Wards Garden Mark Squire when I was a kid. My Dad still uses it from time to time. I need another tractor like a hole in the head, but I couldn't pass it up. This Allis was bought new by the sellers Dad and Grandfather. It hasn't run in a couple of years, but fixn' em' is fine with me! One front tire and the muffler have been replaced. The grill emblem is missing and the seat has been covered with some red stuff. The worst part is that I have to wait until tomorrow afternoon to go get it. Here's a few pics he took. It looks to be in pretty good shape and could use a good cleaning. Can't wait to see how it looks cleaned up!

Yup, it was listed last night 15 minutes from my house. I talked with the owner for quite a while, and he told me the entire history of the tractor since new. He's going to look for the manuals for it, also. It wasn't a steal by any means, but I like the fact that it spent it's life on a farm only 15 minutes from where I grew up and still live.

So, that was the tractor, i know about the price, i am very glad a GT Talk member got the tractor, a single owner tractor is a rare thing and with such a history makes it so much more better.

It looks to be in very good shape, i am thrilled you got that tractor, lol, i was just looking at it last night.

 

Is that a modlboard plow and sleeve hitch i see in the left of the photo ?

   Very nice, That looks like a very early one.  23d engine? They are hard to get parts for.  I do have some stuff here for those that I no longer need, steering gears and such.  I would love to have better pics of the bottom plow with the cutter blade, I have a setup like that but the cutter blade was never attached and the brackets to hold it are missing. 

   You are even getting a rear stinger weight, nice.  had one of those to but let it go with a machine I sold.  Keep me in mind if you want to sell it. and good luck with it they are great machines.

I see the thrower is the very first one made in 1962-63 with the rope pulley for the chute, my later three belt thrower has the wrap around rope.

I have the part number for the bearing in the PTO pulley hub if it is sloppy/loose, very easy to change out.

 

petrj6, the Allis B-1 has the Briggs 19D, 7 1/2 hp engine.

Here is the only other pic I have until tomorrow. I will definitely post more pics, and whatever info I find out about it. I'll be glad to post pics of the plow from every angle.

The owner said he thought his Dad bought it in 58' or 59' ,but from the research I've done, they were first produced in 61'? I will get all of the codes off of it tomorrow. I gotta say you are a great bunch of folks here. I recently joined the forum and I'm having a blast! Thanks for the offers on spare parts and where to find them. This tractors life is far from over!

   Ok I gotta ask HOW MUCH!!   I picked up a deal like that about 6 years ago with two tractors, tiller, two decks, and the plow for $400.  but none of it was that old, all my stuff is from the mid 60's.  I have never seen a blower like that, with three belts??  Great find.

I forgot, there is one more pic showing a small trailer in the background. He said I can have it, and there's another in the attic.
