Tracked down a rumor this morning..  Bought an Allis Chalmers B10 with a tiller.  Made the deal and drove it about six blocks to home. I will post some pictures of it in action as soon as big brother (Trail95) finds out i have it and wants his garden done.    Rick

Nice find but I don't see the tiller drive pulley and clutch set up for the "B" series tractor. That tiller has the idler pulley set up for a cone clutch tractor....Dave

:ditto:   I was wondering what was wrong with that tiller and dave is correct the clutch drive is wrong, still even with that it is a very nice machine, I have one just like it and love it.

I don't have a clue as to the correct tiller for that tractor.  I may have lost the tiller anyway.   I tilled my brothers garden today.  He's wanting to put that tiller on his Simplicity.     I really only wanted the G.T. when i went to look at it.   Whatever that tiller originaly fit it still does a good job.    Rick

The correct tiller for the Pre 1967 FDT's would be one with a separate clutch/speed reducer assembly (mule drive) mounted on the side of he tractor hitch but the tiller you have was introduced with the late model FDT's with the molded seat pans. It is perfectly adaptable to the B10 and earlier tractors. The tiller number 990392 was designed to fit the B10 and previous tractors. You can see what it looks like in this manual .

The older tillers are all over the Internet for sale at ebay and craigslist but most do not include the mule drive, the absence of which makes the tiller useless. The tiller you have (likely 990694)has the pto and speed reducer built in which makes it very hard to loose. They are very desirable so don't let it go without a fight.

I have the correct PTO for your tractor if you need one LMK...

But that pto would be incorrect for his tiller if he kept it.

  My suggestion would be to keep the tractor and tiller as they are, if it works why mess with it.

Maybe it might just be my equipment but I am unable to access your videos. I actually had to reboot my phone because it locked up my YouTube app.

That tiller, as Phil says, is perfectly suited for the tractor. Unlike a cone clutch mated tiller, this one has the engagement built into the tiller itself. There is a handle for engaging and disengaging, beside the driven pulley. This setup was begun in '68 and lasted through the 3300 series. They introduced the cone clutch with the 3400's and with that, simply quit adding the engagement handle. Even later model tillers can be very easily converted for use on fdt's by simply adding the handle.

Your tiller is superior to the early mule drive style, whi h was only 32" and was a much more open design....dirt flies everywhere.

Isn't it amazing how nice they till?
Congrats. You've got a good one there.
One thing, watch for pin slop where the tine tubes go on. Caused mine to have to be welded.
