My dad has an Allis-Chalmers 310 with breakerless ignition. If I remember right, the ignition switch wasn't easy to find and some of the other parts could get pretty expensive. The previous owner really had it rigged before my dad got it.

Good job on the head Kenny.  Before I got my end mill, I would sometimes use a 7" grinding wheel on a large angle grinder to clean up a warp.  I'd clamp the grinder in a vise with wheel up, then by hand, lightly put the head surface against the wheel, with the combustion are over the hollow center of the wheel.  I'd just take it down till it lightly touched the lowest spot, then finish with sandpaper on glass.  Always worked as I'm sure yours will keep working well also.

I just couldn't see sanding for hours on end to get it right, Daniel! Once the 'high' points were found, it was simple to take them off to get it flat again. Lots of back and forth, but less time getting it flat.

I've been looking through the Parts Manual. It shows the coil bolting to the head studs. Rather odd, but that's where it goes. Also checking out the elec. lift. The PO took it apart as it wasn't working. Kept the motor, but threw the rest out. I'll check the motor today. If it works yet, I'll be looking for a non working unit to hopefully make it usable again. Otherwise, I will have no implement lift.

Out of curiosity, has any one tapped into the hydro for a hydraulic lift? This has the Hydrogear hydro in it.

Among all the other things I did today, Jake got a trailer hitch. Since I don't have all the attaching parts for the tiller and no other implemnts for it, I decided it could do trailer duty for now.

It's a picec of 1/4" plate welded to a 1/8"wall 1X1 tube. A 3/4" shaft through the tube and 2 angle iron tabs to keep it in place.

 

I also pulled the carb and reset the float as it seemed a bit high. Now it runs much smoother. Still have a sticky valve once in a while. But it is better. Need a muffler for it real bad.

That wouldn't be too expensive.

Not sure if they make the stock one for it anymore. Not sure what else it may have been used on.

 

I'm wrong. I can still get it at New Holland for only $110! Yeah! Right!

Hitch looks great Kenny, maybe we find the missing tiller hitch parts of fab them up so you can use it.

Wouldn't you still need an operating lift? Or don't the tillers lift?

I can buy those locally and they are way too noisy!

Yes, he'd have to come up with a lift, but the GT is a hydro so I think he can make that work.

I have no idea how to tap into this hydro to use it for the lift!

The lift is an issue for sure. This is all I have of the original electric lift. Motor will not turn.

If I had some dimensions of a complete one (length, travel distance, etc.), I might find a newer one to put on it. Otherwise, I may have to find a manual lift for it.
