Newbie checking in...good to see other people appreciate this old iron as well.

I've got a 68' B110 that I'm just starting to tear apart for a restoration. It ran 6+ years ago, was put into storage, and has sat ever since (outside under a lean-too).

I plan to freshen up the engine (not sure if the valves are adjustable??), re-paint it, fix the major steering slop, etc.

But, I have the following questions:

1) Paint - short of going to a paint store with some paint from it and having them mix up some stuff to shoot, is there any type of spray paint out there available for it? (I'm horrible at shooting, but can do it if I have to)

2) Decals - would like them to be there, and right now taping them off is the only thing I know of that will allow me to keep them..there aren't any reproductions out there, right?

3) Rear brake "shoe"....the one on the tractor is fairly worn and de-laminated half way around..replacements??

4) Gas tank - the one on it is rusted out internally, bad. I can try to cut/reform another bottom half and graft it to the top, but before I go to that extent, is there any replacements out there?

5) Anything else I should be aware of??


I've done plenty of engine builds/resto's on cars, but this is my first tractor...I figure if I can get away with 500 into it, I'm much better off than those Chinese "tractors" they sell at home depot and the like.

Welcome to GTtalk.

For the decals reproduction decals are available but I can't promise they would be "in stock". One of our members olcowhand makes decals and there are also some other sources like Maple Hunter and a few others. Some of the Allis guys can help you out better then I can.

I will post an answer to question 2. These folks have the decals you need. Allis Chalmers B-110 . We have purchased from them ourselves and have been very satisfied with them. There may be other sources for decals, but this is the one I know about. Hope it helps .

Neat little tractors. I have a B112. If yours has the variable speed, you might want to look over the bearings there. Also, a lot of bevel gears have been replaced over the years, check for slop there.

Many of the parts are online & thru Allis or Simplicity. You might ck with Allis to see if they have paint or paint codes.

BTW: :welcome: to the Forum & don't forget the pics.

chris,:welcometogttalk:

Welcome to the "GREATEST SITE ON EARTH" for Gt's anyway. For most all your used parts, I would look at ebay, there are several dealers there, that have the parts you mentioned above in your list.
As for paint, search the net for paint codes for your tractor.. or use this link.
