Picked up an Allis Chalmers 608 LTD today. Sat outside so its a little rough but I couldn't pass up an opportunity at an Allis. Had no battery so I spun it over with a set of jumper cables off my truck when I got it home; good compression and starter spins it good but no spark. It is a 1980 model so the Briggs engine still has points. Decided that rather than tracking down a set of points and trying to get the flywheel off I would just update and ordered a Mega-fire module that converts from points to electronic igintion. That will be here later this week and hopefully that will work so in the mean time I plan to clean up the carb, new spark plug, and fix one rear tire that has a broken valve stem. I will post updates as I get it running; hopefully I will get it torn down and repainted but I have a few other projects already started that will come first so for now just get it running and driving.
