For at least a year now I had been bugging a friend about a tractor he had. Both of us thought it was an Allis. Anyway today he decided to let me have it. So we got it loaded up and I brought it home.
After looking at it for a few minutes I noticed a few minor things that weren't right for an Allis, like the grille. I started to scrape some of the paint off so I could see if there was orange under the yellow which would mean it was a Simplicity. Instead I found gold paint and then I checked the serial number tag which told me it was a Wards Squire 10.
So far the biggest issue the tractor has is that the engine is most likely beyond repair because it sat outside for a few years with the exhaust uncovered. Well I decided to twist out the oil fill plug and lots of water poured out instead of oil. Luckily I have a spare engine from an early B10 just sitting in the shed so I will use it for a replacement.
There are a few other things wrong too like the steering gears are worn out and the starter generator needs replaced. I also have those parts in the shed too.
I will keep updating this thread as I have time to work on the tractor.
