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.

Nice looking GT there. Like the ags on the front axle. Looks like a good project. Will be awaiting further updates.                                              Roger.

Nice tractor. Too bad some one didn't cover the exhaust. That pipe just acted like a big rain gauge. Sounds like you have a supply of parts to get it going soon.

I got some time to work on the Squire 10 today. First I blasted off some of the yellow paint which reveled the original paint and decals. Then I broke the engine loose with a 3ft pipe wrench and me standing on it. I also started to check the internals of the engine. It's looking like this one can be rebuilt. Until I get the time and money to rebuild the original engine I will just use the spare I have in the shed.
