We are getting closer to firing her up! I finished the wiring yesterday now I just need to hook the battery up and test everything. After that I still have to run the fuel line and hook up the choke cable. Does anyone have a pic of the choke cable mounted to the engine?

Got a couple pics of how my choke is hooked up for you!

What are the colors you used to paint this?  Since I have a parts tractor, I can get some things painted without taking it all apart.

I used Allis Chalmers Corperate Orange and AC Cream. The orange was what they were using on the big tractors that year and the cream was used through 1977. They used ac cream and cloud white throughout the years but the cream was the only one I could pin down to the time my GT was built. It has a light yellow tint to it in the can but looks really nice sprayed on.

 

I got my paint through NAPA which is Martin Seynour I will get you the mix number off the orange can at work next week. The number for the creme got wiped off the can but I think I still have it here somewhere so I will look today.

I found my notes on the paint codes. What I have is:

 

Allis Chalmers Corporate Orange is Dupont 29049 or Tisco TP270

 

Allis Chalmers Cream is Dupont 921901 or  PPG 8638

 

My local NAPA used these to convert to Martin Seynour codes

Very nice job on the Allis 416. Always a great feeling to hear them fire for the first time.

Finally got to feeling good enough to take her out on her maiden drive. I spent about 45 minutes driving her around the yard today breaking in the engine. I have one leak to fix at the govenor shaft. I also need to adjust the shuttle because the lever does not want to stay forward. Kenny you love adjusting these shuttles so much you might want to take a road trip to Tennessee to help,lol.

As long as it's warm there! LOL  It takes multiple adjustments to get it right. Just keep working on it. I got lucky with the 2nd tractor as it works real nice!

It is on back burner for now. I am waiting on the funds for my decals and I still have to water sand and polish the paint.

I have been covered up at work and Little Allis had to wait a few weeks.  I went to start her last week and a big surge of gas shot out the breather and down the side of the engine to the floor. When I turned the switch off she backfired and everything caught fire!!! We got that out before it ruined the new paint thank goodness. Yesterday I took the carb apart and just as I suspected the float was full of gas letting it flood out. There was an old repair on the float and I think that is where the gas is coming in. I guess tomorrow I will be ordering a new float for the carb.

 

Still debating on the rear tires ags or turfs. The turfs do a good job in the yard but this one will be used mainly for blading the drive,some light dirt work and a show or two. I have six other grass killers so I'm still leaning to the ags over the turfs. I really like the way those V-61's on the front work but they do cut the ground if it is soft.
