This is the 416h Allis garden tractor I went through a few years back. My BIL up the road has it now. It was his Uncle's. then his Dad's, then his, then mine. It was worn badly everywhere and almost un-useable. I traded him out of it to give it new life. I mowed with it a few years, but was thinning the herd and wanted it to stay in the family, so offered it back to BIL on trade. I got his JD214 which I plan to sell this spring.
I had to weld up all mounting holes, then re-drill. All linkages were worn & needed work too. Engine got rebuild, was fine when I traded, but ost the rod dipper & nearly threw the rod. Had to replace the deck, which I had one off an MF14 which is the IDENTICAL shell....just use Allis bracketry. Then I changed the brake pedal to pedal hydro control. The former hand hydro lever got shortened & now serves as parking brake.
Here's some pics "before".

Here are a few pics of changing her to pedal hydro. The pedal I just tacked a temp sheet on for testing.

Here she sits at local show. She mows like a mad dog & looks good to boot. Glad I restored this "family tractor"! I made the decals too, and these were the hardest to date! All colors have to be put on separately. Lining them up was a beast!

This tractor with stock tires was tippy on sides of hills. I cut out the rim centers, flipped them, then welded in toward one side to allow clearance when I added these 12" wide rear tires. She holds ground now!

Excellent. I am sure your bil is proud of her too. This will give me a chance to see how this promote to article feature works. Will probably take care of it tonight when I get home. Thanks.
