Thought we could post info, pictures, diagrams etc in this thread. That way there is one "go to" place for this info. I have collected a few pictures off Daniels yahoo site of tractors with this attachment. Will also post pictures of the mounts and weight box off of mine. Note the mounts for the rear weight box - same as the ones on mine so I am confident these are factory installed.

More Ark info. Thanks to Jack and my BH binders, I am able to share this info. Pretty cool info. All you loader guys will like this info. It has all the model numbers for all the GT's they built them for listed.

I don't see the JB line in the printout.  They must have been a different series loader, as I do know they built a 600 series loader that was used on the Allis Chalmers 620/720 GT's.

 Daniel some where in my notes I remember the Ark loader for the JB was Model #514. I will try to find it and post it.

I thought you posted these pictures. That tractor is a JBII.

I likely did. I know there was another one, oh lord, must more rusted that had an FEL attachment on it. This is going back 4/5 years ago now

Very cool doc. I have never seen or heard of an Ark made for an Allis B series. Ive seen several for the Allis 300/400 series.

Working on my JB with the FEL mounts. Had to take off the front hood etc to get to the front of the motor. Look what I found.

Well that's definitely being used. Looks like it needs some beefing up there.

Looks like the loader mounts sure put some strain on things!  But if you're not gonna have a loader on it, then I'd just pull them down into place, then grind a V into the crack & weld it up from the inside, then grind down smooth.  This will be plenty strong for just holding the hood/grill/tank.  Welding the underside would be harder to get to, but I don't feel necessary if welded proper from the top.

I found the same broken frame problem on my JBI. It has a FEL as well.

Yea, I noticed in one of your "before" pictures that your JB's frame had been damaged as well. I was looking for it, since I expected all will have that damage.
