I got a text from a guy wanting to sell a Allis B1 and one thing led to another and I ended bringing both home. I initially only wanted the 26-12-12 Good Year's and widened wheels off the '72 Raider 10 but after looking it over,I may just repower it. The tractor looks to have been a puller at one time,probably a fairly long time ago. Besides the 26's and widened wheels it also has later model heavy duty hub on it and the lift system has been removed. Someone also put a '66-'67 style long hood on it and had to raise it in the front,similar to the way Wheel did in '66-'67 to clear the big block Kohler engines. Here's a few pictures of the old Hot Rod. They aren't the best,I got it home just in time to unload it into the garage as it started snowing. I hope to give it a better once over this week.

If you want to repower a WH, it's so simple to stretch the frame. There all kinds of possibilities.

I agree but I'm thinking stock or close to it,nothing crazy. Besides I have enough projects now that I need to keep it simple or it could take years to finish.lol :smilewink:

We like horses!  Battery box outside, NOT!   Big wheels, neat.  Almost seems that is not the orig hood?? Grill is wrong for that model,might be older  hood?  I've never seen one mounted like that in front, but seems to match the dash ok. Most hoods have long pin and is mounted thru the quick-tach mount, which may be gone???  Hard to see pix. One of easiest tractors to work on, they steer great, and have solid trannies, long as he hasn't beat it in pulling. Some pop out of gear, usually 2nd when under load if worn.

I agree guys. I have long said the 66-67 style long hood is my favorite style.

You are right gl. The tractor is a '72 and the hood is a '66,first year of the long hood. As for how it is mounted,he had to raise it to clear the big block Kohler engine. Wheel Horse done the same thing on the '66-'67 long hood tractors,their pedestal was a little different though.
