Here is my " allisgator ". John Deere had their gator and this is made from B-10 Allis Chalmers parts so it became the allisgator. I used a second Allis rear end that is on a 4 bar linkage bolted to the rear of the stock tractor. The linkage lets the second rear end travel 6 inches up or down. I put a second pulley on the tractor tranny input shaft and belt drive the second tranny. I have to shift the 2 trannies seperatley but the both run off of the same clutch. It doesn't turn as sharp as it did originally but does turn well enough to use. This tractor does very well in tractor pulls. When I hitch it high I get enough weight transfer to bring the front end up off the ground and the 4 drive tires just dig in and go!

That looks really good.Brings back memories of the Allis B12 that I used to own.My Dad wanted it so I sold it and delivered to him.It had the mower deck,tiller,dozer blade,sickle mower,& a Allis trailer.I loaded it into the back of my pickup and 2 days later 22 1/2 hrs later I unloaded it in his yard.Yeah it sucks being that far away from family.He sold all his stuff and I asked him to keep the dozer blade and sickle mower for me.So when I was out to see him,hauled that stuff back to my home.Funny how things go in circles.Again really good job on the Allisgator.Larry

Thanks for the comments guys. The allisgator has the stock 9 horse power briggs 23d engine in it. When I pull it I hook the chain about 3 inches above the drawbar hole and put both trannies in 1st gear. I get enough weight transfer that it lifts the front end off the ground and the old girl just digs in and goes. The first time it really surprized me that it could lift the front end and I still can't quite figure out the geometry of how it is set up that lets it do that. It is amazing to me the torque that the old Briggs engine has and how it just hangs in there and pulls.
