I found this for sale on CL a week ago and went to pick it up last night. Its an Allis Chalmers HB112 which is a hard to find model I think. I couldn't find much info doing a google search. Anyway its another project, currently it doesn't run. The seller told me it needed the carb cleaned. Overall it's in fair condition, it looked better in the dark but I can't complain. Most of the problems appear to be cosmetic like the seat and paint job. I'll find out if there are any other problems after I get it running.

I know where one of those is sitting.It's been sitting in my neighbors cottage garage up on the mountain for the past 40 years or so.I would ask about it but he's not the type of fella that lets stuff go cheap.There's also an old hard top vw karmann ghia stuffed in there.

 

Last time I seen the tractor it looked near mint.Perfect seat and all.That was 20 or so years ago though.I used to mow for him up at the cottage.

Very nice find. The HB-112 is definitely one of the rarer B-Series.

One of these days I'll get a few minutes of free time to see if it will fire up. Also now that I bought this one my brother and I have the whole B100 series.

Got one just like it in the barn waiting for me to get to it.  Bought it at an auction of a long time AC dealer & have never seen it running.  About the same shape as yours but missing the battery side cover.

I had some time today to work on it. After a quick points cleaning the engine fired and ran on carb cleaner. Now I need to get the carb cleaned and it should run on its own again.
