First off I'm a newbie to garden tractors. Bought a allis made t-10 last week for $150 and got it running today. Drove it around today and found that 2nd and 3rd gear have no power. It will move but won't go up hill. First seems to be fine. I know nothing about these so any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to GTT. I'm not familiar with the AC T10 but have 3 AC B10s. They are great tractors. Check our Manuals Section for the manuals that you may need. The drive belt is a common problem so is dirt in the carb. Good Luck, Rick

It did look worn. I'll try that. Here's a pic by the way.

I'm going to change the title to say Homelite. Just letting you know.

Good looking tractor and I would agree, change the drive belt.

Very nice looking tractor.  Never been around one but have heard a lot of + comments.  Just a suggestion, don't use the standard auto parts store belts.  Get the good ones from one of the site supporters.  Will last much longer and work better.  Been there done that.  Welcome to the forum.

 

Cute driver too by the way.

Unfortunately the guy I got it from knew nothing about the tractor or it history. If it was restored I believe it was done a while ago and done very well.

Thanks guys. Is it very hard to find parts for these tractors? There's a few things I need that I haven't been able to find. I need the pulley for the rear PTO. And the rear hitch and lift tube.

Great looking T-10! Welcome to GTtalk. Homelites are great tractors. As was suggested the manuals section have the adjustment methods. More pictures if you can. Never enough pics of GTs and especially Homelite.                                                                                                                                              Roger
