Long story short, about a month ago a guy put an ad on the local Craigslist here for free barn wood from a barn on his property that fell down. I saw a garden tractor in there in the collapsed barn, just the headlights popping through the rubble basically. Luckily the larger equipment took the brunt of the force of the collapse so the Allis Chalmers held up extremely well. He calls me and tells me I can have the tractor, we work out a price after he pulled it out of the barn and now I have this tractor (I'll be picking it up tomorrow or this weekend). I can see a shifter so I know it's not a hydrostatic drive and I see the manual lift arm, but I don't know (and neither does the owner) if this is a 312, 314, or 316. Can any of you fine folks tell me what model it might be? I don't need this at all since I have so many other projects, but I love old stuff and just had to rescue it.
If anyone is interested in this tractor please let me know. I'd like to see it go to a good home. Thanks.
