I've been looking for an Allis Chalmers B10 for awhile now (5+ years). Found a forum post on here with a craigslist ad showing a B10 with no reverse gear. I called the owner and he told me everything about it and scheduled to pick it up today. I really have to thank boyscout862 for pointing it out. I was told the tractor has had 1 previous owner before the guy I bought it from. Still original Motor, BGB, and rear end. Has all the original decals and seat. Missing only the center PTO.

Reverse still works. The only issue is that one of the gears in the differential broke

Price: $230USD
Included With Tractor:

  • Disc Harrow
  • Snowplow
  • Tire Chains
  • Wheel weights
  • Mower Deck

EDIT: Added a couple more pictures.

Im very surprised how well this Allis has held up. It's been kept outside under a tarp for the last 15years or so according to the guy I bought it from. He was going to restore it but never did. I wish I had saved the craigslist post, he listed that there was no reverse gear. When I got to his house yesterday afternoon, he then told me that one of the gears in the differential broke and the tractor would "skip" at certain intervals when driving.

That may just be that the belt pulley is worn or the key sheared. Diagnose this one very carefully. Good Luck, Rick

Like boyscout said, diagnose it carefully. Take the drive belt off that's under the seat and turn the drive pulley on the transaxle all the way in both directions. Watch the axle tube and the external differential assembly by the right rear wheel. This will show you how much wear there is in the transaxle. Most of the play usually comes from worn keys or key slots. If worn, it will sort of feel like something is skipping as you drive the tractor. It's noticeable when you go from going uphill to downhill or downhill to uphill.

I investigated the rear end and differential. No horrible noises from the rear end but the differential was grinding and clicking so I tore it apart. Had plenty of grease in it and no water. I found that the main gear attached to the wheel hub is missing multiple teeth and two spacers are broken.

Now i need to lookup the part numbers.

Diff Spacer: Simplicity 2121084SM

Took a week break from being outside. Today I cleaned out the massive mouse nest from motor and under the dash. I also took another picture of the harrow. You can see that the hitch is missing and it has been welded solid. The harrow won't work correctly now.

My good camera is broken. I have to use my basic flip phone for recording. Sorry about the horrible quality.

Does anyone know what the model number is for this disc harrow? I believe the tag is supposed to be on the hitch but that has been cut off many years ago. I would like to find the manual and start working on it. 

EDIT: I forgot to include what i've found about it. From this page i found that it could possibly be a #990206 8-12" Disc Harrow but it looks different.

Sorry but that is not an Allis or Simplicity disk. The OEM disks had a totally different frame. They had wooden gang bearings. Your unit appears to be a much heavier-built unit. Not something I have ever seen before.

No need to be sorry. This is excellent news as it means ill start searching for the correct machine that it works for. Expand my tractor collection. :dancingbanana:
