Found a couple of Allis Chalmers B1 tractors pretty close to home. Nothing much pops up within 25 miles so I gave a call and brought them home. Not much to look at (especially the parts machine) and I am questioning the $150 I dropped until the owner said a bunch of his other stuff was just going to go for scrap. Stuck in the pile was a Brinly plow. "Just take it." he said. I wasn't going to argue. Now I've gotta make room. My wife said I have to fit a car in the garage for the winter.

I don't think you lost on that deal. Brinly just like it on CL for 125 near here. The Allis units, looks like enough to make one out of. Do either have the lift hitch?

Thanks for the pics!

Those Brinly sleeve hitch plows are pretty rare in these parts. I'd say you got good value for your 150$.

That was a great deal IMO! I especially like the "custom" green tires on the parts machine :poke:
All kidding aside though, You bought the plow and got 2 tractors for $25! Nice score!

That's what I was thinking. Buy 1 plow - get 2 tractors free. The more complete machine was stuck in the ground about 4". I had thought this was why the steering doesn't move but it's still stuck. The parts tractor is the same way. Anyone know if this was a problem with this model? Any other issues or common faults I should be looking for?

Oh, but you just did! It's kind of like those pages in a book that say, "This page intentionally left blank."

Very nice find Jeff. I would start soaking the moving parts with pb blaster. I don't know how the steering column is setup on the Allis garden tractors but I would just start soaking the column and the tie rod ends and hopefully in a couple days you can start working it loose.

Do the engines turn over?
