1968 Allis Chalmers B-110

Well I finally was able to buy my uncles old Allis B110. I have wanted it ever since I saw it and he brought up last week about selling it and I told him to name his price and I will buy it. So $200. later it sits in my shed now. brought it home today. It came with a mower deck and plow. It also came with the tarctor manual. It runs drives mows and plows fine as he used it up till last year to mow the yard, when he put it away and has been sitting in the back of his shed. His dad recently moved out of there house and he split up items he had to his kids so my uncle got a newer ariens tractor, and the allis was making it hard to fit 3 tractors in his not so big shed so thats why he asked if i was interested in it. We dug the other tractors out I went back and turne the key and she fired right up!!

1964 Bolens 900

Just wanted to give yous and update on this thing. If you guys have seen any of my videos on youtube, I swapped in a 10hp Briggs from a 1976 Bolens G10 into the 900 and because the starter was bad and there was no solenoid I ended up using some parts I had to make it a pull start. Well yesterday I ended up going to the junkyard and buying a starter and some solenoids for her. I then today made up some battery cables, put in the one solenoid, and attached the strater and she fired right up using the key!!! Hopefully no more pull starting!!!

Heres Some Pics of the Allis and Bolens......Enjoy!!!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I took the wheel weights off and cleaned her up some today....also fixed a problem with it that would make it stop moving while in gear....turned out to be a spring that was put in the wrong location by me last year when the spring fell off and we didnt know exactly where it went...atleast its fixed now....

Nice work on the 900. I always loved the look of the 900 and 1000 with the wider front tires and fiberglass fender.

Yeah I agree with you. The 800,900, and 1000 models are probably my favorites out of the tubefrmes
