Hello I just joined this site. I have been watching and reading for a while so decided to join. I have been collecting and restoring antique farm equipment since I was 15, many years ago. I got the garden tractor bug a couple years ago and restored with my son a 1957 Wheel Horse RJ. I just bought an Allis B-10 and plan on making a narrow front end out of it. When I saw the one TractorMike did I fell in love with it. The B-10 I bought has no hood or grill and the motor is missing the carb and starter/generator. It does have a 42" deck but I don't plan on using it.
One thing I would like to know is how to date it. I see a tag behind the seat but it has been painted over and when I try to take the paint off it takes the top of the decal off also. Any other way to tell what the serial and date is?
My family was in the farm implement buisness from the 30's until the late 1980's. We sold Massey Ferguson and Allis Chalmers along with Wheel Horse. (sorry no parts left)
I wish we had not sent all those parts back when we closed but then how would I have know I would be doing this.
So if anyone has a spare hood and grill drop me a line. I look forward to all the information I can get from some great restorers.

Welcome to GTTalk Dan. I can't help with the Allis parts. I hope you can find what you are looking for. It sounds like an interesting project.

If it is the original engine, you should be able to look at the engine numbers and date it from that. Here's a link on how to read the numbers on the engine. Hope this helps.

Very nice collection of garage fillers. I see pumps, shellers, very cool cars ( love the downhill racer ), and the tractors looks very nice too. The RJ looks happy also. One Question, the one on the far right, is that a McCormick ___ or a Massey 25?

The one on the right is a 1928 Wallis 20/30. This my favorite tractor. It took me eight years to complete it. A tree had grown up around it and encircled the tractor. Very difficult to remove a tractor from a tree.

I picked up a hood and grill but it is missing the chrome side pieces. Are they around or will I have to make them?
I found a starter and generator, now all I need is a carb.
