Restoration of an Allis Chalmers B

It took us nearly 3 years to complete the restoration on our Allis Chalmers Model B, but it is done now. We have restored several of these machines but this one took quite awhile due to family matters and work. We also had to rebuild the engine twice! We thought everything had gone smoothly the first time but when we tried to crank start the engine it would not budge. Foolishly we tried to force it and scored the newly ground crankshaft. That is what happens when you get in too much of a hurry! We got another crankshaft and a gasket set and tore it open again. This time everything came together and after reassembling all of the electrical components it turned right over.

You can imagine the hooting, hollering and clapping in the shop when that shiny 'new' tractor started up and drove out into the barnyard.

The tractor was originally a real basket case. We stripped it down completely, sand blasted, primed and painted every piece on it. We welded together a custom three point hitch for it which is very heavy duty and is performing well.

Restoring the tractor was a family effort - it seems between work and school there is not much time for anything else so we spent some of our 'family time' together in the shop. It takes a bit longer to do things with a small child helping, but he had a great time and has laid claim to two other tractors we have sitting in the yard in need of restoration.

We collect AC tractors and currently have in our collection several Model B & C's, a CA, IB, D14, HD7 Crawler, 816B Backhoe and a couple AC garden tractors. In addition to those we have 3 Farmall's, an H, Super C and a Cub. A Massey-Harris Pony and an Earthmaster tractor complete our collection. Only a few of these are restored, the rest are waiting their turn. Some run and some don't. They will all eventually have their turn as the Family Project. We find it a great way to spend time together.
