Thanks, I will give it a shot. This afternoon I did get the 4th brake pin out and the brake shoe out of the right side.

I am not sure what I will do next. Both rear wheels are off and there was a considerable oil leak by the hubs of both back tires. I assume there are seals there that are bad. I do have the part and service manuals.

Also, I need to check and see if the clutch is stuck. I have read the manual to see what is needed there.

I suppose before I go too much further I really need to see how bad the engine is. It still will not turn over via the crank.

Thanks for all the help and further thoughts are alwasy welcome. I am not an experienced mechanic and most of my other tractors are Farmall"s. So, I still have lots to learn about working on this Allis C. It is too good of a tractor to junk it out.

It does appear there are lots of places for things to get into (rubber boot on the shifting level; couple holes in the brake area). Looks like it is a tractor that should never have been parked outside.

Also, over the years it was outside, some one stole the carb and the magneto. I do have replacements but not sure how good they are.

Just to let you know I have 2 1946 AC-C parts tractors here and one I use from time to time. These are wet sleeve engines so many times after sitting as long time the sleeve seals like to leak

Been in your area, but probably 40+ years ago.

Ya know how that is. I have been all over the U.S. from the east coast to the all the way west to AZ and as far south as Texas and as far north as MN. Now if you want to go out of the U.S. then that gets a whole lot wider as in north to the Arctic circle or as far east as Egypt
