D17 Series IV

Relative has a D17 Series IV sitting in the weeds. Says it ran a year or two ago but now the "wiring is burnt". Also says he doesn't think the "hydraulic remote" works (note ever sure what he is talking about there).
I can get it for under $2K. I know very little about tractors in general and next to nothing about Allis Chalmers tractors. I just got my fathers Ferguson TO20 back up and running, but I'd like something with live PTO.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Seems like a fair price if you are able to sort out the wiring yourself. My experience with that is lots more time than expense is required. Even if you have to pay someone to do the wiring, you would probably still be okay at that price. You just need a basic knowledge of 12 volt DC 'electrics'.

Do you have an idea of about how many hours are on it?

No idea on the hours. I doubt my Uncle has any idea either.

I rewired my TO-20 myself using a wiring diagram I got from a gentleman from England. I have already found and printed one for the D17. I'm fairly confident I can do that myself.

Had a chance to look at the D17. Serial # makes it a 1959.

Uncle said he was driving it in March when the wiring caught fire. He pulled it off the drive and it has sat since then. Grabbed the fan belt and the crank turned easily. All the sheet metal is there and straight, although faded and rusty.

Uncle offered it to me for $1800. What are your opinions?

The tractor in the pictures is not a series IV D-17. Series IV were built from 1964 to 1967, with serial numbers 75001 - 89213. The three point is not factory, the hydraulic system of the series IV is a high volume low pressure type with the hydraulic pump at the belt pulley location. The series IV had two or four remote hydraulic couplers, not one. Someone put series IV decals on what looks to be a series 1 tractor. The tractor also has FEL mounting hardware under the rear axles. I would check the front end out before buying as you might have considerable rebuilding to do. Personally, I would stay away from this machine as it looks to be somewhat of a basket case.

Please Post the location if you dont want it, I would like to have a gas unit for the wife to go with my diesel. The hand operated 2 speed clutch is almost indestructable. Dads old series 1 had 10's of thousands of hours on it before the hand clutch wore out. He retired and sold it to a banker in southern Iowa, the guy overhauled everything and the old girl is back in the field on a daily bases.

1st thing I would check is if the motor is "loose", can you turn it? They get water inside and rust cylinders pretty easily. Slowly loosen drain plug(oil pan)not removing it and see if water runs out around threads.

First of all the D17 is a really good tractor, Series IV is sought after. Sitting in the weeds and not running for a couple of years.......well you have to check out the details for yourself, like if water has got into the engine and how much general work it would take to have it running well. I guess in the end it's how much you have to spend before you're done. If possible post some pictures.
