I am new to antique combines but not new to combines as I run on a regular basis. I am wanting to get a combine for a couple acres of wheat or grain instead of summerfallowing large garden plot.I was seeking a combine project that had a straight cut header as I do not want a swather. I am in an area with not very many old combines but I have found these two:

Allis Chalmers All Crop - PTO drive with pick up and Reel which is not currently on as owner was using a swather. The comebine was used 3 years ago on 5 acres. The older gentleman kept it up but does need some TLC. The reel was beat up really bad and the slates and wood arms have been busted off many years ago.

Gleaner Baldwin E self propelled combine with a straigh cut header and melroe pick up. The combine is parked in need of repair. It was bought, fixed up some ( bearings feeder house) and ran for 1hr in wheat with the pick up and the clutch gave out. The engine needs a fuel lift pump or an electric pump. The cluth is was told by the owner was available online for a couple hundred from a wrecker. The tires hold air and the combine is complete but well used - came from a research station way back when

The price for these machines would be about the same, $500

My question is which machine if fixed up would be the better combine considering im working in 1-2 acrs plots?

are there sites dedicated to allcrop combines? reproduced parts? manuals? how do i tell which model this unit is?

Are there wreckers or reproduction part suppliers who would have parts for the gleaner combine

I have a couple of tractors, would my farmall H run the all crop?
