In Reply to: '51 Allis WD Electrical- Beginner Question posted by Matt McCoy on June 28, 1998 at 14:15:09:

: Rebuilt my WD awhile back.
: Always a real hard-starter, but now can't get it to turn over.
: Have a new battery, rebuilt starter, good spark...
: Won't turn over. Stupid question... is this tractor a positive ground?
: Where do I get some good technical specs? Tx for your help!!!

Matt, can you pull it off? Can you turn it with a hand crank? Have you had any luck with it since the rebuild or was it this way right afterwards? If you can turn it with reasonable effort with the hand crank, or it can be pulled off, the electrical system shouldn't have any trouble with it if it's OK. The tractor is a positive ground, by the way, as most Allis-Chalmers were. Does the starter spin good and strong when it's off the tractor but hooked to the batter? Are all your cable connections good, tight and corrosion free? Bunch of questions I know, but they are things which would need checking. Is the motor locked, or is it just hard to turn? Holler if I can help. Have a good day. John
