I have a '41 Allis 'C', and just bought all of the manuals. As I look through the manuals I see references to such things as a radiator shutter, magnito kill switch, lights, fuel filter bowl, etc. My tractor has none of these. Since the manuals don't break out by year, how do I know if my tractor should have these things? I want to put everything back on the tractor that was there when it was new.

You lost me there for a minute, Dick! ' glad you clarified that. Duane, I've never seen a "B" or "C" that did'nt originally have shutters, not to say that they all did have. If your tractor originally had shutters, there will be a hole thru the radiator shell near the top corner on the right side. This is where the shutter control handle protruded thru the radiator shell.

I think the shutters and lights were options. No big deal if they aren't there. As for the fuel bowl, It sounds like someone put in an inline fuel filter and got rid of the bowl. This is a bad idea, cuz the sediment bowl is the first line of defense against water and rust chunks. You should put one back on. The kill switch is just how you turn the tractor off. Mine has a wire coming off the tab on the bottom of the mag and is attached to the 3 position switch which controls the lights and charging rate. On a C, it should be able to put back on, as it's just a ground wire. Good luck. RC

I think that you can tell if sutters came on the tractor if there is four 1/4" holes, above and below each corner of the grill screen. I have one grill with the four holes and three grills that do not. I have no shutters so I'm only guessing.

The four 1/4 in. holes were there for a green canvas radiator cover with heavy wire on each end you then rolled the cover to where you wanted it to expose open radiator for hot or cold, This was the procedure prior to the shutters.

I was wrong, the four holes are for an extra screen that came on combines. The shutters mount on the radiator.
