What is it?

I'm new to this site. I've been hanging out with the boys on the Ford N page. Been working on a 1952 8N. I have a Allis That was my grandfathers. He bought it new so I'm told. Was in storage for over 15 years. Put gas in it and it fired right up. Found out it was parked for a bad water pump. This tractor is tricycle with 3 speed (I think) and a sort of bench seat with levers on each side to raise and lower cultivator bars under the belly. There is a small hydraulic cylinder on the rear with a bar of cultivators. It does not have a three point hitch and has an overhead valve engine. It has a PTO shaft and wheel for belt driven implements. Its kind of small. Has 10-24 tires and has lots of clearence underneath. Basically, it looks like the engine bolts onto a long tube. I was just trying to get an idea of what model it is. In the absence of a serial number, can anyone help?

Oh I intend on keeping it. After all, it was my grandfathers. I was just wondering if I could get a little work out of it. I was delighted to learn that you can adapt these tractors to the 3 point hitch.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and read the "online book: the little AC's" I found it very interesting.There is also a photo gallery that may have some photos.

That is definately some interesting reading. It's encouraging to know that you can adapt this tractor to use some of today's implements. I might have to sell the N and go to work on the C.

It is a model "C" . The serial # is located next to the gear shift and will start with C******.

Give us the serial # and we can tell you what the year is.

"C" it is! I'll have to look at those numbers. Is this tractor good for anything. I mean, can it work, say in a garden. Can it be adapted to a three point hitch set-up and is it capable of pulling a plow. Looks like it was basically set up for cultivation with sweeps.

If it has hydraulics and the original draw bar, yes, it can be adapted to a 3-point hitch system.

I just put a Worksaver (www.worksaver.com) 3-point hitch on my A-C Model B, which is a narrow, 1 row version of your Model C. It fits great, was easily installed, works great, good installation manual, and was of good quality. Cost was about $525 through my local dealer. This is not cheap, but it allows me to use all of my 3-point hitch implements that I already have for my Kubota.

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
