I went over last nite and brought home this tractor. Thank you much for your help on this one. It's in better shape than I remembered and actually ran pretty well for having sat since last fall.

I'm going to clean/rebuild the carb as my first project and I know I need an IT manual but help me cheat a bit here.........

- What is the small needle adjustment at the base of the bowl? That's where the drain plug was on my model C carb but this little fellow is an adjustment. What is a good starting point on this needle?

- And above that on a 45 degree angle is what I know as an air adjustment (again from my model C carb) Is this also true on the WC? And again, what is a good starting point for this adjustment?

- Now; what is this little "secondary" transmission behind the primary transmission? All it seems to do is engage/disengage the rear wheels from the drive train. Is this for work on the belt?

Alright that's enough for now.......Thank you for all your help.....and man am I glad I bought this tractor. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed owning my other ones.

Generally 1 1/2 turns out on those screws should be a good starting point.

Can't help on the carb, but the second shifter does exactly what you say. They had a mechanical cultivator lift on them and if you trip the lever while sitting still, the tractor had to be in gear to raise the cult back up. Rather inconvienent if Jr does that in the barn where moving isn't an option. That lever lets the tractor be in gear to raise the implement, but not move. Get an Allis Chalmers service manual. The back 20 or sopages is full of general carb, mag, engine principals, as well as very detailed directions for servicing the tractor.

Ever see one of the early versions of the power lift? It had notches around the outside casting, and a handle to operate it manually.

From the owners manual about the lever

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
