Report to Moderator

Does anyone have any info. about Allis Chalmer 1952 CA with a single front wheel? I've seen several narrow fronts with 2 wheels but not many with 1. I'm probably going to buy it ,the engine is stuck but other than that it's in good cond. I'm just not sure if it would be worth the time and effort and $$ it would take to get it running.The asking price is $500. If anyone can tell me a little more about this tractor I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Doug

The CA is a great little tractor, but it is fairly weak to try to do alot with. I love them though. My Gradfather owned one for years, and my father owns it now. Every summer I still use ours to rake hay with, and we've put a three point on the tractor, so we can do alittle more with it. Parts are very expensive through the dealerships. I ran across a nice CA with regular tricycle front end, but have not made attempts to buy it due to the block being cracked. It's realy a shame to let it go to waiste, but it just cost too much to fix. WD 45's aren't that much bigger, are really just as handy, Personally I think that's what I'd look for. Good Luck though, Greg H.

500.00 would be an OK price if you can do the overhaul at home. If you take it to a dealer get it overhauled it will most likely cost over 2000.00 You might get a stuck engine to run if a bearing has not seased up, but if it's not a bearing it will be rust and a rusted ring won't expand. You may already know all this but if you didn't it's something to think about. I have three B & C stuck engines tore down at the present time.

The CA usually comes with a wide front on it so a single front is a little out of the ordinary. For 1950 the CA replaced the model C with a little more power and more options. The CA is a pint sized WD in that it has all of the same features except power steering. The traction booster system makes this a great machine to plow with. 3 point kits are available. If the tires are good then $500 sounds ok, but maybe I would try to haggle a bit. Hope this helps, Brian.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
