So, I just bought an 1938 Allis B. I was wondering if someone had any tips what to watch out for during my restoration. Or if someone has any tricks to make the job go easier. Are the B's prone to any sort of problems (i.e. cracked blocks, cracked pto casing, trany poblems, etc.)

I am trying to get as much info about this old girl as I can, so please share away.

Start with a Plan. Buy a good service manual.What are your objectives, what do you want to Invest--(adds up quick) maybe come up with a inventory list of parts needed with cost associated to parts. Remember, you will never, ever be completely done. Good luck, ask questions,take your time, Grasshopper Jim

If you want to go over to my pictures in fotki at the link below and poke around you will find all sorts of stuff.

(Allis Chalmers Engine Building) has several albums and on down I have pictures of a 1938 B that I rebuilt.

Holler if you have specific questions.

2 most common problems I know of is the sleeve seals go bad over time and need to be replaced and most engines will have cracks between the sleeves in the block which as long as not real big are just there and not a real problem

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say?
