For the past 15 years I've flogged an Allis B with a 6' Woods belly mower---it's really earned my respect. The clutch has always been a little weak plus the rear main sees to it that it's lubed to boot. For the past several years I've been contemplating a clutch job.
Well a couple days ago I hauled in a $300 B which seems to have a nice motor and metal but some tranny noise and at least a bad outboard bearing on the bull pinion. I borrowed an I&T manual from my neighbor and think I'm capable of doing a complete rebuild of the drive train. The I&T manual covers several Allis models, is there a manual that covers just the B and is more complete? Other than a few bearings and seals there doesn't appear to be much to replace---couldn't be too expensive could it?
Allis B's don't seem to have much value and I don't have much use for two B's. If one could be used to mow and plow a 150' driveway maybe I could use it to replace the kids 1450 cub that I'm getting sick of constantly working on. What could I expect to wrap up in some kind of blade and a Woods 6' belly mower?

I loved my fathers "B". Like others have said, it could do most anything, on a small scale. I still have harrows, plows, tag along mower etc. The original tractor met its end at my brother in laws hands when he blew the engine, and then sold the tractor for scrap. As for snowplowing, there was a set up my father made that attached to the cultivators with a small "V" plow in front. It didn't work real well in deep snow however. Someday I intend to find another one. (just so I can use all the accessories you understand.)

Anything you can do with a tractor just on a small scale. You can add on hydraulics if it doesn't have the pump. You can add a three-point hitch. You can pull anything reasonable behind it.

The neighbor that lived across the road from us when I grew up farmed 40 acres with a B for as many years as he was able to farm. The had chickens, hogs and milked cows. They made the hay loose and pulled a hay loader behind the wagon. All of his equipment was horse drawn with the poles cut off except for the tractor, plow and cultivators. So they plowed, fit the ground, planted, mowed hay, took it in, hauled manure. Another neighbor that farmed with a WC picked his corn and combined his wheat and oats. Never saw him plant beans.

Many many things that they can do. Rake hay, sickle mower, plow and disk a garden plow snow if you have the correct set up. Allis built a front lift for them just for a snow plow but few know about them and fewer have them. I built one years ago from pictures I was set from a guy on this very site

One built like the one I have could well be fixed up to fit many of the Allis tractors so I don't see why you could not build one like I have. My e-mail is open so just send me and e-mail and I'll send you the pictures and if you want after doing that I can even measure things

I plow, disc, harrow, spread manure, brush hog, pull a cultipacker, pull a wagon to haul wood, water stock, pick rocks, and tend fence. Unless you can fabricate a blade system you'll also need a three point hitch (about $400 purchased).

they are very easy to work on.. transmisions and final drives need bearings and seals to stop leaks and noise. not hard, but expecnsive for bearings... motor is not difficult either, i hone and put in rings, clean cranka nd cam, reuse bearings and reshim. i grind my own valves and lap into the head... i have 7 model B. Two have 3 point hitches and i use a blade and plow on one, and a heavy two point disc (no upper line) on the other. I have one with a Woods 59 mower deck, one with a Bolten 72 inch belly mower (chopper), and one with a side sickel mower for cutting the sides of the roads. also have a read dirt scoop that fits 3 point and can carry about 400 pounds... all very handy. have a couple wagons they pull around also.
