Hi All! To start I am a Minn. Mo. man and need to know a little information on this C Allis. I am helping a friend work on his grandpa's old tractor in my shop and the starter bendix is grinding from time to time on the ring gear. The starter has been rebuilt on it but the teeth on the ring gear are not in the greatest shape. I know that when tractors are shut off the engine always stops in one of two places and that is where the ring gear is worn. What I want to know is can I split the tractor and turn the flywheel one bolt hole or not? Or does the flywheel only bolt up one way do to the timing marks? I know on my minnies that I can can do this when needed but I didn't want to split this first to find out it won't work on this tractor.

I second replacing the gear. The hardest part is getting to the flywheel. The gear is not that expensive, especially when considering the work to replace it.

Thanks a million guys. I was hoping just a quick flywheel turn would do it but oh well. I will see if he wants to remove it then. Thanks a again for the info. and Happy Tractoring!

I've turned a bunch of them a 1/4 turn without a problem. Just mark them, pry them off, heat them up and slip them back on. They've worked for 60+ years, and should work another 60 when turned. Why spend the bucks if you don't have too.

the ring gears are a thin gear that presses onto the fly wheel. As mentioned, they dont cost much. you can buy one on this site. That is best. You can also take the gear off and turn it 90 degrees, but better to buy new. YOu can not turn the flywheel 1 bolt, it is match marked.

Flywheel only bolts one way. New ring gears are not that expensive, maybe $35

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
