Hi, I am looking at a wd45 that has been sitting. I haven"t owned an allis product before, so i"m not sure what I should be looking for as common wear items on this tractor. What should I be looking for? Thanks

Try to find an Allis guy locally to go with you to look at it. His experience and the extra set of eyes will be well worth buying him lunch!

Be sure the engine is not stuck. The muffler on these tractors sits inside the manifold. Hence, rainwater on the outside of the muffler runs into the manifold and into the engine.

If you have a bad back, do not buy it. They are hard on the back to ride. I couldn't ride mine for 30 minutes and my back was killing me.

First off make sure it is a WD45 not a WC or WD. All 3 pretty much look the same at 50 feet. WD45 will have a curved shifter and the engine will not have a bolt on side plate on the right side of the engine. The WD engine will have a bolt on plate that covers almost the whole right side of the engine. The early WD have a straight shifter but the late ones had the curved shifter. Of course getting the serial number and match them up is a good idea since it could well be a mutt since either engine fits either tractor. Common to see WD45 decals on the WD tractors

Check the hand clutch and make sure it stays in gear when driving.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
