Hello allis fans...i just bought my first allis "B" i have had a lot of tractors all my life from john deere (as you can tell by my email) to allis wd45"s to farmall...as you know the price of gas is getting high so i wanted a small tractor to mow 1.5 miles of grass road on our property up in northern mn. this one is a 1938 with as woods L59 under it...
tin is 99% and the engine is tight and sounds great...the only problem that i have encountered is when you shift into 1st or second, very fast it gets caught in between gears and you have to pull the cover off and fix...if you shift real slow then it seems to work fine...another member "old" told me it was possibly the fork in the shifting housing...any other ideas what it might be..."old" has been very helpful and has a lot of knowledge on tractors. also i would like to restore this "B" and just would like to know where do i get most of my parts like, tires, seat,
carb kit, muffler, setiment bowl, wire harness, temp gauge, etc.all the items one needs to do a top restoration. i live 30 miles from orange spectacular in hutchinson, mn. so hope to see some of you fellows there. i will post a pic of my allis when i get a chance...

thanks for your help in advance. Gary

Another cause could be that the ball on the end of the gear shift lever is worn. Should be 5/8 in. in dia.

Carb kit a O'Reilly's auto parts store should have. A muffler Valu-bilt has and they have the correct under the hood type. From what you say if you shift fast it locks up that says worn shifter to me and it is slipping out of the rails. So I guess you got a good buy on it right?? I do have the parts for a worn rail problem here in one of the 2 Cs I have for parts

He need3 a different (good) side cover most likely. The shifter stick could be bad also is someone used a pipe on it or something. I have pictures of the side covers somewhere one is bad and one is good. Not sure what album they are in.

The most likely cause of the shifter broblem is a worn bracket on the inside of the shifter cover. The stamped steel bracket controles how far the shift lever can move.
The bracket is on the cover with 2 rivets. What I do is drill off the rivets and weld up the worn areas, file to smooth it out, and reattatch it with bolts.
