Can anyone recommend a book that details the changes from Series I, II, III and IV? I know they are largely based on a WD45.

It would be helpful when going to auctions to know what I would and would not be getting.

I assume parts support from AGCO for these tractors has dropped off since they dropped the Allis Chalmers brand. Overhaul parts don't concern me, they are advertised everywhere. Am thinging about stuff like transmission parts.

Swinford's book has a pretty good amount of info, on the subject, too. As far as parts support, from my experience, with D series tractors, Agco still has parts. Talk to Sandy Lake Equipment, Western PA, a good dealer makes all the difference.

FYI, the original price on the cover of Dean"s book was $19.95. Does detail all four D17 series.

Terry Dean has a great book detailing the serial number changes for all the AC tractors. "Allis-Chalmers Farm Tractors and Crawlers" The ISBN 13 number is 9780760307700. Copy and paste that into Amazon or eBay and you'll find a list of them. Not cheap anymore but if you intend on collecting more than one model of AC tractor then it's worth it. Norm Swinford also has 2 books out that cover AC stuff. One is only tractors and one is all the AC farm equipment.

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? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
