My first attempt at a tractor restore. These old machines are fun to work on. Now I have created a monster. Was looking at a Belarus 820 that is from the old soviet era. Engine is perfect and everything works but it looks like hell. When I finish this one it will be the Belarus turn. This is a great hobby with practical benefits. I will be using the Allis-Chalmers for general work and the Belarus will be my field tractor. [/img]

The same lever that runs the lift arms. They are NOT separately controlled.

There is only one thing bugging me about this restoration. How was the rear hyd. remote operated? I see a fitting but I can find no valve controlling it.

The rear cylinder will extend once the rear lift arms have fully lifted..

You probably should locate a "Transport Valve", as used on the WD-45 models..it provides the hydraulic connection ( under the drivers seat) and gives additional control for delay for cultivators, etc..

Great Job. One of the best things about restoring a tractor, is that when you are done, you have something very useful and it cost you 20 to 25k less than buying a new one. The way I figure it, you should have enough tractors that you never have to swap implements to do a job ;).
That should be pretty handy with the 3-point on it.

That's pretty much what I do is have a tractor for every implement I use,makes a huge difference the older I get not having to swap up implements.Plus I'll jump on the Oliver 1465 I leave hooked up to the bush hog and go cut for a couple hrs when it wouldn't be worth it if I had to hook and unhook it.The David Brown 780 has been hooked to the same hay rake for 15 years.

Thank you Chaskaduo. The previous owner 30 years back had really looked after it and most of the credit in regard to it's looks belongs to him. According to Dad he used to wipe it down after every use and never idled it for extended periods of time. I only made sure it was stored inside. But mechanically it was not so good
it needed some TLC and some parts. It is a fun machine open station tractors are a different experience as opposed to a tractor with a cab.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
