What do I really have?

I grew up helping my dad farm with what we have always thought to be a Allis Chalmers "C". Every picture I look at of the "C" tractors doesn't really look like ours. They are simoler, but not exact. THe one we have has hand and foot brakes, and the rear wheel are rubber but they do not have the curved bars to hold them in place, they have lugs on the inside of the wheels with tapered spacers behind the bolt heads. At one time it had cultivators that you drove into and there was a mechanical lift system to pick them up. There are no hydrolics at all. It has a crank as well as 6 volt started. To activate the starter there was a wire rod that came up under and behind the strearing wheel along with a second simoler rod for the choke. The throtel control sets flat and is a flat bar on a cast half moon with notches in it. It also has a high and low range gear box. It also has power take off but it is not a live power take off. It has head lights that are mounted on the side of the hood at the back, next to the opperator. It came with a 2 bottom tag a long plow and the cultivators. Is this really a "C" or is it somehting else? We never had to do much work on it and dad bought it used when I was about two so I really don't know much about it other than how to run it.

You could also have an RC. It looks very much like a WC, but has the same engine as the C, the 125 cubic inch 4 cyl. The S/N would be in the center of the rear axle on a raised pad, just above the round "freeze" plug. The WC and RC have frame rails on either side of the engine and there is a sheetmetal cover that covers the area between the top of the pedestal and the radiator grille. The RC has a slightly deeper "front porch" where this sheetmetal cover is than the WC. They both look similar to the WD and WD45, but the WC and RC had hand brakes originally. The foot brakes you describe were an add-on that was installed later. Of course, the original B had hand brakes too, but the same kind of add-on was available for them too. Check out the serial number and let us know what you find. - Phil

If it's a B or C, the serial # will be stamped in the metal in front of the shift lever and will begin with a B or C. Some of the controls, the placement of the lights and the mechanical lift sound like a WC, as does your description of the rear wheels. If it's a WC, the Serial # will be on the back part of the differential or "pumpkin" between the rear wheels and will begin with "WC#####". Wherever the serial # is, sometimes you have to clean some dirt, grease, oil or paint off to read it clearly. Good luck! RC

sounds like a "B" or a "C". If it has a narrow front axle it is a "C" IF it is wide, it could be either, but normally a "B". Look by the transmission shift lever and see teh stamped number in the case. Should start with a "C" and the other numbers will tell you the year made by looking at the serial number list link at the left of this page. The hi-lo transmission I have heard was a option on the C, but i have only seen one in a book. You could have a very rare animal. Hydraulics was an option on the earlier models.. Write back and tell use what your serial number says.
