What is the best combine built by Gleaner during the late 50's early 60's. My neighbor has a 1960 E sitting in one of his fields and is offering to give it to me. I don't know much about Gleaners. I bleed green. But it looks like it might be a challenge to get her running again and I am up to the challenge. He said it has not run in about 10 years. What are some things that would definetly need to be worked on? The tires still look good. Their is still glass on the cab. Any ideas or suggestions would be very helpful at this point.

If you are up the challange, than hay yes, get that dang thing going! And don't be selling that engine for use in any ol' tractors. It's a combine, and it's gonna stay a combine. Combines are real fun in the field, and in shows. The friendly folks in the Combines and Harvesters board may be able to give you some more help.

This is the voice of wisdom, a plumbers son. The scope of needed information is "Hot's on the left, Cold's on the right, and $h!t don't go uphill.

Well, the price is right if he wants to give it to you- and the engine can be used in other Allis tractors. If the lower doors on the elevators were left open to let the water out, that would help to minimize the rust problem developing over the years. Same with the grain tank cleanout door. Belts may be weak by now. Engine may be stuck. Hopefully has AF in the block, not water. Best bet is to get it running, check for dry bearings (get warm quickly). Sounds like a fun project, good luck.

Rust, Rust, Rust. There are so many places for water to sit that I can't imagine there won't be places that are rusted out. I have an F that has always been shedded, runs good and is in pretty decent shape. It's worth about $1500 ona good day. You could put several thousand dollars in parts in the thing, several hundred hours of labor and still not have a viable unit. On the other hand, parts are pretty much available, both used and new. See if you can find out why it was parked and what's it's problems were. Good luck. John
