I need your help. I have a WD-45 (gas) with a narrow front end, PTO and 3-pt hitch which has been in storage for approx 4 years and has not been started during this time. What should I do to get it started with minimal engine damage? What fluids should be changed? Should I try to inject some lubricant into the cylinders? What are the fluid capacities for oil and transmission/hydralic? What oil type is recomended? What might cause the 3 pt hitch to rise and fall on its own during operation with a bush hog? Is it possible to convert to a wide front end? I know this is a lot of questions, but I need serious help.

I don't know the fluid levels, but I just fill mine until it shows full on the dip stick. As for starting it, I'm sure that by now you have started it. If not, just pour a little brake fluid into each cylender and let sit for about a week. Try to pull the tractor in high gear, but don't force anything. If it doesn't turn over easley, stop. You may have to tear it down. You have a real gem there and I'd hate to see you do anything to dammage it. As for the three point going up and down, without seeing the tractor, I'd say that you may have a valve problem. If it moves, the pump is most likley ok.

I would clean out the carburator and the gas tank should be flushed as well. (flush the gas tank with a little clean gas). It wouldn't hurt to take off the valve cover and make sure none of the valves are stuck open. Lube the valve stems up with some light oil. change the oil in the engine and use 10w-30 detergent oil. Non-detergent oil will allow carbon build ups to occur in the engine. clean off the plugs and it should be ready to go.
hope I could be of some help

Dear, David I would put a small amount of marvel mystery oil
in each cylinder to ensure top cylinder lubrication.next you should probably change the oil "I like to use a good 30wt. non-detergent oil"
give her a fresh tank of gas,clean off the plugs
and give it a shot.I have several troubleshooting
books on Allis-chalmers.I will try to find this info.
and send it to you in another reply.you can e-mail me at rizzutto@eatel.net

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
