Hi there, well I am now an Allis Chalmers owner. This old tractor has been sitting for 8yrs in a Shed. The tractor did run before being parked. I don't know what she is worth but I paid $200 for her. The front tires need replacing and the back tires are used but filled up with air just like they should. The engine is stuck, but all the parts are there and she has the mounting brackets for a cultivator since that was what her last duty was on the farm. There are some things about her I need to have cleared up. She has a spin on oil filter is that correct for this tractor? She also has clam shell fenders, is this also correct for this tractor? The serial number on the pumpkin is WC44132 which comes out to be in 1936. Also the tractor was painted just 2yrs prior to not being used so she has a good paint job, and the body has no rust, but a couple of dings. Oh one more thing, should the exhaust go thru the hood? All the WC models I have seen in the 30's looks like the hood is solid and the exhaust goes off to the side. I wonder if someone made a exhaust hole in the hood when they shouldn't have. Thanks to those who respond back.

WC44132 is a 1937, (1937=31784-60789) unstyled tractor, with flattop fenders, not clamshell, and the exhaust would go out at an angle from the manifold, not through the hood. The spin on filter is correct, and the front wheels are either spoke or six-hole solid wheels.

Clam shell fenders to me are the same style as on the later WC and WD tractors. Yours should have fenders like a UC which are much larger and primitive looking. Also the exhaust shouldn't go through the hood but you need the correct manifold which shoots it out the side.

Absolutely right-on the fenders and the exhaust system. Just bought a manifold for my 1937- they are hard to come by since so many were rerouted straight up through the hood. And "clamshell fenders" refer to the curved ones on sytled WC and WD, WD45. Flattops go on the unstyled WC, like the UC, etc. The pictures in Swinford's book prove it, as well as the serial number references.

the spin on filter is correct, and so are the clamshell fenders. $200!! Wish I could find a WC that cheap, jeez. the muffler should exit through the hood, but it could also go out the side, whichever you prefer. With a little work, she'll make a nice tractor!!
