I recently purchased what I believe to be a 1962 snap-coupler Allis planter (2-row) for restoration. The planter has cream colored, steel seed boxes and fiberglass (cream colored) fertilizer boxes. All boxes have the newer A/C decal shaped like a large A. My question to anyone who may know is: How was the fertilizer delivered from the boxes to the soil? Was is simply dropped down the rubber tube after the seed was dropped? Also, who knows where parts for Allis planters can be had? Does the year sound like it matches the description? Thanks in advance for any help!

I might be giving you misleading information here, but here's how the one worked that I used on the farm 35 years ago. This unit I will describe was older than yours. It was orange and had the AC 'star' emblem on it. So your mileage may vary.

The unit I used had two boxes, of course. The first box had the seed, and dropped through a flexible tube into the furrow opener/runner. This tube was made of metal, but we eventually replaced the metal tubes with rubber ones. I think they were TSC specials.

The second box dispensed the fertilizer, of course. The fertilizer dropped through a tube into a second 'runner'. This runner was attached to to first runner, if my old mind can remember correctly. It was about four inches long and had a 'splitter' in the center of it. This splitter was nothing much more than a piece of angle iron. The purpose seemed to be that of diverting the fertilizer to the sides of the seeds. The fertilizer went into the same furrow as the seed, but not directly on the seed.
