Sean, I put the most effort into the mechanical part first,engine,trans,brakes ect...Then use it for awhile before I get into the cosmetic part.In the mean time I hunt down everything I know I will need on the cosmetic end.I do this due problems that might arise and ya already have it all painted and assembled then have to pull it apart and then scratch everything no matter how careful you are. My $.02 worth Good Luck! Justin NY

I've been restoring antique cars and trucks for myself and my customers for over 33 years, and the first thing you want to do before you pick up a wrench is take a ride to the supermarket and pick yourself up a few different size ziplock bags to put the parts your taking off in them and mark em' where they came off from. This way later down the road as you start to reassemble your tractor, you'll know what goes where because they were marked. I still do that to this day! (helps my lousy memory too) I did that when I restored my B also. If you've taken off some parts that need replacing, put an "X" on the bag so during your resto, you can chase what you need whether it's bolts, nuts, or whatever. Also, buy yourself a can of PB Blaster rust buster. It makes the job go a little easier.The main thing is have a lot of fun!! And if ya need help, ask your questions on this board or the Allis site. The folks that are on these boards are super! You couldn't put all the knowledge that these folks have in a book! Enjoy!

Today's Featured Article - Gettin My Old Tractor Home - by Clayton Sweeney. My name is Clayton Sweeney. I am from Southern Maryland in a small town called Lothian. I am 20 and my father and I are the proud owner of a 1954 Allis Chalmers WD-45. When I was 18, I dated a girl in the next county over. Her family are tobacco farmers. It was a cold Thanksgiving evening, and we were going up to her Grandparents house. As we passed one of their barns, I noticed something orange in the corner of my eye in this old shed. It was pretty dark and I asked what it was ... [Read Article]
