I have an allis b tractor and as of yet have done nothing with it other than run it. I'm sorry I can't help with your tractor.
I do have a question in regards to the "overseas" tractors. I have a book that is written with pictures of most tractors from I believe England. They have allis b and c tractors pictured. My question is on the side with the oil filter mounted just above the filter in the sheet metal are three bolts. They are in the shape of a triangle and are holding something under the hood. I do not have them on the tractor I have, or on any one I have seen in the states. I thank you for your time. ED

ed, The bolts in the shape of a triangle are for a gasoline starting tank for the dual fuel (kerosene or distillate) engine. You started the engine on gas and after the engine got up to operating temperature you switched it over to kerosene. I have a 1941 US C that has the dual fuel engine and it still has the hood with the holes for the starting tank. Hope this helps, TractorMike

What did the us do just use the gas only? At the pump price today maybe we should go back to kerosene. ED
