I have just purchased a Allis Chalmers model C that is a basket-case and I have a few questions. First, were the blocks the same for all of the model C's? Mine has a large patch were it must have thrown a rod some time in the past.
Where is the serial number plate located, or is it a number stamped on a casting somewhere?
This tractor has a hydraulic pump mounted as part of the rear belt pulley / PTO assembly, my guess is that this is not a "live" hydraulics? This tractor also comes with a mower, culivators, and a two-way plow. I see a small hydraulic cylinder mounted on the right side of the tractor where the seat area is and it looks like there is a place for one on the left side as well, Is this for the plow lift and are there two control valves to work the cylinders seperatly?
And last, are the manuals sold on this site from Jen-Sales?
I hope to have this tractor running to cut some hay this summer and it looks like it's going to be a busy spring!
Thanks for any information anyone can send me, Eric Perry.

I just completed a full restoration on my 1947 Model C last fall. If you have questions, I'll be glad to help out any way I can. Just let me know.

I have a C and i put new brakes on it and they don"t seem to work real well. the new ones are hard as to the old ones were a soft Belt like material. Do you know where i could get some of that soft belt like Material for my brakes or do i have another problem. Thanks for you time, Steve.

the brake material is relatively hard, just like a car drum brake. you need to adjust the screws on the rear cam so you have about 1.5 inch of pedal movement. if they still dont work real well, then the drums are probably scored bad, or oily. the brakes were not ment to stop on a dime, just to slow you down. you might want to compare to someone else B,C,CA to see how it works.

Hi Eric! Welcome to the C Allis! They are a fine little tractor. The engines are almost the same thru the entire series.They are also mostly interchangable with the engine that is in the B and the CA.There are a few differences in the early and later engines such as no starter so you have to watch! The serial number is stamped next to the gear shifter. The engine number is stamped on the block.
The hydraulics on a C are not live and of limited capacity. A second cylinder can be added for the plow. There is a selector valve that switches cylinders.
Let me know the S/N of yours and I will look up more info for you.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
