Bought my first Allis tractor. I don't even know the year of it. Tractor did have an older restore done on it. It ran good the night before after putting a Case Mag on it. Come sale day they couldn't get it to start so it may need a tune up on it. I beleive they put the Allis mag back on it. Am looking forward to getting it home. For 700.00 I think I bought the tires and they threw in the tractor. Will try to attach a picture. Any one have any tune up ideas please let me know.

Caseman, If you need any tune-up parts for your new WC, drop us a line. We have lot's of parts for Fairbanks mags. BTW, quite a few WC's came with a Fairbanks "K" series mag. (One piece cap) Although the "J" or "X" series Fairbanks will replace the FM4B "K" series mags. They have a two piece cap & lower cover. Be happy to help ya out!

It is a styled WC. Not an RC, because they had a C engine, which sat back farther from the front end. Not a WD,because of everything between the gas tank and the seat. Seat has holes in it, and a backrest------granted, that can be changed, but the WD shift lever and battery box would be visible. Hitch is also a WC. Centers of the rear wheels are WC, WD had power shift wheels, and could not interchange because of the bolt pattern. WD would have hydraulic and throttle levers by steering wheel. Your serial number is on a flat surface near the top of the pumpkin, and it will begin with 'WC'.

Manifold looks like all fuel which could be WC or WD. If it looks exceptionally long from radiator shroud to front end of tractor then RC. My WD-45 measures 8" which will be the same for a WD and probably for the WC. Best bet is http://people.clemson.edu/~wsmth/ACSN.htm-- for the SN location.

For what it is worth I vote with the guys about it being a WC.

Thanks for all the comments. I went to look at the tractors on the sale bill about a week before the sale. The sale bill had it listed as a WC. I was mainly interested in the Farmall and IH tractors that were there. I took pictures of most of the tractors that were there. I had placed several bids with a friend hoping to get a Mccormick WR-9. Most of the red tractors went for good money I thought. There were around 25 different tractors there. They had 3 AC's there, a B, WD (radiator out but all parts there), and the WC according to the sale bill. After looking at all the tractors the B and the WC drew me to them. I admitt I never thought I would get them at my bid price. I beleive the B brought 2600.00, WD 800.00 and then the WC for 700.00. Since it was later I decided to put a bid on the WC I never looked for a model and serial number. I should have the tractors (biught a parts DC for 75.00)home next week I'll post the model and serial numbers. Will try to get another picture without all the dust also. Thanks again

From the steering shaft support and round rear end center it is a WC or RC. The engine and radiator look a little small, the way a RC would, but then it could be the angle of the picture. I guess I go with WC. As was said, check out the center of the rear end above the big round plug on the back, number is there. Your tractor looks to be in good condition and complete, fenders, drawbar, etc. Hang out here, ask questions, get a reprint of AC manuals, owners and repair and learn a lot you should know. And enjoy your tractor, WCs were good basic tractors.

Looks like a WD to me. Built from 1948 to 50 something. I can't see clearly in the picture but I can not see hand brakes. Hand brakes = WC foot brakes = WD No matter it's a good buy!! Only early WD's had mags.

looks like a WD model. built about 1950. I am surely no expert the WD or 45. Look at the rear axle by the left brake cover. should be a serial number. post and the guyus can help you. nice tractor.

I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
