I was wondering if WC's are "rare", seems its hard to get information on these tractors. Is there a good reference bood available to get information on restoring the Allis's.

Subscribe to Antique Power Magazine or Gas Engines. There are hundreds of ads for all kinds of Allis info including repair manuals, parts books, etc. Also go to Ebay and search for Allis chalmers wc and you will get all kinds of responses.

I dont think they are rare They just arent as popular as the WD because they didnt have all the improvements that the WD had and a lot of people didnt like the idea of hand brakes that were standard till the last couple of years of manufacture You might check for other sites for help with parts and information Carl

A very good book for reference mostly with decals and finish is "Original Allis-Chalmers 1933-1957". By Guy Fay and Andy Kraushaar. This was at my local library.

Hi David,
i've been trying to restore a wc for my son for some time now. seems to be very little knowledge (or maybe just help) available. i have a data book by MBI publishing on allis's. buts its mosly serial numbers and specs. from the lack of information you would think there're rare. there doesn't seem to be any books like you would find on JD, IH or even David browns. maybe there's a nitch some publisher could fill.

Allis-Chalmers built more WC's than any other model of tractor. Over 175,000 were built between 1933 and 1948.

No, I don't think they are rare, just a little older than the B,C,CA,WD series and D series. There are quite a few around here yet anyway. Don't know much about them, but if they are as good as the models mentioned above, they are good!
