I'm new to Allis's and would like info and/or hints on splitting a WD-45. Trans is jumping out of 3rd. Fella I know asked me about it and I'm partial to the RED tractors. After searching archives and coming up empty I thought you guys could help him and I out. Thanks, Mike

When I split my WD to do tranny work all as I did was get some angle iron (1/4" thick 2"x2") and bolt it to both sides of the frame rail at rear by tranny and welded plates to the bottom of the iron so it sat stable on the ground then removed both rear tires, and final drive housings. Then hooked a cherry picker to the tranny/diff housing and un bolted from tourque tube and frame rails and removed.

The 2x2by 1/4 angle is strong enough to support the tractor, but you should have a wider base than the tractor frame. Sounds too tippy if they go straight down below the frame. Most splitting stands are an A-frame design, about five feet wide. Most stands would have casters, so you would block up the rear half of the tractor and roll the front end forward enough to work on the defective component.

Your idea for supporting the frame sounds good. But why not just put a dolly under the transmission and roll it and the rear end of the tractor back at that point?

That would work good also. I guess I was not thinking, I had the cherry picker there so I just used it, but the dolly would work fine too.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
