Allis D15 II... should I buy?

I've never owned a D series tractor, D15 II is very rough, its sat outside for several years, but runs, has an Allis trip loader on it. It would not idle down, the owner said it has a weak govener spring. Most gadges including the tach/hour meter broken. Needs a manifold. Very rusty fenders & hood, grille banged up badly. Tires 14.9x26 not much tread left, but the rims look ok. 3 point hitch, and powersteering... I guess what worries me the most is the engine not idling down, do you think it could be a carb thing or major engine work? What kind of money should I offer this guy? Dad won't loan me that much, he doesn't think its worth it. He wants 1700 w/bushhog, or 1500 without it.
Thanks for any advice!

Well its gone now... dad wouldn't loan me the 700 bucks I needed to get to 1500. He's loaded, and he knows that I would of paid him back at harvest time... I swear he's one of those people that would prefer to give the nursing home all of his money rather than his children... stupid.

This is a good tractor but is sounds like it needs some work. Tin work and fenders are hard to find and only used ones are available anymore. These are known for weak third gears. Check that out but only after the idle is drop or you will go for a wild ride. Go to the agco site on locate their heritage parts dealer near you. Go there and ask if they know of any local repair people. They can give you a good idea of what would take to make this work. Is it your intention to work this or restore it? I'd offer $1000 with the bush hog and see what the response is. If it is really rough, they won't get $1700.

Good Luck,

It sounds to me like it may well be worth the asking price. If you don"t take it, give us the info so someone else can jump on it.

B,C,WD45 are ceonomical tractors that you can get for $1000. If you are looking at a running D series you are over $1500, and this is a series II so you are pushing $2000. if it is any shape at all.

The 160 engine in the series II is hard to come by one that runs good is worth around $1000 by itself.

Sounds like a $750-1000 tractor tops. Bad tires brings it way down. As far as the idle its most likely a govanor problem

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
