Thanks for taking the time to make a page that should help even the greenest of Allis Chalmers owners.

Hi Dick,

I thought it might be useful since there seems to always to be a lot of confusion as to which timing mark to use. Some would say one and others would say the other one. Course if you know everything is correctly timed in the engine and also internal to the mag, you don't need to use either one. But it's best to work step-by-step and follow the book to be sure everything is correct. I can't say I have ever noticed anyone saying you could use either mark, depending on how you do it - therefore the web page. And it's sort of fun to do, as you know from all your helpful photos you post or link to.

One thing I should have done but didn't was show a picture of the drive gear tang recesses when #1 is TDC. If I think of it, the next time I have the mag off I'll add that to the page.

Yup. I use both ways but I mainly use TDC. That was the way I was taught back in the 1950"s. All engines will run timed at TDC. Car Truck or tractor. They can be tuned from there if needed. Both way will get you to the exact same place. I am working on something new you might be interested in. When I am done I will give you a shout.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
