  • Condition at Time of Purchase 6/16/07 Motor has no spark, does not run as advertised. seller threw in extra non running 16 hp motor to soften blow. front tires mis-matched 40%, rears 40% Good to excellent sheet metal only minor rust under battery box and minor dents in seat pan. Horrible repaint... Looks like IH red. Includes belly mower with no welds but a few rust holes, but arbors are tight. Close examination of tractor shows many odd screws bolts and other abuses no machine should have to endure.
  • Condition Now As of 8/24/07, Have spent $100. on tractor. Converted to battery ignition using B.W. #E40P coil, replaced ignition switch with new B.W. #CS7 4 post switch designed for battery ignition. Made and installed new, separately fused, wiring harness for ignition and lights. Replaced inoperable light switch with "on/off/on" three pole toggle to operate headlamps and work light independently. Installed OEM headlight pods to replace "bug eyes" using 1156 bulbs and reflectors made from coke cans. Still need to repair generator. Changed oil in engine and BGB and lubed. As of August 2007 tractor is repainted and re-badged as Allis Chalmers 700 series. Many more little things to sort out. But tractor earning keep.
