Hey Fellow Parts Guys- 300 & 400 series AC's

Recommended Posts

Any of you have any luck selling 300/400 series chasis parts? I paid $200 for the last one and lost my behind trying to sell parts off it. Got another to look at this weekend for $100. More pallatable, but I'm still skeptical. Being its a 416H the engine is what I'm buying basically, thoiugh its not running. From the description it may have threw a rod. If so. not so interested in paying that much even. Any of you do well with these models?

Hmmm... This could be news to someone looking for parts:). I brought home my 1st Allis a few weeks ago in hopes of saving it. It has many issues and will need lots of attention. Its a 310 D and I know absolutely nothing about it. It ranks as the largest and heaviest in my fleet of 23. I was told 300/400s are oddballs and figure it wont be easy locating stuff but I will take any lead I can get. I PMed Graham earlier today about his ads but havent heard back yet. I'm in no hurry as its far down the list of things to do but everytime I look at it I find something else it needs. Being a B/S guy, the Kohler will be new adventure. I do imagine it will be easier to restore it than finding decals for my 515 and 728s. - Joe

Sam, I've only ever had 2 of them. Got rid of both as complete units. I've never had a request for any parts for them that I can recall, only attachments, or attachment parts.

Sam it's about the same way here in Kentucky. I've got one guy locally that has a 410 I could move a few parts to but that's it. All the other Allis' I see are either variations of the B series or the 700/900 units,and I rarely let parts for those leave my hands till I get all my tractors running.

I'm watching eBay and everything is looking cheaper; except the really rare is still up. Never bothered with the 300/400's myself, don't like the look. I'm not in this for the biz, just want parts for my machines and trade/sell off the other parts. My guess is that more people are leaving this hobby; after some of the noise I've been hearing, I don't blame them. As for me ... I've got everything I need. Except the dual wheel adapters and I know who's gonna make me a set. Would buy a generator or a weed chopper if they came around; not seen any lately. Rare! BTW: Sold my 725 for $250, wanted to keep it, but needed to get some money.
