i got this B-10 last year with a blown engine. i towed it in the shop last week and my plan was to rob the hydro lift for my landlord cab tractor and rob the complete rearend for another landlord i have. i tested the hydro lift by sticking a 4ft pole in the rear lift hitch and hanging a complete engine off the end of the pole. i let it sit over night. it did'nt drop at all ^. then after staring at the tractor awhile and remembering i had a complete running engine from a previous b-10 sitting on the shelf, i decided to just drop a engine in this one and park the cab tractor untill spring. im sure glad i saved this one. it ranks right up there with my landlord 2010 witch is my #1 go to tractor{cab tractor}. this Allis will finish out the snow plowing season and prombaly get some garden time in this spring 8D.

looks like a nice '64, "if you did not change the dash." glad you decided to keep this one with that nice grill and emblem. I see you have the yellow dust cap covers as well.

Perry, looks like a keeper to me......I had an early B-10 that truly had every single piece of metal on it hacked up in some form or fashion. It was destined to be a parts tractor and it donated everything imaginable to my fleet of 8 and still yielded me 35 bucks at the scrap yard when I was finished with her.

I never saw tire chains on the front tires. That's a grand idea! Never thought of doing that to help with traction, but it makes perfect sense!!! Learn something new every day.

are those yellow bearing caps factory ?. i have never seen them before. the tire chains are a must, and i just herd someone using a motorcycle chain right down the middle of the tire. they say it works great , like rideing on a rail.

the hood must be of a newer b-10. it does'nt match with the grill. isnt the hood decal supposed have B-10 on it ?. if you have'nt notice , this b-10 is also on a landlord frame. looks to be piece together over the years. atleast all the important B-10 parts are there ^.

Hey Perry! The first B-10 you pictured is the "early B-10" and the second one is the second round of B-10s with the bumble bee motife, square holed grill, A/C sticker emblem and a small B-10 emblem amongst other small changes. Your grill and emblem is correct for an early B-10 (circa 1964.)

Bet your glad you didn't get that one down to parts; Looks to be in nice shape for having been kept going on used parts from the sound of things, like a LL frame. Is it a model 23, 9hp or the newer 10hp

An easy check is the 23D has a cone shaped bearing plate and the 10hp has a flat bearing plate where the crank shaft comes out the front. In either case, both are good enignes. I'm just glad that another B-10 was saved! dOd
