Hi, I found a AC B10 on Maine CL. It has a custom plow, stinger weight, and tire chains. The problem is it doesn't have 3 gear he says the key broke on it and it could use a resto. He want 230 for it . Is it worth that? An info would help.

Do a Youtube search for "zippovarga". He has some good clips with tips on what to look for when buying an antique Allis or Simplicity tractor. Check this link. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=109736

heres the link to the tractor. maine.craigslist.org/grd/2909946361.html it looks pretty rough to me. but looks can be deceiving! i just got off the phone with him it runs. little smoky under a load. i think it might be worth looking at. but im in Boston MA. check it out it may be worth your trip. its not a factory plow. :( does have chains, and stinger. :) if it runs and it seems ok id offer him $150. imo

3rd gear busted is usually the 1st/3rd combined pinion gear(had one last year) unbrazing itself. Will work in 1st but not 3rd when it is such, which may or may not be annoying. Some get new trans to replace, I went new gear since it is still available. Sadly it does cost around $130 to get the gear, but what's another 50 yrs to ya ;)
