Not much interested in any fixing, but need ing particularly mo-parts. In particular one part that would have cost me around $40 alone...:D a lift cable to replace the one I broke a little while back.

I believe I will just update the older lift with this newer one while I am at it. Rear axle has a buch of weeds wrapped up and grown around it, and I'll have to see if the kohler 12 will actually run...once I evict the current tennants:D

AND.. a Simplicity seat deck! ID tag is for a Allis 712S ..kinda like using dental records for identifacation on this one:D I didnt even notice the shuttle or the seat deck till about the 4th time I looked the tractor over and was looking closer at the lift. Whoever had it before must have had plenty of spare parts laying around. You should have seen the 912H next to this one in the lineup. They had arbor covers from a Allis 400 series bolted onto the deck, ..right down tight onto the arborsB) Then the 42" deck next to that still had wet paint on it. The auction helper on the ground had orange shoes when he rubbed up against it:D..and it had a baffle from a 48" deck hacked and bolted into itsm00

I want a tractor with a shuttle so bad. Nice pickup for the cash, I paid twice that for a 4211 with a bad hydro and no motor.. (I needed the hood). It's a bonus if it runs!

One word, Sam: RESTORATION!:D
Goat...If it were actually a 6 Speed, I would restore it to be my dedicated tilling rig, but alas its not. The tranny will end up on Eds auction( in events and gatherings) along with some other parts from it. The engine and gear box and PTo will stay here for spares. Might save the hood, but it will also probably end up at the auction. Incidentally , I hauled the firts of 3 loads over there yesterday from my stuff. Two more loads to go... I noticed the PTO cap is a replacement with the dealer inventory sticker still on it and the starter is a shiny replacement as well. So , someone spent some money on this before retiring it to the weeds.

I could use the seat pan. I have a Simplicity 7110 6 speed and it came with a Allis 700 series seat pan which I would like to get rid of. The seat pan on yours would work great for my tractor, let me know.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
