B210 upgrade

Recommended Posts

GLPointon

After seeing my B12 with lights I had to upgrade my B210 with some front & rear lights too...Our VP-Osenga hooked me up with some light brackets ;) Thanks Bryan

I had to drill long-ways thru the bolt on this Light to use it on the rear location. I couldn't find any lights with the hollow bolt like the OEM were. But this actually worked well...

What's the steering cap part #, Greg? Will this one work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Allis-Chalmers-Steering-Wheel-Cap-170-175-180-190-6060-7010-7020-7060-7580-/390383755957?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item5ae4af62b5#ht_1965wt_1141

If not, do you have the old one? I can't imagine it would be that expensive to have a plastics place mold you a new one, or a machine shop to cut one on a lathe. Then just get Clickitandstick it to make you a sticker for the center. Just an idea.

Thanks Chris, But the manual & part # I have is for the Simplicity version (2210) don't know the AC #...The one on E-bay was there during the resto too. It's for the bigger machines & I was told it wont fit the garden tractors. The cap was gone when I got the tractor :(

Nice tractors Greg. The problem I have had is whenever I take out the cap, by the time I go to put it back on a year or two later, the steering wheel has warped and will no logner accept a cap. I have had this happen twice.

I think some of the front wheel bearing dust covers fit in the center of the B210 steering wheels if you want a temporary cover.

Thanks Tony, I actually wash them off after each use and when they're in the shop & I'm working on another one I always cover them...Old fitted bedsheets work great as tractor covers, the elastic fits around the wheels & helps keep 'em on sm01

Nice tractors, how do you keep them so clean

Hey Bryan if you wanna sell one of those "spare" caps, I know who would buy one ;)

      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!😁
