Missed the boat

Saw an Allis/Argo 918H for sale near Springfield. Supposed to be in working order with a deck and PS! When I called, there was someone coming from Celina at 5PM. If he was a no-show, the seller was supposed to call. Hmmm, guess what, no call.... Bummer is earlier I had tried the guy, twice, only to find out I was dialing the wrong number.... Smooth. Hope it was picked-up by someone who will use it:)

That was a grand? Wow...very slick! The one I saw for a grand was a 918 with a KT engine and early style PS. Been listed for a couple weeks as the price dropped. I like the orange on black better than the all orange.

Yep, sure does look nice. Will be a good tractor for ya. Make sure the cooling fins are clear and replace the valve cover o-rings if that's where the oil is coming from.

Enjoy!!!!

id="quote">Josh, I don't believe that is a 918. It looks like an early 7117H to me. It looks like a 918 hood was transplanted onto the 7100 frame. Everything else looks like early 7100 from the steering wheel to the silver/gray hydro and throttle levers. Everything from aroun 1992 and newer had black levers and either a black or dark gray frame.

      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!😁
