Welcome to the club.

bgb is an acronym for bevel gear box. It's the gear box mounted between the back of the frame and the tranny, which diverts the power from the driveshaft 90 degrees to power the transmission and pto pulleys.

My name is Ken, I just joined today. I just in the last month purchased a Allis 410. I'm very pleased with the tractor. But I have a problem. I'm trying to locate a sleeve hitch for a brinley plow, I may be mistaken but I thought I seen where one of the club members can make the sleeve hitch in question. If so please contact me, or if anyone has a idea to where I can purchase one, it would be greatly appreciated.

Still new, this is Ken again, about 15 years ago I purchased a simplicity broadmoor. Over the years I managed to lose some parts for the old girl, it's a 707, and I am in need of a grill, the hubcaps. As I intend to rebuild her, I will be needing these parts, does anyone know of a place to purchase these items. Thank you for any help you can provide.

tractorbay1,

It's best to start a new thread when you're looking for help on a different subject. That way folks with knowledge about your issue will see it in the post title and usually help out. Or put your pars request in the "classified" section; folk's that have something to sell routinely read that forum.

That said, at one time, RayS, our president made sleeve hitches. I don't know if he still does.

      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!😁
