Allis 916 look fors

Recommended Posts


Going to get an allis 916 on Saturday with a 48" deck and a brinly landscape rake. He said the clutch needs to be replaced but the new one is in a box that he never get around to installing.

I know to check for slop in the BGB, but what else with these? I bought my 7116 sight unseen and really got lucky. This also has the Kohler cast iron engine in it, which I don't know like I do the Briggs cast single in my 7116.

Nothing is really any different from the 7116. The Kohler has a different counterbalance system that can have problems if a keeper gets worn though or breaks. You can't really spot their problems without doing exploratory surgery. If it runs good, quiet, and doesn't use oil I wouldn't get too concerned.

Sounds like the same one I was going to try to get this spring and ended up in the hospital. He did have a like new snowblower for it to if the guy is in Southern Wis I bet it's the same tractor. I was thinking it was a 7116 though with a Briggs.

      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!😁
