My "new" toy - Deutz-Allis 1920

Recommended Posts

Picked this up out of some trees, rough condition, hadn't run for a few years. Figured it would be a big project, and I'm about "projected out"! It came with a vac/blower & cart, which I have no interest in. (It's on the Classifieds, if I can mention that here?)One day decided to see if it would run.Battery in, cranked over.Poured gas down the intake, fired up!Hooked gravity tank to intake of fuel pump, started & ran!!(getting excited here, since I figured I'd have to pull the carb!)Poured gas into the tank, changed fuel filter, fired it up!!! Won't idle, but runs good enough to find out:Hydro tranny is fully functionalBrakes work (important!)Hydraulics work.Now, what are these two levers on the back right side? Downloaded an owner's manual. Cool! Differential lock, and high-neutral-low shift. Wait a minute. Someone made a cover for the tunnel, and failed to cut a slot for the shifter; permanently in low range! Took cover off, all works good. The tires were badly weather checked from sitting in the ground to the point they would not hold air. I put tubes in them just to get by to see if everything works. This looks like it will be a great utility tractor to have around. Already planning to build a loader for it. Already ordered panels for the cowl. They are Simplicity, but the price was right! It has a 60" deck, very rough. May eventually fix it up. Right now my mower tractor is a 1980 JD 216 with a 4' deck. The extra width would be nice for the 2 acres we have.

First purchase should be tin for left cylinder/head before you overheat and damage the engine. Otherwise looks like a good start to a fine tractor...Dave

      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!😁
