Trying to understand

Recommended Posts


Hi guys. I'm new to this but,I understand that this site is for simplicity and allis tractors but I also have a case ingersoll 446 with a bad Onan 16 hp motor. Any suggestions on a reasonably priced replacement? I'm confused about the left hand deck discharge. Does that simply mean the motor is on backwards? Let me know what you guys think I appreciate the help I've gotten so far on my 9020

The right/left hand discharge is how the power is moved from the engine to the deck, not how the engine sits.

My JDs have crossways engines (flywheel on left side) and right hand discharge. 300 series JDs have inline engines (flywheel to the back) and still have RH discharge. All are belt drive.

My Allis is an inline with flywheel to the back and LH discharge (PTO drive).

On the old models, you could likely have a right hand discharge on the deck, due to the twisted belt from the PTO to the deck. If you needed right hand discharge and had a deck that would fit with that requirement, simply change the twist on the belt. I am sure that some here have accidentally put the crossover belt on wrong and realized that when they engage the PTO?

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
