Allis 900 series Project!!!

Recommended Posts

Alltractoredup

 I have been wanting to do a custom Allis based off the 900/7100 body style.  They are my favorite series and parts readily available.  I found a roller 916H in great shape, perfect candidate for parts and bought from another member a 900/Sovereign frame and parts as the basis for the build.  There are a few "must haves" with this custom build....

  1. Extended front frame and hood for cooler look and extra room under hood
  2. A strong and reliable engine.  Going with a Kawasaki FD620D that is liquid cooled(kinda cool)
  3. Power Steering and not necessarily Simplicity factory version
  4. Stronger front axle and 5-bolt wheel spindles 
  5. Dual hydraulic front and rear ports for attachments
  6. Auxillary engine oil and hydraulic oil cooler located in front of tractor
  7. Cat 0 Three point hitch
  8. Custom front grill

Hopeful Additions:

  1. Diesel engine!!!!  so spendy....
  2. Custom grader blade with hydraulic lift and 4-way angleing
  3. 60" front plow
  4. Allis 38" HD tiller.  I had one once and sold it.....

So far I have the Kawasaki from a Cub Cadet as well as other donor parts.  I will be using an automotive 12" electric fan instead of the mechanical Kawasaki one.  I will be using power steering parts from Cub Cadet most likely.  I may use an automotive power steering pump instead.  Front axle and wheel hubs are from a Toro Groundsmaster rear axle off ebay.  All tires are brand new Deestone Ag tires.  I bought two extra rear rims and tires for a dual wheel setup too.  

Enjoy the pics and feel free to ask questions or make comments

I thought I could put notes on each picture but was unsuccessfull.  Here are some more details:

Front tires are 4.00 x 8  (Deere donor rims)

Rear tires are 6.00 - 14

Steel Wheels are 14 x 5.5 x 4.25 bolt pattern

 

I had to use a massive 1" x 7" bolt for the front axle

I just bought a new Hobart 130 Welder and still trying to dial in my welding skills.  Been doing the good ole weld, grind reweld in the pocket deal a little bit

I used 2" aluminum wheel spacers for the rear wheels for a wider stance and to measure up better with the front axle upgrade.  I have to admit I was lucky that between the wheel spacers, larger rear tires and new front axle and wheels, it all levelled out perfectly!!  The measured this out before hand but never imagined it would be spot on.

Here is some more I did tonight.  Reworking the Cub Cadet Steering column to work with the existing Allis Steering column and gauge face plate.  After some measuring and cutting I think I am pretty close.  The bugs started attacking and my wife is on her way home.  Time to clean up.  I need to cut down the steering shaft and weld together.  The steering valve will fit comfortably behind the battery with plenty of room for fluid lines.

To add a comment between pics, if you place the cursor after the pic and press "return", a new line will appear and you can add comments.  If you want to do this to the first post in this thread, choose the "edit" feature at the bottom of your post.  Or when constructing the post, you can upload all the pics at once, but insert them into the post one-at-a-time (pic is inserted just after the cursor position) and type your comments as you go.

Great fab work  Looks fantastic.

Nice work Jaxon bringing thoughts to reality. Those 900 series are a good solid foundation to start with on a project like this. Keep the dialog rolling and best wishes for good working conditions.

I will check with a local hydraulic shop about having steel lines or rubber lines made.  I may have to see about using the existing ends and having a hose crimped on by a shop too.  Its a work in progress

Been away from the tractor this week.  I decided to get a better welding setup and switch from flux core to MIG.  Much better results when practicing.  I hope to hit it hard this weekend and make some progress

I spent some time figuring out the steering geometry.  I am using GM inner and outer tie rods for steering linkage.  I cut off the inner tie rod ball joints and welded the two inners together after doing some measuring.

The steering cylinder is off my 3205 cub cadet donor tractor.  I will need to drill a hole next to the steering linkage tie rod for cylinder mount.

I also spent WAY more time on the steering column and steering valve than I wanted.  After cutting, grinding and making small welds, I realized at some point I mad the steering wheel mount bachwards!!!  So, instead of the wheel facing back towards the driver it angled towards the front of tractor!dz.  I had to walk away and clear my head after that....sm00

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
