Allis Chalmers 917 Hydro

Recommended Posts

ardisam

About a month ago I purchased a Allis Chalmers 917 for $300 that came with a 42 inch deck(no blades, but brand new belts), it has the Kohler KT 17 series II motor instead of the series I motor. Its an early 917 because no bushing next to the lift handle. I have already added a fuel tank, seat, air filter housing. She will be getting a paint job, another 23x10.50-12 tire(came with a original tire and rim, but had a 8.50 tire and on it), muffler(currently looking for one) other than that its in good shape.

Very nice!  I like the Allis Chalmers banner in the background too.  I got a wheel horse lawn & garden tractors banner for my father to put in his tractor shed, for Father's Day.

Here your guys! After a few weeks, I finished painting the tractor. I took off the oil filter and went ahead and added the block in place of the filter. I still need to find a seat for it yet and hopeful find a electric lift for it. I already have the wiring harness for it. Just need the motor, mounting bracket and pointer. I wasn't proud of the primer I was using. It's pretty easy to scratch the paint as I found out. I feel the AGCO primer is way better. I think I'm going to save the 42 inch deck for a 916 that I'm going to be getting, so I am going to use the spare 48 inch deck that I have.  Check out the photos and see what you think!

 Nice job it looks great.  I really like the Alice Chalmers look , I’ve done a couple 7116’s but I can never seem to find a 900 series...? 

 FYI,  my TSC store started carrying the mid height tractor seats with a metal housing, (which is nice for applying the decals)

awesome tractor!

Thank you very much! I will have to go on TSC and see what I can find! I know down the road here, I will be getting a Allis Chalmers 916. It's a payment for rebuilding a motor.
