I recently purchased a 616 Allis that had been involved in a fire. The structure it was in caught fire, and it suffered some damage as a result. The paint on the hood, and fenders was pretty much scorched off, as well as the front tires were burned up. Amazingly, the wiring is largely intact, and I was able to get it running once the starter was repaired (by me). Of course, I had to take the engine out to get at the starter. Anyway, I am thinking I might keep it pretty much as is, but make it functional. It runs and drives well, and both PTO's work, too, as well as the 3 point. I did have to throw some trailer tires up front to roll it on the trailer, but I am pleased with it!  It even came with a tiller! - - - Metalguy

A few more pics of Crispys progress. I 3d printed a air cleaner plenum, fixed the wiring, used the tiller, made a steering wheel, installed new tri rib front tires, new lights in original housings, built a back blade, and cleaned, and painted the dash with new decal... oh, and also using it to move some wood from trees I had taken out.

Wow!

No dust settles around you.

Do you have time to down a beer now and then?

Thanks, guys! Lots left to do, but getting there slowly. Having 4 tractors to work on all at once is sometimes daunting, but always satisfying! ------Metalguy

Know all about this at one time, had 5 Powermax/Allis and 12 others, always at least one needing something done. Rite now 9020 needing a starter and not finding time to get to it.
