Does anyone have, keep or know much about these tractors? My dad has several...two with mowers on them, one with a tiller and one with nothing yet. Has a cultivator, but not on anything. The only modification is a bucket seat (more comfy! lol). They're used regular mowing and all. Said he might sell one but wasn't sure. All have been redone...good paint, run. What's a fair price? Is the tiller attachment readily available? (That is, are they easy to find?)

Hi Jan, check out this site. You should find quite a few representative machines that will give you an idea of price. At link, scroll down slightly and click on view ads. [url]http://www.tractorshed.com/cgi-bin/photoads/classifieds.cgi[/url]

A good running, restored C will go for around $1500. I've seen them bring much more and much less, but this figure is probably around average. The C was basically a narrow front version of the popular B Allis Chalmers. Engine has around 12 hp. The model C was replaced by the CA, which has significantly more hp (around 22hp), and had the snap coupler hitch as an option. The C is a good little tractor and popular with collectors. DaveM

I believe the C and the CA had the same engines and horsepower rating, but the CA had a 4-speed tranny, hand clutch like the WD, and snap coupler hitch. The C had only a 3-speed tranny. CA might also have had live hydraulics, but I'm not sure.

Hi Jan, here's one you can watch to see what it goes for. [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2317685636&category=20544[/url] [img]http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_38e77f126de053133871f2ab28b0dd81/i-1.JPG[/img]

Short I understand they aren't common. I *know* they do exist cause my dad has one. But was thinking of the idea of buying one of his other ones...and finding a tiller but that may be way more difficult than it seems! He also has 2 cultivators...one is little more than parts but there's one good cultivator there. And one has a mower deck on it...don't know the size but the 2 mowers he has mow several acres a week. Just looking at ways to use it if I buy it from him. :-)

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
