Got the B-110 home yesterday

Recommended Posts

Finally got the B-110 home yesterday. First I jacked it up while it was still at her house. I sprayed all the pulleys and other moving parts with WD-40. The front wheel was locked so I sprayed the wheel bearing with WD-40 too, and I tapped it with a hammer, and it freed up. Thankfully it was left in neutral so it was easier to get it on the trailer. You should have seen all of the city slickers slowing down and looking as we were unloading it off the trailer! I got it around back, jacked it up again and put air in the tires, they held air. I thought they wouldn't considering they were pretty cracked and halfway flat. I got the spring in the handle for the attachment lift loose but still can't pull it back (it's stuck in the forward position) I sprayed the clutch, which somewhat loosened up. I can push it in, but I have to pull it back with my hand. I can get the transmission in to 1st and 3rd, but not into 2nd and reverse. The front wheels will not turn manually. (In a pervious post I said the steering wheel had pulled loose) I spun the front PTO with a pipe wrench, It spins freely, but the pulley that goes to the starter/generator is rubbing against the engine housing. I don't think the crank is bent) I noticed a lot of rust on it. (Some surface rust, but it looks like that rust that comes off in chunks) I looked for a replacement on B&S' website but they no longer make that part. I'll post a request on the wanted-parts board for one if I need it. I still need to take the seat pan off to get to the transmission. and the dash to get to the clutch so I could spray the with WD-40 too. I know definitely need a carburetor rebuild kit, I hopefully plan on doing that soon. All I am interested in the moment is getting it up and running, I'll worry about the restoration later.

Looks like you have your work cut out for you Nick. But to me, fixing up is half the fun (even though it can be VERY frustrating}:)). Check out Kirk's (thedaddycat) 2012 restoration in the Talking tractors forum. It may give you some tips and ideas, because his was in about the same condition as yours when he started. Last I looked he was pretty much in the "bolt it together" phase. GOOD LUCK!:D

I did read Daddycat's restoration topic. He stopped for the winter, and also is enlarging his yard for his garden. Looks like I will be cutting most of the bolts off on the tractor. Some I can't even get loose.

I took the right side panel off yesterday. It was so rusted out, I only had to undo 3 bolts. The rest pulled right off. I was very surprised to see Allis-Chalmers (or someone else) used wood underneath the battery. that did more harm than good, by letting moisture rust the battery box.
