  1. Tony, Just checked in to see how you and the truck are doing! Its AWESOME! Thanks for bringing us up to date and posting the pictures of the little red binder! Regards, Chris
  2. Charlie, I had missed this because I am usually over in the construction section. Your getting the right folks over in this section to help you. I give you a pat on the back for getting the broken bolts drilled and re-tapped. For not having much experience you sure are getting after it. If it has gas, spark and compression it will run. Maybe not good but it should fire! My TD6 a cousin to your tractor has given me many new learning experiences too. Wishin you the best with your new toy! Regards, Chris
  3. Rick, I have never pulled the engine on one of these but my best guess is that it is the correct way to remove and replace the ring gear. I would get the new one too. Yes pricy, but what isnt now days. A month ago it cost $100 just to fill up my pick up truck. All that work you want it to function when its supposed to!:) That bolt you have in the back hole is always a tough one for me to get started. Just not much room back in there. If your starter checks out you saved the price of the ring gear. I put more than $300 in starter repairs. Had to get a new armature. Thanks for the update and pictures. I have been busy cutting wood for making syrup next spring, mowing lawn and thinking about building a little shed for some of my junk. Regards, Chris
  4. Tj01, The painting process can be a project! I have done 3 of these WD series tractors and they have a lot of parts! Come over and join us on the Allis forum also. Folks would love to see your tractors and projects. Regards, Chris
  5. Pete, Your making good progress! I like the idea of the gas grill! Thanks for the update! Nice when they will start! I need to get my TD6 home. Regards, Chris
  6. Pete, Good progress, lots of wrench turning there! Thanks for the update and sharing the pictures too. Any other things to do while your in there? Are the blocks under it solid? Just want you to be safe. Regards, Chris
  7. Pete, Can you get the new ring gear? Probably the easiest part of the whole job is actualling replacing the ring gear, getting to that point , not so much! Keep us up to date. I have a WD45 shift tower project and will start cutting wood soon for next years syrup. Regards, Chris
  8. Dennis, Your moving right along with the Fordson! Thanks for the updates and pictures. Regards, Chris
  9. Tj01, Hope things go well with the Allis. I have a soft spot for these too. I have had 6 in the last 6 years. Some better than others when they came home. Some getting a refurb. Regards, Chris
  10. Folks, Have been very busy with the maple syrup season. just boiled the last syrup of the season today. Our small operation keeps me busy. Had 200 folks come through the sugarhouse this past weekend! Regards, Chris
  11. Rick, Good pictures of the '6' in the snow doing some work! Nice to have a machine that can help with tasks like that too. Thanks for sharing the pictures! Regards, Chris
  12. Rawleigh, Folks, Yes you can! Please pm me. I know we are not supposed to sell things on here I understand that. We have made almost 100 gallons of delicious syrup branded as FIRE & ICE due to the way we have made it during the cold weather this year! Here is what it looks like towards the sugarhouse today. Off to help tap some trees with a friend tomorrow too. Much more and would have to get Matt to bring the TD6 home! Regards, Chris
  13. Folks, I visited Matt while he was making syrup a few days ago and the TD6 is right there standing ready, Matt on his Allis D14 at his sugarhouse. Grandson Nic and his two boys, Cooper and Rhett cooking hot dogs in the maple syrup arch at our sugarhouse. We are making some awesome syrup this season. Golden Delicate which has been given the name FIRE & ICE syrup. Due to the cold weather freezing the sap and the roaring fire to make it into almost clear syrup Just like My Great grandfather made a hundred years ago. Also marshmellows dont take long to cook. Hope things are good in RED land! Regards, Chris
  14. Morning, You might get some more comments if you posted in the construction section. Yes you need some parts. They are out there. There is a salvage yard with a TD6 near Pittsburgh, closer to Zelienople. Burg Implement. Try them. Good luck with your project. Regards, Chris
  15. Folks, Very quiet here. waiting for warmer weather and the trees to let the sap flow. Syrup season is here in North west Pennsylvania. We have set 600 taps and made 50+ gallons of very nice Golden Delicate maple syrup. I spoke with Matt about the TD6 bucket rebuild. We would like to do that this spring, after syrup season. Hoping he will haul the TD6 to the local show grounds for display this summer too. I really need to think about a heavier trailer. Regards, Chris
  16. Pete, Glad you got that working! Nice when they charge and start when you want! Regards, Chris
  17. Tony, Those knotters look complex! About like rebuilding a external engine! Thanks for the updates and pictures. Regards, Chris
  18. Dennis, Your brazing work looks as good as any I have seen. Should finish up real nice! I have no Idea what happened to the Fordson. Its long gone and so are the folks that knew anything about it. I assume it may have been a early one maybe a 17 or 18? I may have another picture of it running a thresher. The grandparents moved up here from WV about 1915 ish. Regards, Chris
  19. Whats in the Barn?, Very nice Case! Great that you have this family tractor! It looks fresh and new! Regards, Chris
  20. Dennis, Picture/s I promised you. My Dad in around 1924 (he was born in 1920). Picture was taken by his mom, my grandmother on farm in Monroe Center Ohio on the Fordson. Notice that even the dirt looks old. And how old would the tractor be? It looks like its 50 years old! Been rode hard and put away wet many times! Top picture has less glare when I took it. Regards, Chris
  21. Tj, The CA looks fresh and sharp! Regards, Chris
  22. Tony, The baler is going to be a great piece. You folks have really done a good job bringing this unit back to show quality. Just dont see that happen often. I can see why, what a lot of work!:) Regards, Chris
  23. Tony, Thanks for the updates! I always thought one action caused at least 5 new actions! The truck looks great. "low ridin binder"! or "candy apple corn crusher" or "sweet binder" Its going to preform and handle like a new truck with all the up grades too! Regards, Chris
  24. MH, Very nice! Its not the "old 7230" anymore! Thanks for the tips on the paint and the nice pictures too. It looks like new! Regards, Chris
  25. Dennis, It is looking good! Major items accomplished.Thanks for posting these. The pictures will help someone with their project! I still owe you a picture of my Dad on the Fordson too. Will try to get a picture of a picture and post for you. Year would have been around 1924, getting close to 100 years. Wow. As a reminder to all of us: Pictures are of little to no value unless shared with others. If my grandmother had not taken a lot of pictures I would not have the back story on our family's lives before I was around. Regards, Chris
