Probably can as long as it hasn’t been ignored too long. I always thought they felt a little funny, like on my M I almost run out of arm before it is in gear... the Allis doesn’t feel like it moved at all. Short throw shifter I guess. 

That short throw is because of their constant mesh trans. Only shifting a collar. The WD has a longer throw more like an M because it's sliding gear trans. The collar shift is the Allis's achilleas heal. To narrow of collar combined with a guy can shift on the go and grinds it into gear. Every trans I did both the collar and the cogs were rounded off,  Maybe grinding the detent to force it on a little farther one way would help for one gear, in my mind you would loose that distance shifting the other way.

Both Allis and Oliver were ahead of the pack in constant mesh transmissions. A trans brake or synchro's would have made them near perfect.

As promised here are a couple pics of mine.. The one thing that I'm not crazy about is the location of the gear shift lever, I'm always afraid I'm going to kick it into gear when I get on. I try to remember to pull the power director lever into neutral so if I do it won't take off.

@Wes806 - here ya go - I used a second WD seat support, and added a piece to the lower shock mount to use the brake centering bolt.  It would be easier with the later WD45 seat supports that the whole thing just mounts off of the brake cover.

Adam, you need to post this on the Orange board! Or maybe, you need to patent it first.

I did years ago - if you go to google and type in WD Buddy Seat, my tractor appears.  It turns up in discussion on FB groups and unofficial allis from time to time.  It's kinda funny to browse along minding your own business and find your tractor.

That is slick looking. Now I know what to do with some seat supports I have laying around. No longer can my wife say "there's no room" when I want her to take a tractor ride.
