Hi guys,i"ve never posted on this site before,i"m an international owner but just purchaced an old allis.From the pictures i"ve seen i would say its an old wd-45 gas with the wide front.Ifirst bought it for the rims cause they"ll fit my B250-int,but after lookin it over it would be an easy fix i think.The manifold is missing but everything else is there so as soon as i figure out how to send u guys a picture of this thing,maybe someone could email me directions on how to i would post pics. an we could identify it.By the way i"m a member of the FORUM but on the international site,ok i"ll be waiting for directions,Elky

Elky, If you have the pictures on your computer it's pretty easy.

If you want to add a picture when you start a new thread, look down below the 'Message' box & you'll see 'Attach File' with a 'browse' button. Click browse, find the picture on your computer & then click the 'Open' button in the pop-up window. Then finish your message & click the 'Submit New Thread' button. The photo will be there as an attachment.

If you want the photo to be visible in the new thread, you need to right-click the photo link & select 'Copy Link Location'. Then you edit your original message and insert the following command "<"img src=" -then paste the link using the 'ctrl-v' command- then close the image command with another ">". You need to leave out the " though. Then you click the 'Save Changes' button.

Hope this isn't too confusing.

If you want to host an image, here's how it would look:

CatDaddy, are you one of those keyboard "power users"? I use a few keyboard shortcuts and keep reminding myself to learn more. Great timesavers once you are comfortable with them.

Curt,
Yeah, I guess you could call it that. :D There are plenty of times it's a pain to take your hands off the keyboard & mouse around, so if there are 'convenient' shortcuts I'll use 'em. It started when I needed to get more screen 'real-estate' back when I had a tiny 14" monitor. I discovered you could eliminate many of the toolbar based menus if I was willing to learn a few hot-key combos. That, and setting the task bar to "auto-hide" gave a decent gain. I've since gone to a 21" monitor, but I still use the hot-keys (it's become a habit now). :smoking:

It's really only 20" viewable, but I also have a 19" that I use to run in dual-screen mode (using a DVI-to-VGA converter). (Now if I could just find a S-Video-to-VGA adapter, I could hook up the old 17"er & run 3 monitors!)

I really want a 36+" plasma/LCD/DLP screen to get some of my desk back, but the wife doesn't seem inclined to let me spend $2-3 grand when what I have currently works. C'est la vie.

LAN Administrator where I work spans 3 identical Dell LCD's. That's what I call some screen real estate. Pretty impressive.

Glad I could help.

*edit*
Don't know much about those tractors, but it sure looks pretty much complete. I'd hate to see it parted out if you can get it running.

It just so happens I was checking with a friend of mine tonite about one of those critters (he thinks orange is the only color there is), and he has several. I see in the picture the gearshift is straight according to him that makes it just a WD not a WD45.
WD's were produced from 48 to 52..... 38hp AC rated them at 40 hp If you look just above where the rear lifting arms bolt to the the rearend housing (left side of tractor).scrape the paint you will find the serial #, it will be something like " WD73434" while the WD would be on either model a 5 digit number would make it just a WD . His books show the 1950 model's started at serial # 70'XXX and the 1951's started at 105.XXX making WD73434 an early 1950 model. Most all parts are still available (after market)
hope that helps you some

Elky,
Welcome to the forum! And I'm glad to hear that you are considering fixin' up the ol' Allis. Looks pretty restorable based on your pics. Hopefully the engine isn't froze up and the tranny is ok. Best of luck on it.
