Not sure just what you are asking or why you've posted a question about Allis Chambers in the New Holland section. :truth:

Maybe Greg would have a little more to say if you could elaborate on the subject a little more yourself. I think he loves a good lively discussion but he seems to be having trouble getting any traction with out an opposing view. :winky:

I'm not much of an Allis Chambers man. I know the Allis Chambers G had a rear mounted engine. Is this what you are asking about?

If you have a spare one or two laying around that you would like to part with real cheap, let me know kind’a on the sly. I wouldn't want the big boys to get to them before I get a chance at 'em.

:cpu:

Hey bigallis, I saw an AC Model G with the motor in the back at the Missouri State Fair today. It was restored by a high school kid. I didn't realize they were so small. I took pics with a borrowed camera. Should be able to post them in a few days.

Thanx for moving it to the right place. I dont know how to do that. Yes i would love to see pics of those old things, the last one i saw was in 1973, when mr. Hubbard was still driving a 1956 chrysler station wagon to church, he had one in his barn, he also had a "C" cab Mack truck , about a 1919 i think.

Here's an AC Model G that is at the Missouri State Fair. It was restored by a high school kid in FFA. He did a great job. Note the plow disc combo in the front.

I have more pics of the state fair here Mow's MO State Fair Pics Click an image for a bigger pic or click "Start Slideshow"

P71,

The first riding mower I got to use was a 5 HP 25" cut Western Auto "Wizard". It was pretty fast for a rider. I guess it had to be to make up for the that little 25" cut.

The rear wheels were about 6 inches in diameter.
