Yes, it is. 1243 started with the W series engines in the WC.

The mag turns counter clockwise on those engines. Have you got your wires in the right order for that? Firing order should be clockwise on the distributor from no. 1

Yes I've got them in the right order but I think I may have set the timing a little retarded which can make it lazy to start

The Big Allis runs! I can see why everybody that has one loves it, the exhaust note is so addicting

Congrats Cody! That it stood outside for years and was revived is an amazing testament to the old gal!

Anyone that knows me, knows Rumelys are my favorite and my W will always be "the last one out of the shed". But the Allis has earned a special place..........

The last few genuine "Thresherman's Specials" had the 5 1/4" bore engine, kerosene manifold and a few other tweaks to give it a "30-60" designation. I had one of these tractors and it would out-pull the Model A Allis that I had with ease. Stupidly, I sold the tractor when I was downsizing and have regretted it ever since. Look on the left hand side (from the drivers seat) of the engine and the serial pad will say "5 1/4 Kero" if it is one of these 30-60 tractors. The power they have is legendary and the sound from the exhaust when on full load is pure music for sure. My tractor stayed in England, but I'm not sure who bought it at the auction - whoever he is, he got one of Allis-Chalmers' best efforts and I would give him his money back tomorrow!.
