Default Heavyweight Teaser

Just thought I'd post up a couple o pics of what followed me home this last week from a sale I was at. It was 1/2 into my trip that I realized my camera was still in my dresser drawer, so I got a few shots with my phone before the batt. died. I was more closely followed home (on my trailer) by an Allis 20-35 and a "butt load" of misc. Rumely parts. Beside my O/P's are a pair of T/C 12-20's and a "Mike McKnight" style 20-30 Wallis (sorry Mike). My Allis isn't much better, though. Other notables were a Case crossmotor, a Hart Parr 18-36, another (complete) Allis 20-35 and a host of "garden variety" Deere's/Deerings/MH's/Case's. I'll post more (better) pics later.

The rumelys are both fairly complete, but both need their fair share of work. As for what I paid, I'd rather not say. Here's a few shots of the Allis now that it's off the trailer. Any knowledgable allis guys be able to tell me where to find where the # is hidden?

Jon,
Looks like that was a NICE sale! Congrats on the load of new stuff! Any 12-20 spare parts in your "buttload" of Rumely stuff? I still could use a few....

Mike M.

Jon, sorry did not mean to pry, I did not see the Rumely's on your list. Sounds like you had a great sale! I like those kind of items when they follow me home

Contact Norm. Here is his website. He has most anything you need for Allis. His number is on the website. He will point you in the direction of serial number also. http://normsactractors.com/

Jon,

The serial number on a 20-35 is stamped in the transmission housing just ahead of the shifter.

The number can be hard to read sometimes.

Thanks for the info on the Allis, guys. As for the aformentioned "buttload", the next day when I went back to load, I talked with the owner (seller) about a bunch of Rumely parts strewn about. After a short negotiation, I went back and grabbed a 20-40 crank and belt pulley, a 16-30 "cannon barrel" and pinion gear (I think) and what looked like some lightwieht final drive stuff (thanks Bruce for pointing it out!) the only K stuff I got was the stuff that I bought a few months back off of eng.ads. I also bought another 20-40 trans to go with the G. One thing that can't go without saying, is how much I enjoy(ed) being able to talk with the seller(s). Not because I want to "budy up" to get free parts, but because I had the luxury of tapping into his vast amount of knowledge of the stuff he was selling, specifically the stuff I bought. Us, as the up and coming collectors of this stuff, need to take advantage of this (more than I think we do) while these fellas are still around. Anyways, sorry for getting long winded.

Jon

Jon:
Was that the sale near Athabasca here in Alberta?

If your Allis is a '27 the number may be on a tag attached to the dash near the oil pressure gauge, otherwise as Paul says it is stamped, often very faintly, right in front of the shifter.

I can help you out with a lot of the missing parts on your Allis.
PM me.

The # I got off it is 15988. The list I referenced to makes it a '29. Sound right?

I believe that number makes it a 1928 model.

I just hopped on the Allis site and, your right, it is a '28 if I'm reading it right. At what point did they they change from being called a 18-30 to a 20-35?

Jon,

The last 18-30's were made until 1921.

No Production in 1922.

First 20-35's in 1923, which were long fender.

Short fender like yours were built beginning in 1927 though 1929, and 25-40's were produced from 1930 to 1935.

Paul

Looks like he'd really rather not share the price on his Rumely tractors...which is certainly his decision to make. Who knows, his wife might be reading?

It's easier to keep a secret in Washington D.C. than keep word from getting out as to what an antique tractor brought.

Onkel G,
My darling wife knows what I paid for my "stuff", I just don't make it a point to tell her what I've got in it after chasing parts, machine work, boiler work, etc!

Mike
She's all to aware what I wrote a check for at the end of the day. Oddly enough though, she decided to warm up in the truck for a while during the sale and wouldn't ya know...
