Here are a few pics. The rear wheels are very different from the later short fender version.

This is perhaps the dirtiest engine I've seen in a long time. This has a '27 engine and front axle and wheels fitted.

Must be over an inch of caked on dirt and grease in the heads.

The front spindles and steering are from the original long fender

The original rad looks good!

Thumbs up Re: Longfender AC 20-35

Phil,
It is a great and fantastic original in working clothing find you have there.

In the begin of this thread you telling us that the front wheel are from an later model and that the engine coult be replaced in the past.
Wel our working clothing tractors are also almost not original when they came from factory.
I have steel parts from a very old plow inside my Hart Parr of what is not original enymore.
Itís easy for me to change that in to other and more original steel that was original when my Hart Parr came from factory.
But i am not going to change that.
This steel was put on by the pioneers and it gives the tractor something very extra and very special.

So if your AC was my AC i woult only try to make it run but not change many things.

Leave it the way it is.
You can see it is a very special tractor now.

What is original.
A tractor that came from the prairies and that dit some small changes by the hands of the Pioneers !.

Or a tractor that is compleet made original when it came from the factory !.

Wish i coult live close to you.
Sure i woult vizit you a lot.

Keep posting about this fantastic AC.

Chris,

Great old find!
I have a couple of old tractors on my "to watch for" list in case a decent one comes along...an early Allis like this is certainly one I would like in my collection as I feel they were a great early design that was ahead of many others back in the day. A later 20-35 on full steel would be grand also
Thanks for posting,
Tony

They were indeed "ahead of many others back in the day" Tony! The big Allis tractors were strong and capable machines with a wonderful engine which was steadily developed over the years to serve in Allis wheeled and crawler tractors until the mid 1940's. I cannot understand why they have traditionally been so overlooked by collectors.

Phil,

Glad to see you found yourself a longfender. I know you have wanted one for a while. I talked to my brother, and we may have extra parts for the front of your your tractor.

Paul

Thanks, Paul, I'll contact you via PM.

Here is a pic of probably the most grease and dirt caked engine I've ever run across!! It is over an inch thick in places.

I pulled the plugs today and #1 and #4 looked pretty clean. I inserted a long air nozzle in to see what would blow out the plug hole and there was a little light dust. Numbers 2 and 3 showed some rust on the plugs and when the air nozzle was inserted there was a blast of very rusty water from #3 and an equal blast of black water from #2.

The heads will come off after the engine gets a good cleaning. It's not the right one, but it's the one on it for now so I will see how bad it is. Fortunately, I have 3 parts engines around!

This one will have to wait until I get my TC 12-20 finished. But I will still be chasing parts.

Phil,
That is the MOST beautiful engine that I have seen in a long time. To bad you need to disturb the patina!

That's a good one Matt,
Now we are evolving from up from "paint everything", to save the "original patina", and finally to preserve accumulations of the "old crud & dirt"
Wouldn,t bother me a bit to see an old tractor that crusty running and driving, but I bet the "stick in the mud paintgunners" would be pushed over the edge with that one

Now that is what i called engine isolation.
Maby the engine runs much more quietly now.

Mother nature strikes back again.

Oil with dust became a thick lay arround the engine.

Like Matt and Tony woult be nice to keep it on the tractor but it works not very handy if you have to take the engine out of each others or the spark plugs out.

keep posting Phil,
