Default 1924 Allis Chalmers 20-35 Longfender

Here is our 1924 Longfender when I brought it home in 2006.



I moved it into the shop latter that year to begin restoration.

As you can see she needed quite a bit of work, but I was just happy that it was ours.

The first part I built was the starting pawl as seen below.



The hunt for parts began and in a fairly short time rear wheels were acquired from Pennsylvania, fenders from Ohio, front wheels, and radiator with a tractor from Missouri. The radiator turned out not to be usable, but the tractor turned out to be a Greyhound, so it all turned out Ok.

So far we have completed the short block for the engine, rebuilt most of the front axle, and started on building a new radiator.

When I went to pick up the tractor from Larry Swenson, we looked it over during loading a were impressed how little wear there was on the drawbar. We thought it may not have been used real hard.

The front axle proved that wrong.

The king pins, spindles, and axle was all wore out.

I built new king pins to fit the bored axle, and installed bronze bushings in the spindles.

The rear pivot for the front axle was also quite wore out. So far we have been lucky that most of the repaired items have been able to be bored oversize an a new pin or bolt made to fit.






More latter if there is interest.

It's wonderful to see such a great old tractor being brought back to life. The long wing 20-35's are very hard to find over on this side of the pond.

Paul we spoke before, still trying to get some pics of the tractor at its 50 yr resting place for you. I have found them and its a matter of scanning them or snail mail to you. My cousin is very happy his old dream didn't get parted out. Thanks very much!!!He was a little afraid of that when Larry picked it up. Like I said the 18-30 in the pics went to John in Crosby. Maybe you can msg me your address.
