Default Viking tractor by Allied Motor Corp Questions

Just drug home a two cylinder garden tractor. Tag on the handle brace says Viking Garden Tractor Allied Motor Corp.
37CF7 for a serial or model number.
Wico X Mag, Looks like aTillotsen Carb, two forward/1 reverse
Gas tank mounted front to rear
Can anyone give me an idea of when it was manufactured?

Only thing missing is the front flywheel shroud and crank assembly. How hard to locate this stuff?
Thanks, John

I believe it is a 1937 model. Pretty much the same tractor as a Standard Twin. I think the parts will interchange.

We have a Viking Twin with the exact same number. It is a 1937. Neat tractor.

Candy, Is it the exact same or just the 37CF? The first two tell the year, then the letters are the model and the last numbers are the serial number. On later ones for some reason they put 3 numbers before the model. The middle one is a 0 and doesn't mean anything. You can get some information on them on the Standard Twin Yahoo web site. They are neat tractors. Jeff

Hi Jeff,

You make a good point. I don't have the numbers in front of me at the moment and it is too cold and icey to check.

We have been trying to figure out if ours ever had a cover. Does the CF stand for covered front?

Thanks,
Candy


I'm sure yahoo has many good groups but I'm just not into yahooing.

I make no promises because it think there was testing and I have found that in this bussiness as well as others nothing is 100% certain. Having said that I was told that the CF had hoods and the C models didn't but would they halt production if they were out of a part to put the hood on? I have a 1936 C and it has a hood and looks to be original. The casing looks a little different also, I will post some pictures when I can. Your tractor looks good but It would be my guess that yours had a hood at one time. I think the bracket for the fuel tank closest to the engine is different for the ones without hoods. I saw one on E-bay about a month ago that had a completeley different hood that went back over the differential. I'm far from an expert and any light anyone else can shed on it will be welcome. Jeff

The serial number should be a few digits longer then what you posted. If your tag is not complete, look on the block behind the carb for a machined surface, the serial number should be stamped there.
