Default New guy from Maryland

Hello, Iíve been looking on this website for a long, long time, and just joined. My brother and I like to work on anything old/odd with an engine together. Heís not a member here, yet!
Years ago We restored a few Maytag engines, some old Briggs, outboard engines from the 50ís and older, and some old riding mowers. We took a break For a few years, and didnít work on anything. Well, Iím back into the hobby!

Back in the end of March, I acquired my grandfatherís 1948 Allis-Chalmers model C. It was a total basket case, everything was rusted, and the engine was locked up. My brother and I did a total restoration of it, and completed it this past weekend. We worked on it every weekend, and in the evenings since I got it. Proud to say, we did all the work ourselves. This was the biggest restoration we ever tried. A lot of work, but our Papís tractor is back to its former glory.

He and I have been talking about our next project. See, when we took a break we didnít get rid of anything, and we have enough projects to last for a long time. Next project is going to most likely be a model B Maytag washing machine. We will put on one of the Maytag engines we restored a few years ago.
Anyways, I joined here, to hopefully give and receive help with other members.
Thanks for having me.

Welcome to the Stak. A lot of us were lurkers, and then we finally joined up.

Do you have any pictures/history of the rebuild?

Later,
Jerry Christiansen

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I have a huge amount of pictures from the Allis-Chalmers restoration. Not sure what section to post them in, but would love to share/show them.

Welcome to the Stak! Great bunch of guys and gals here. If you have questions or need help, this is the place to come. I'm still a lurker. As much lurking that a 70 year young man can do.

Interesting indeed! Iíve lived in Frederick, Maryland my whole life. Not sure if I know any dealers that are still in business today that would have been open, when your Rumely was new.
Do you happen to know the dealers company name? Have you done any research on the dealers history? The history behind any of these machines, are just as nice as the machines themselves.

Take the 1948 Allis-Chalmers C I restored. Iím not sure who the dealer was that sold it, but I do know that it was the only tractor on the farm when my grandparents moved there in 1950. It never left the farm, until I took it off to restore it. I actually had it in my possession since November of 2016, but just started working on it this past March. So it spent 68 years in one very small area. Still, can say it hasnít left Frederick county, in 71 years.
