Default Allis K

I looked at a K crawler this week and have a few questions. How hard is it to come by a starter, manifold, and air cleaner? What magneto did it have originally, this is a steering wheel model serial number m5724 on the block.
Any help would be great.

If it is from '29 to '33, it should have a base mount Eisemann GL4 magneto. '33 to early '35 should be a Bendix or Fairbanks Morse.

Norm Meinert may be able to help you with some parts.

I belive the manifolds are the same as a 20-35 Allis Chalmers, there are new ones being made.

Manifolds without the heat chamber are being made new, and you can get a faux heat chamber added if you want, but it costs a little more. Check with Norm Meinert for those (Norms Antiques). Starters are a tougher bird to track down, but they are out there. Norm may also have a line on one of those. They go for $300-1000 depending on how nice/rebuilt the unit might be. Air cleaners are going to be a tough one as I'm not sure how the K air cleaners differentiate from the A's and it all depends on the vintage as Phil said below. Find out the year and then you may get some better answers on that. I know Norm does reproduce Air cleaner bowls, might do more or know how to source one for you. Magnetos are another bag of monkeys on these. If you can, look for later style mags for these engines, and I'm talking about the Fairbanks Morse mags. The RV4 is okay, though the later style 04B is the best. Later style Zenith carbs also are more favorable than the other earlier big bowl style. Just preference. My family has a couple of A's, thus the perspective. K's are pretty cool, would love to have one some day. Good luck on your project!
