The only difference between this engine and the "M" is it has a fuel pump to pull fuel from the rear tank. They are a fun little crawler to play on I have a later version with electric start and love to take it to local shows. Ed B

it may be the same engine, but the starter from an M will not fit-the starter mounts from the opposite direction, on the M it sticks in from the back, on the crawler it mounts like most, into the front of the bellhousing...the M starter will turn the wrong direction, plus not mount up right...
A friend of mine was looking at a T6 at an auction last spring, it was almost restored except the guy couldn't find the right starter...there were 2 starters with it, neither one was right...the T6 starter is very rare & almost nonexistent, I looked all over the Net & anyplace else I could think of, & came up with nothing. Most sources will try to sell you one for an M, but it won't work.
Friend decided not to bid on it...

hello,
I thought about getting a starter for my T6, But then thought otherwise.
My T6 Starts real easy with half a turn on the crank from the 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock position after 2 full cranks with the mag switched off and the choke on.
They are a great little crawler, I am only the second owner of this machine. It was allocated to the previous owners farm during WWII by the war Agricultural committee under the "Lease-Lend" scheme. The story I got told when I bought it in 2011 was they did apply for a wheeled tractor but that boat got sunk coming across the Atlantic, and the next available machine was this little T6 Crawler, They later got a Farmall M & H. The T6 spent it's whole working life on their family farm in Stranraer, Scotland. It has very little wear

Rusty,Nice IH crawler! for what work i do the machine,i believe i just as well stick to the hand crank. my machine starts on the 3-4 crank as well. Just figuring,if i got the blade in the bog and engine would happen to shut down,i would be pretty much screwed with the blade or nose in the mud. Do you like driving the t6 or the M most? had to ask, seen it in the corner of your shop. nice machines.

Hello,
That Allis M is a 1938 model, with it being pre-war it has electric start. and fires up instantly It was the 1st tractor I bought with my own money years ago. My Father also collected tractors and he would never buy a crawler when I was young because he always used to say "You'll kill yourself!" So I went and bought my own, when I was old enough. I have a few Crawlers in my collection now. Last week I bought a Cletrac, also just behind the Allis M in the workshop is a little RANSOMES MG2 which was made in Ipswich, England between 1936-1948. The first Ransomes MG (Motor Garden) cultivator was made in 1936. It had Roadless designed rubber jointed tracks and a 600cc Sturmey Archer petrol engine and one speed forward and reverse gear. Later MG2ís had a Ransomes designed engine fitted. Between 1936 and 1948 about 3,000 MG2ís were made. My Favourite crawler in my collection, I think has to be my Fordson County Crawler or my Track Marshall 55 which has the Perkins 4.270 4cyl diesel motor mainly due to the fact they are diesel. I also have a cat D2 5J but we are fitting new sleeves and pistons to the diesel motor and I got hold of some nearly new tracks but that's on the back burner for now ...

Thanks
Carl Hargreaves
