Had that happen once in a Model T Ford engine. Had to strip the block and have a new seat installed as the old one was too sloppy.:eek: That insert looks to me like it should be replaced with a new one and yes, also peen it into place.
Love those long fendered Allis'. Need one to round out my Allis collection!! :D

Hi, Is the motometer one with the Allis Chalmers printed inside?
Very nice tractor.
I included a picture of one of my heads off a 1924 longfender,
I wish mine would have just had a bad seat!!!

Hello Paul :wave:,
Thanks
Wats the Motometer ?, is it the oilpressure :shrug:.
This one is serialnumber 6203.
By the Wendelbook it is 1923.
It was allready in this color when we bought it.
I think the color must be greener, this is more ocean blue.
butt the little lines are on it,we also want to make a exhaust wistle on it.

I have seen the little hole in your bad seat,
We had that before by a Huber 18-36 Super Four.
We try to welding it butt it was giving more cracks :barf:
We went back to the U.S.A. and we found a new one.
I think the best thing is to find a new head.
you wil find a new one yust like us :).

I call the motometer the temp. gauge on the radiator cap.
We still have a long way on our restoration, but I am really enjoying the process.
Included a picture as our longfender stands now, it is kind of mess, the block and crank will be going to the machine shop this week or next.

Our Allis Chalmers 20-35 longfender is the oldest Allis Chalmers in the Netherlands and i could be the oldest in Europe.
I never heart of another one.

Did you get your longfender back together?

Thanks Paul :confused:
We have it running again and also went with it to the Gijs Koolen show and it runs very good but when we arrived at home my brother try to turn the head bolts a little bit more.
And when he was doing that, suddenly one broke off :(
So we must take the head again off, til so far.
Take a looke at the picture so you can see the broken bold in the middle.:eek:
At the momend we baught a movie camara and try to work with it :shrug: so we can post a movie in the future of the running AC here on Smokstak.


How far are you with yours.
Dit you have work already somthing on the block ore crank ?.

Chris,

Good to here she is back on her feet! It is a very nice tractor.

We have made some progress, I am trying to get enough time to assemble the short block. We have the governor, water pump, and oil pump rebuilt and ready to assemble. Crank polished, just need to hone the sleeves and fit everything together. Made a trip to Norm Mienert's about a month ago and got the gaskets. We had the block cleaned, several cracks pinned, and it decked and counterbores cut. Still no good news about the bad cylinder head.

Have made a little progress on the radiator, ours was very bad shape. So far have made a test top tank and had the sides laser cut and bent. I have been thinking about trying to build a round tube radiator for our longfender. I can get the parts laser cut, just have to talk my radiator guy into soldering it together? But now have the forms for the top and bottom radiator tanks finished, just need to take the time to build them.

I had some studs come out of our block very hard, but ours one sat in the elements for a number of years, hope your is easier to remove.

Thanks

Paul
