    Allis G short Project

    I have been working on Regular G.
    Then got a Short G that usually have a loader on them.
    This one is missing part of the loader.

    For right know I plan on just changing the fronts.

    Also change out Manifold today.

    When you get a new Manifold you need to grind out the sides to allow better access to get the wrench on.
    Also the replacement manifolds are thicker, I had to grind out the one of the spots to allow bracket the holds throttle rod bracket fit better.

    I have seen a couple.

    I would say there is not that many built.
    Here a picture of one with the loader not mine.



    Today got the front off the donor tractor ready to start putting the other one back on.

    Decided to take it apart to make it easier to clean it up, since I am using a wire wheel on this one.
    also using Metal prep that comes with the POR 15 gas tank liner kits to help get some of the rust off.
    Weather is not allowing me to sandblast.





    Removed the Hydraulic lines got the front off.


    When working on these rusting projects, I use the torch to help remove the rust, this will help to get out the cotter pins out and also had to heat the nut as it did not want to turn.


    Put a new bushing in the front support housing.

    Here is what was left of the old one.





    I will be using the front knees off the other front.

    Looking good. First Short G I've ever seen. If the Allis guys show up at local tractor shows they usually bring several Gs .

    yes that what I was told, they were used at the Rail roads.

    Fire up the Long wood stove and bullet heater to heat the barn up.
    Tonight used 80 Grit on my orbital sander and some minor hand sanding.
    Wipe everything down with thinner to help clean up the parts.
    Hit with some primer tonight.
    See how it goes may get the parts painted Tuesday night.




    Need to find some info one the hlyd pump, I can see in the picture of the other one it does go the rear of the tractor I like to find out what it look like.

    Looks like something I should get for the wife. How pricey are they for tractors?

    Not for sure on the price the biggest issue is to find one.
    This one came to me very inexpensive.
    There was one in Mn a couple years ago thinking they wanted $2500.00 with a loader, but not the short one.
