Allis Chalmers T-816

Picked up this awesome ride for a cool $250. Now I have to start buying parts like mad to keep her cutting the grass, but I don't mind. Ain't she sweet?

Re: Allis Chalmers T-816

Glad that you joined us here

Looks good

Just tell her you are fixing it for someone it is not yours and when they never show up to pick it up tell her you are keeping it for all of the work you put into it.

Just bought a Allis Chalmers T-816

Hello, i just picked up an 816 for $400 near New York, not sure if that was a good price as i'm not familiar with these tractors as i'm from Scotland and have not seen this model there. I am familier with Allis though from my time on the farms in Saskatchewn. So i'm very pleased with my buy and the condition of this machine for it's age. 1984 i think.
I have it running well but have taken the deck of to replace blades and belt.I do not have any operators info on the machine so
i was hoping someone could tell me about the variable speed control..does it only work when you are cutting? As it does not work at the moment and i would suggest it was seized in some way. Also there is some slippage in second and third gear..would you suggest a new drive belt or is there some way to tighten it up.
Also i may have posted this incorrectly so i apologise in advance as i'm still trying to figure the site out.

Re: Allis Chalmers T-816

Have you gotten anywhere with your T-816??? I have one as well and have taken the tranny apart a few times. My tranny would get stuck in one gear, typically 1st and I found that the "fix" the shop told me is wrong. If you haven't found the manuals, let me know, they are available through Simplicity, it's the same as the 6216 and I have them downloaded as well, including the snowthrower and tiller manuals.
