Hello
I just went and bought a Allis B10 its a 66 or 7. Runs good, just rebuilt card but still having an issue with fuel overflowing the bottom intake. I did put new float in, but believe issue might be in plunger type thing on bottom of float and the clip. has anyone had any issues like that? Also what type of oil in rearend? and the final newbie questin is why do i have an extra wire hangingdown by my mag. whats it go to? theres two on magnito already which looks right this lines a third(pic 1) where does it go. comes from the engine. Anyhelp greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I don't have any pics handy, but the tab on the float, that presses on the needle (plunger looking thing), need to be bent so that it opens a bit more. With the upper part of the carb upside down, that float should stand level, or slightly above level. That enables it to close and shut the fuel off when the bowl fills.

NICE MACHINE! =]

That's was my project before I posted yesterday. Cleaned the tank, replaced lines and put new petcock on. The tank wasn't bad. But anything I get used gets the fuel system cleaned I always seem to buy old iron.
That simplicity is a amazing looking tractor. Do they make anything similarities to those tires today

Yeah, they are great machines. Easy to work on, and a good following of folks who are willing to help. They are pretty bullet proof, with a few weak points being the BGB, axle tube, and steering components (steering gear, ball joints, and center pivot on the front axle)

I like the way they handle and the old Briggs' are a great, long lasting engine. It's amazing how these will do so much more than a modern lawn or garden tractor. My passion for them started with the dream of owning some of the rarer attachments...there are so, so many, both common and rare. The attachments are built like the tractors and are easy to use and work well. At some point I will try to document how many I have. It's a lot. Many 'dream come true' moments. =]

I don't know of a modern equivalent to the Schenuit. Best odds are to find an old 6-12 set of rims with the tires in OK shape and tube them. I don't believe the B-10 ever had 6-12's, but some early one's were said to wear 8", with their later cousins having 8.5" Goodyears. I'm not sure what 6-12's the B-1 wore...Goodyear Terra's as well?

We need to see a bit more of your machine!

The gears can become a bit loose, then they wear. If you have things cleaned and snugged, that will go a long way.

The ammeter...I've rarely noticed them working, and couldn't even tell you if mine do.

The parking brake should work about as well as your braking when you use the pedal. There should be an elbow piece of round stock that threads into a bracket on the brake rod, through the frame on the RH side.

With the brake depressed, the 90 elbow turns clockwise until tight. It should hold the brake rod in place, keep the brake band tight.

Warm the engine. Shut her dow, and turn the fuel screws in until tight (not too tight!), then back them out about a turn and a half. Fire her up and at an idle turn the idle mixture screw (upper one) in until it starts to lean and run rough. Back it out past where it started, until it agains runs rough. The half way point between the two is where it needs to be (should idle nicely at a very low rpm).

Increase your rpm until until high (if it will without running rough) and follow the same proceedure. You should find a nice full throttle sweet spot.

Here's the governor spring settings:

I was wondering if the extra wire in pic 2 could possible be for the lights or if it's for the. Coil or mag just helped neighbor in my garage with pro issues and saw his light wire was. Coming from pain in azz area on engine also

have you had it running yet? who know's what things have happened to it from the years of people working on it, the wire could be attached to anything.lol The neighbor has a b-210, I will take a look this morning and see I can find the wire your talking about. he, like all of us, loves to show off his garden tractors. his looses power going up hills, has to have it full throttle and in first gear or it will just run out of steam. ok, little off topic now. I'll let ya know what I come up with. If grammer is going to be an isssue, I think we are all in trouble....were gear heads....lol
