I am getting my 1942 Allis Chalmers C back together and getting to the final stages. I have a couple of questions of anyone who has an older Allis Chalmers B or C.

First, I am not sure how the left hydraulic cylinder goes on. I get it on the pin but then it rests on the belt pulley, which does not seem right. That is with the hose on the top, but then it will not go on with the hose on the bottom.

Second (and probably related), I have two brackets for which I cannot determine where they go. They are from the seat/rear end area. They are about three inches wide and L shaped. One side is about an inch long and the other is about two inches long with two holes in it (for about 1/2" bolts). Perhaps it is something obvious but I cannot find where they go, and I do have a parts manual and owners manual, but no luck finding these two parts.

So if any one knows or has an Allis Chalmers B or C and could take a look and see where the brackets and the cylinders to, please let me know. Driving me crazy trying to figure this out (and it was probably a short drive anyway!!).

Thanks in advance.

Larry

Larry,
1. perhaps the belt pulley can not be used with the cylinders?
2. Are they brackets for some machine / attachment that you do not have?

Howard, You might be right on both accounts. I fabricated a bar to go across from fender to fender to hold up the hydraulic cylinders. I have not got it installed yet, but it fits under the seat and I do not think it will look too bad.

Thanks

Larry

Ran across the pictures I had taken of the Allis C before I started taking it apart. I did not have the seat up high enough. Two two brackets fit under the rear of the seat. Glad I took and pictures and found them.

Steve, Thanks. It is one of those things that drive me nuts. Now I am working on the lights, and I need to get and put on the decals. The old girl is shaping up.
