Yes,we have no bananas (or starters for a Model B)

I posted a message or two about the availability of two free Alll-Crop 66’s in Indiana.   I called the owner the next day and asked if she received any calls for the machines. She sure did, about 12; half of them inquiring about the free Oliver 66 tractors….I chuckled and then related to her how many people contact me asking for parts for their Allis generator, forklift, assorted tractors, etc… I dont mind pointing them in the right direction, glad to help, but it sure makes me wonder what part of “Allis-Chalmers All-Crop Resource Site” was misunderstood.  Oh well, I guess it comes with the territory!

“Area 51” Model 60? a.k.a “It officially does not exist”?

August 17, 2007

Had a customer call me about his model 60, when discussing the serial number, he said he got it from a tag (a tag?) on the grain tank side of the combine. Started with  a “S” (if I remember correctly) and a number that makes it made between 91162 and 95389.  Problem is there is no record of any combine being made in that range as it was a “gap”.  But this was during the WWII years, so perhaps this one was cobbled together and never stamped with the serial as it officially was not to exist?…. I have asked the owner to look for that stamp on the other side…
