Check the volatage at the battery, then check the voltage at both sides of the solinoid. You should have the same voltage at one side, and none at the other ( the one going to the starter/generator). The other problem could be that you have lost your ground. Try cleaning the battery terminals, and with the meter set to volts DC, touch the red to the positive terminal and the black to a known ground (engine block, tractor frame, exaust manifold) and your meter should read the same as it did across both terminals. If it is less, you need to clean the ground at both ends. If you hear a "Click" when you turn the key to the crank position, you know that the solinoid is good. Have you tried to jump the tractor with your truck or car?

Hi Jason:
I'd try to locate the nearest antique farm equipment club and see if I could connect with someone who had a manual that I could either buy or copy.
Here's a link that will perhaps assist in getting you started.

My Allis Chalmers (1945) tractor has set for about 4 years without running. I replaced the magneto and got it running. Now the starter only makes a weak click. I have removed the locking set screw tha

Before you remove the starter motor, check, with a light bulb, there is good voltage on the motor when energised. It may save you a lot of time!

When setting points on a CA Allis Chalmers Tractor. What should the gap be and do you do it on the lobe or flat service

Set the gap on the high spot on the lob,it should be set at around 50000 or twice the plug gap,this is just a rule of thumb,but changing the timing by turning the distributer will get the engine to max performance after this has been done.

Tractor will not fire points look clean

I am not familiar with the Allis Chalmers brand, but if the coil is good and you are still not getting spark to the plugs, I would consider a sheared flywheel key as the likely cause. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Allis chalmers b starter problem

Two things come to mind. If the plug base is too deep it could bottom out on the piston, and if the cam/shaft timing is off by a tooth or more it could also cause this problem. Check it out.
