This is the 416h Allis I went through a few years back. My brother-in-law up the road has it now. It was his Uncle's. then his Dad's, then his, then mine. It was worn badly everywhere and almost un-useable. I traded him out of it to give it new life. I mowed with it a few years, but was thinning the herd and wanted it to stay in the family, so offered it back to my brother-in-law on trade. I got his John Deere 214 which I plan to sell this spring.
I had to weld up all mounting holes, then re-drill. All linkages were worn & needed work too. Engine was good when I 1st traded, but lost the rod dipper & nearly tossed the rod, so got a rebuild. Had to replace the deck, which I had one off an MF14 which is the IDENTICAL shell....just use Allis bracketry. Then I changed the brake pedal to pedal hydro control. The former hand hydro lever got shortened & now serves as parking brake.
Here's some pics "before":
Here are a few pics of changing her to pedal hydro. The pedal I just tacked a temp sheet on for testing.
Here are pics during painting.
Here she sits at local show. She mows like a mad dog & looks good to boot. Glad I restored this "family tractor"! I made the decals too, and these were the hardest to date! All colors have to be put on separately. Lining them up was a beast!
