First Post.
I recently acquired my first tractor. A 1949 Allis Chalmers B. The rear rim needs replacing due to rust. Any advice on how to remove the rim would be appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum! If it is a standard B rim there should be four blocks bolted to the wheel center that holds the rim in place. Two or more more of these should have eccentric bolts that push the blocks out to tighten on the rim (these will have a cross on the head). Loosen the nuts on the backside and turn these bolts 180 degrees and they should loosen. The rim should then come off. Be careful if the tire is full of fluid. If it is a loop rim remove all four bolts and remove the rim. There may be shims between the blocks and the rim if they are somewhat worn. Feel free to ask any questions on here about anything you don't clearly understand.

Thank you so much. It’s a work in progress so I’m sure you’ll hear from me again.

Some Pics
The 2 white marked bolt are eccentric bolts, the other 2 are regular.
 
Clamp on left, Eccentric bolt on right.
 
 
Loop style rim uses regular bolts.

As Hubert said, be careful if the tires are full of fluid. The fluid adds a lot of weight & makes the tires difficult to handle. Don't get hurt.

Hey congrats on the B. Lots of good people here to help. Download the manual from Gerald J. If you have the eccentric bolts there is a special method of using them on the rim. Good luck.

Transmission fill is on the left (clutch) side. It looks like a pipe plug and is mounted on an angle. It should be full of gear oil.

If you decide to drain it, there are three drain plugs; one under the PTO, one under the differential and one under the transmission. They are 3/8" square. A 3/8" ratchet works well.

Good Morning everyone. I have another question for the group. I’ve noticed since getting my allis that every time I start her, she seems alittle weaker every time to the point of yesterday being dead in the water. No cranking what so ever. She is a 6 volt. I don’t know if the battery is bad or something else. I can push start her with no problems. Where should I start?

Probably dead battery, 6v batteries dont seem to last very long. Could be a bad battery or its not charging the battery. That could stem from bad generator/alternator, or the tractor isnt running long enough at high enough rpm to induce charging. Try to get it started and let it run at a higher rpm (1000-1500) and see if that makes a difference. next step if that doesnt work is a new battery, or do some tests to see if charging circuit works.

Did someone stick a 12 volt battery in it and it is a 6 volt system? If so it will never charge up. If it is a 6 volt battery, then it is not being charged or is junk or both. Same if it has been converted to 12 volt. A simple corroded connection, bad wire, or not enough RPM to start a one wire converted charging system may be the problem. A lot of things to check.

 1. check battery voltage it should be6 at the very minimum
 2. charge the battery and have it load tested.
 3. while the tractor is running, check voltage at the generator, it should be 7.5 volts or there abouts.
 4 if generator output is lower than 7 volts, ground the field wire and see if it goes up.
