Kerry Morris wrote on Monday, January 23, 2012 (PST):I m nearing complete restorataion on a 1964, D-15 Series 11 Allis Chalmers. It was all there but in rough shape after recently retrieving it from my father-in-law. Ive rebuild everything on it and have returned it to its original condition in every respect. The project has been great fun even though I have invested more money than its probably worth. I grew up working with old ACs in Missouri as a kid so this project was a step back in time. Once done, the tractor should really be nice and show very well.

J.R. wrote on Monday, October 19, 2009 (PDT):I agree with J.B. Bailey and all others. I grew up on my grandpa s farm riding the old but powerful Allis. His 1966 D-15 Series II was my faveriote and still is to this day,along with his 1964 D-10 Series I. Both are still plowing the fields and still getting up hay today. I am the second owner. My grandpa gave me these tractors to keep the spirt alive. So I could past them on to my children.

Been trying to find a D-15 in Iowa for awhile. Several for sale on Tractorhouse in Michigan and Ohio I would buy in a minute but too far away to inspect and haul.

Charles Clark wrote on Monday, April 14, 2003 (PDT):Back in 1961 or 1962 I tried out a new D-14 with 3-14s and it did quite well. So well that in alfalfa sod it just picked the front end off the ground and kept going having to be steered with the brakes. That was in some pretty heavy ground. I could never get together on a price with that dealer, but in 1963 I bought a new D-15 ser II and what a tractor,we wore it out by working it to do work should have been with a lot larger tractor. After the ring and pinion went for the third time we bought a D 19 Diesel. Many years later a D-14 has become part of our family. Itis for sale now that we realy don't have a lot for it to do. My phone # is 989-842-5279 We live in the middle of Michigan. Charles Clark

Charles Parker wrote on Thursday, November 28, 2002 (PST):I have the D15 Seriews II that my dad had when he died in 1977. I found it and bought back it 2 years ago. The person who bought it after dads death did not take very good care of it. A lot of rust. I have the motor un-stuck and it runs good. The Air Cleaner is on the right side, it has a dry filter, it is rusted out and I am looking for one that is in good shape. Plans are to put the D15 back like new, as near as possible. I would appreciate any information.
JOHN BREITMEIER SR. wrote on Monday, November 18, 2002 (PST):My dad bought a D-15 new in 1965 and used/abused it for many years.We lived in an area of green and red,and the little AC was laughed at,until they saw her out-run any color her size.She'd pull 3-16s in clay ground,10/11"deep all day long at 5mpr.Wish pop would have never sold her.
VICTOR DELGADO wrote on Wednesday, February 20, 2002 (PST):My Grandfather was an Allis Chalmers man and had owned several before he bought this D15 series II in 1971. Approx 1 yr later he had a stroke and was unable to use it anymore.. It sat in the barn for 15 yrs never being moved. I bought it from him along with quite a few implements to go with it for a very small price. I "unstuck" the motor and did some minor repairs to get it in great running condition within a couple of weeks of purchasing it.. I still use it to this day about 7 yrs after buying it.. What a great tractor to own.. and the look on my grandfathers face the first time he heard it crank up after 15+ years is priceless!

This year my father & son worked with me to restore the tractor with AC paint and decals. Recently, a problem has developed in the torque shaft area. The tractor has been broken down and I'm in need of shaft assembly parts. It's a challenging project but, thanks to the help of an Allis addicted mechanic maybe we'll make it with a some luck. If you know a D14 or D15 that is being parted, let me know. mikej1767 at aol.com -or- 615 443 8633.

jim anderson wrote on Sunday, November 28, 1999 (PST):in 1963 my dad bought a D15 SERIES II with all the attachments.it was the first of many tractors he owned through the years and also my favorite.dad traded the D15 in the late 70`s. my affection for that tractor has lasted for all these years.i finally told myself "i had to have one". i searched for two years to find the right one. i finally found the one for me. a 1966 , 2200hr. 1 owner, like new D15 SERIES II. the best part was picking the tractor up and seeing how excited my 69 year old dad was, just like one 8 year old kid was in 1963.
Allen McIntosh wrote on Monday, November 15, 1999 (PST):4 years ago I found a D-15 Series II Industrial with a TS-500 Loader and Hoe. To my surprise it had a Deisel motor in it. The book said it was a Buda. During resteration I pulled the shuttel shift clutch pack out. I have a old manua that showes the procedure for rebuild and shiming the clutch pack. It can be shimmed and inspected on the D-15 through a side plate on the transmission. Contact me and I can scan the manual and send it to you If you would like. Any one out there have a starter for a d-15 deisel for sale, or starter drive.
jennifer harvey wrote on Sunday, November 14, 1999 (PST):I found my D-15 in North Idaho for sale at the end of someone's driveway. I bought it a week before starting a new relationship. Two and a half years later, the only thing my man and I argue about is if we ever get married and then divorce--who gets the tractor!oh,and we just bought a D-17 with loader arms and detachable backhoe...anybody know anything about this tractor's shuttle shift?.........symptom; barely wants to move forward or reverse when moving shuttle shift lever
Larry Anderson wrote on Thursday, June 03, 1999 (PDT):I fondly remember the day we took delivery of this D-15. I must have been 12 at the time. This tractor was "little brother to our "bigger" D-17. Dad and I would often head to a field and "double up" on the field work. I always remember the D-15 being able to outrun the D-17. D-17 was pulling a 3/16 plow, the D-15 would go a bit faster pulling a 3/14 plow. It also would easily run away from the D-17 in hi or low road gear. The hand clutch made it such an easy tractor to manuever. Wish I still had that tractor!!!
