I would like to buy a couple of knife heads.  I have a couple of 80R mowers in need of new knife heads and the rivets to attach.

The card system is the one I remember from my Father's Dealership. I still recall a Blockman and Pop spending several days setting up the parts department. Carefully painting the numbers on the bins and entering the items on the Parts Cards.
Did you get the parts catalogues?
Wonder what happened to all that. Lots of time outstanding memories.
Just a quick reply.
Will look at this again more carefully to digest all you have.
Outstanding find.
I remember at one of our Mid Atlantic Allis Chalmers Club meetings standing behind a the parts catalogues and parts index cards. Old Fashoned but worked
Good Luck!

Hey Alex,

I know this is an old thread now but thought I'd respond to a couple things.  Don Walter is my grandpa.  I found this post when I googled the name of the business back then.  Over the years, it was Walter's Garage, then Walter's Agri-Center, and finally Walter's of Rio Creek.

He was also very excited to have found someone to buy the parts who wanted to keep the old Allis' running...rather than someone buying them for scrap price.

I got a little more background from him tonight on the phone.  He couldn't remember some of the dates exactly but has a calendar with all of them on.

In the early to mid-1960's, he already had the business when a New Holland dealer in Algoma closed and a farmer friend convinced him to get into the implement business so they'd have a local place to buy parts.  When the dealer who sold Allis-Chalmers and Minneapolis Moline retired, he picked up those lines.

The cards that you reference actually originally came from the Allis dealer in Kewaunee when my grandpa bought their stock.  That was about 1975.  He's thinking that it was 1978 when he was dropped as a dealer.  The dealer up in Sturgeon Bay was the biggest in the area and they kept the Allis contract.  Fortunately for us, the owner of that dealership up in Sturgeon Bay is a great guy and we could continue to buy parts through him and do shop work in Rio Creek for quite some time.

Any complete snap coupler latches? Prefer the heavy duty ones.
