Allis Chalmers WCThe Allis Chalmers WC is a 2WD row-crop tractor manufactured by Allis Chalmers in West Allis, Wisconsin, USA from 1933 to 1948. The second generation was manufactured from 1938 to 1948.

The Allis Chalmers WC is equipped with one of two engines: a 3.3 L (201.0 cu·in) four-cylinder distillate engine or a 3.3 L (201.0 cu·in) four-cylinder gasoline engine and a non-synchronized gear type transmission with 4 forward and 1 reverse gear.

The tractor could be equipped with the following engines:

  • Allis-Chalmers (distillate). It is a 3.3 L, 3,294 cm2, (201.0 cu·in) four-cylinder natural aspirated engine with 102.0 mm (4.02 in) of the cylinder bore and 102.0 mm (4.02 in) of the piston stroke. The compression ratio rating is 4.2:1. This engine produced 18.2 PS (13.4 kW; 18.0 HP) at 1,300 rpm of drawbar output power.
  • Allis-Chalmers (gasoline). It is a 3.3 L, 3,294 cm2, (201.0 cu·in) four-cylinder natural aspirated gasoline engine. The cylinder bore is 102.0 mm (4.02 in) and the piston stroke is 102.0 mm (4.02 in). The compression ratio rating is 5.0:1. This engine produced 18.2 PS (13.4 kW; 18.0 HP) at 1,300 rpm of drawbar output power.

The Allis Chalmers WC is equipped with manual steering, differential hand-operated mechanical drum brakes, an open operator station, and 56.8 liters (15 US gal.; 12.5 Imp. gal) fuel tank.
