The HD-5 had been powered by a 2-cylinder, 38 horsepower GM and was a remarkably versatile little machine, so Allis-Chalmers management had high hopes for the new HD Initially powered by a 4-cylinder Allis-Chalmers Buda model D engine rated at 57 flywheel horsepower, the new machine was immediately embraced by contractors, loggers and the agricultural sector alike and bywhen Allis-Chalmers began to upgrade its track type tractor line, it had sold over 13, examples of the HD-6!
A change to the fuel injection system was made inreplacing the original Buda Lanova type fuel injection pump with a Bosch inspired design that metered the fuel more accurately resulting in more horsepower, reduced fuel consumption, easier starting and cleaner burning.
This engine was known as the series and it produced 52 horsepower in naturally aspirated form.
To gain a better understanding of these different HD-6s, as Allis-Chalmers did not always differentiate well between models creating some confusion, here is a short summary of the main models. Although we are focusing on the HD-6 dozer in this feature, mention must also be made of the track type loader variant that was based on the HD-6, the model HD-6G. This was also a very highly regarded machine and will feature in a future article. Allis-Chalmers pulled the plug on HD-6 production not long after its final integration with Fiat, but the machine left a lasting legacy and many are still in use although its ranks are thinning a bit due to the scarcity of parts.
Of conventional track type tractor layout, the HD-6E for this review was powered by an Allis-Chalmers series diesel engine rated at 69 flywheel horsepower and connected, via a multiple disc oil clutch, to a 5-speed sliding gear manual transmission, which was also manufactured by Allis-Chalmers.
A 5-roller track frame with 1 carrier roller per side was pinned through the rear final drive housing and joined at the front by an equaliser bar, which allowed approximately 28 degrees of oscillation.
A small instrument panel was slightly offset to the right hand side and a deeply cushioned seat was provided for the operator. Some models of the HD-6E had adjustable seating but this was usually an optional extra on other versions of the machine.
One of the other nice features of the HD-6 was the excellent visibility it provided to both front and rear. This was built in from the very first production machines with a tapered hood, sloping fuel tank and operator seat placement. Just about anything could be mounted on, pushed in front of, or drawn behind an HD-6! Lighting sets, canopies, cabs rare in NZagricultural conversion packages were all provided in-house to equip the HD-6 for customer needs.
Allis-Chalmers HD-6s were very popular in New Zealand and were sold from one end of the country to the other. Ripper equipped machines were not too common but there were quite a few delivered set up to tow small scrapers such as the CPC-6, Caterpillar No. This is a bit of a travesty really considering the number of these machines that were manufactured.

Buda Engine Co.
With the limited resources and timeframe I have, I can't seem to find the date when the Buda 6BD engines appeared. I have several diesel catalogs from the WWII era with Buda diesel listed and the doesn't appear in any to I know several ag manufacturers used them, Cockshutt included, starting about that time and before AC owned the company. I don't know for sure, but it appears they were parent bore engines up to the time AC worked them over. By the time the WD diesel appeared late in '54, it had been converted to a wet-sleeve design, still making ci.
The first appearance I see for the D was in the D and the bore and stroke increases are obvious. Mainly I am trying to plot the introduction of the 6BD by Buda, confirm that it was a parent bore, then confirm that AC immediately did the "wet-cylinder-ectomy" and reintroduced it as a wet sleeve power plant forbore and stroking it for to make the The Buda engine in the Cockshutt 30 was exactly like the except it was a 4 cylinder and it was wet sleeve,the in the Cockshutt 40 was wet sleeve the in the Cockshutt 50 was the same in bore and stroke as the but used a larger cylinder hole and had no sleeves.
Allis-Chalmers farm equipment dealers had been using wet sleeves in their gas engines since in the WC tractor. To expect Customers and Dealers to now accept a new diesel engine that required boring the block at overhaul time would have been in my thinking unacceptable.
So, A-C reworked an existing engine into a wet sleeve design. They owned the Company, so they could do whatever they wanted.
I know I've seen old Buda Service literature and am sure that is the history of the B-series engines, gas and diesel. The sleeve lip was hardly enough as it was in the D nat asp version, but the turbocharger saw to it the sleeves couldn't stay up very long and got pounded downwards allowing head gaskets to promptly fail.
In the case of the D, a bored block with a turbo would have actually been a better deal I think I read where Allis started using wet sleeves by with the intro of the model E. Nothing to do with Buda so maybe useless info but that is all I know. Some interesting info but not what I was looking for. I'm trying to discover when the 6BD engine was introduced.
I have a gap in my Buda literature and documentation from '48 to It doesn't appear in a '48 catalog, nor a '45, '42 or ' Interestingly, some Cockshutt materials indicate the 6BD was wet sleeved in the late '52 era. The same materials indicate the was wet speeded as early as Also, it states the 6BD that appeared in the Cockshutt 40 for was wet sleeved. The info I have is thatAC seal the deal on Buda in November of '53, so if wet sleeving was done to a parent bore in time for the intro of the WD diesel, it was a world's speed record development.
Anyway, this is all from the Cockshutt club's book, which is the only thing I have found so far that sheds any light at all. It's most likely correct but rather than rehash incorrect information, I'd rather verify with a second source. I know the WD diesel was wet sleeved. All the diesel and gas engines used in the Cockshutt 40 tractors were wet sleeve engines the only thing I can see when AC started using the D in the WD45D was to make the water pump opening on the head a little larger.Allis Chalmers.

That was a Buda engineand I've heard guys talking about them in the Gleaners, but I don't know if its the same one.
All your tune up stuff should be at Napabring the Delco Dist with you to be sure Look at the Gleaner post right below!! Perfect timing!! If it is a Buda engine like I am betting, or AC's later version. The stuff you need will be in these applications. D19 gas, as stated I think some Gleaners used this engine and Cockshutt used that same engine in the 40, Also a larger version in the When it was a Buda engine the model number was 6BD Correction it would be a 6B as a gasser.
The diesel was the 6BD Thank you both for the info. It has been most helpful. The G was used on A series Gleaners.Allis-Chalmers WD Kubota Diesel Engine Swap
I have one I was to put a generator on. These engine were use on the C-II Gleaner. I have a LP fueled version of the GBuda Engine was founded in by George Chalender in Buda, Illinoisto make equipment for railways. Later based in Harvey, IllinoisBuda from manufactured engines for industrial, truck, and marine applications.
Early Buda engines were gasoline fueled. Later, diesel engines were introduced, utilizing proprietary Lanova cylinder head designs, injection pumps and nozzles. These were known as Buda-Lanova diesel engines. Buda Engine Company was acquired by Allis-Chalmers in Buda began by manufacturing railroad maintenance of way tools and equipment, switches, switch stands and signal devices.
By the end of the century, Buda was producing a line of hand cars and velocipedes, and eventually moved into the motorcar business also. Velocipedes were equipped with single-cylinder, air-cooled engines and motorcars were equipped with 2-cylinder opposed "pancake" air-cooled engines.
The motorcar production was later either sold or licensed to Fairbanks-Morsewhich continued production. Truck, tractor, bus, and marine engines continued in production by Buda who eventually was taken over by Allis-Chalmers. Buda's engines were water-cooledin-line four, six, or eight-cylinder models. Buda advertisements in the early s proclaimed Buda as "Pioneer of the cast-in-block" method.
Their engines featured long stroke, enclosed valves, noiseless timing gearsand self-contained oiling system. The four-cylinder Buda gasoline engine was favored by many early truck manufacturers, who were converting horse-drawn vehicles to self-propelled models. In a hp version was fitted to the American-built M light tanka licensed copy of the Renault FT. By the late s, trucks were getting larger and required larger engines, such as Buda's six-cylinder models.
As diesel engines grew in popularity in the s, Buda responded with four and six-cylinder diesel engines. Kenworth's early models — featured Buda four-cylinder gasoline engines as standard equipment. Buda six-cylinder gasoline engines were offered by Kenworth until the late s. From —, California coach operator, El Dorado, re-fitted new four-cylinder White buses with six-cylinder Budas. Buda engines were also used in electric generators, fire pumps, sawmills, cotton gins, and feed mills.Here's a fun project Fun fact is that this is essentially the same block on the outside as the original Buda.
This one even had orange paint and yellow primer under the Cockshutt tan! Thanks for adding me to the group. Found this gen set, looks like the Allis engine may still still be the Buda diesel design like a D Rating of kw would be well over a hp.

Allis Chalmers D19 Diesel making its way up the track.Prior to Allis-Chalmers did not manufacture their own diesel engines, relying mainly on GM for its motive power. This all changed when Allis-Chalmers purchased Buda and began installing them in their tractors suitably re-badged of course.
The HD was a very well designed and balanced tractor with ample power and was highly regarded, especially in forestry applications. All of the first production examples featured a supercharged Allis-Chalmers HDS 6-cylinder diesel engine which put out flywheel horsepower and had a 2-speed torque converter drive transmission. It was not too long before Allis-Chalmers also introduced a power shift transmission as an option. This later became standard.
Allis-Chalmers uprated the engine in to a turbocharged model HDT which produced flywheel horsepower and this was the last of the HD21 engines to use the Lanova fuel injection system. The first of the true Allis-Chalmers engines was introduced inthe horsepower model which remained the standard engine until it was replaced by the more powerful series 2 type in This featured the model II engine rated at horsepower and was completely restyled in the panelwork department, having straight angular lines compared to previous versions of the tractor.
The 21C proved to be the last version of the HD, the type disappearing from the sales catalogue in to be replaced by the short-lived FD It is interesting to conjecture what would have become of Allis-Chalmers if Fiat had not had a controlling interest in them as Allis-Chalmers had always been very innovative and forward thinking company.
It is a pity that they are now relegated to history. As mentioned earlier, the heart of the machine was an A-C branded Buda HDS six cylinder supercharged diesel rated at flywheel horsepower. Final drives were of conventional spur gear type, double reduction, with hydraulically boosted multiple disc steering clutches and contracting band brakes. The track frames held six bottom rollers and two carrier rollers per side and followed conventional tractor design of the time.
Compared to the previous model HD, the operators area had been improved with a much better seat and attention to operator visibility. Allis-Chalmers were the first large tractor manufacturer to introduce a tapered bonnet on their track type tractors for better visibility to the blade. Deeply upholstered seats were always a feature of Allis-Chalmers tractors and the HD21 was no exception.

A small instrument cluster was placed to the right of the steering lever console and this held oil pressure, water temperature, converter temperature and ammeter gauges. Master engine clutch was in the usual position to the operators left and the only items to penetrate the floor decking were the two brake pedals and gearshift lever. Comfort options included an insulated cab with a heater and wipers and various lighting arrangements. Initially, Allis-Chalmers relied on a number of outside suppliers for bulldozer blades, winches, cable controls and rippers.
Ateco and Tractomotive supplied rippers of various types while Pullman-Standard and GarWood supplied the cable controls.
