Recommended Posts

Went to the annual Golden Horseshoe Show today and yesterday. It's a steamshow and there's an antique village set up there. THis year they fearued Allis Chalmers. I took the 917 out, the 416S and the case. Somebody asked if the case was for sale, but nobody asked about the allis'es. There were a few small garden tractors there, And I took a whole bunch of pictures. There was also a guy that pulled had 3 Lanz tractors, All with single cylinder 2 cycle deisels. One was 28HP and the other was 60. One guy had a B10 he redid and made it a B18 with a 18HP briggs v-twin. It looked real nice. He also had a Wonderboy 700 restored nice with a sicklebar, and a tiller.

Some cool pics Graham, thanks. Like the rear rims on the 700. Are you sure that case doesn't need a home, don't look like you've done any restoreing to it yet180 or 190 is the case model I'd like to find

I'm glad I finally saw some more Allis'es. There were only 9 garden tractors there, I thought there would be more. For now, I'm gonna run the case as it is, and adapt a simplicity blade and clear snow. I would like to find a 190 too, but I don;t think the guy wanted to sell that one. I like the tires on it:) If I were to restore one, I;d have to restore the 716H. It is in excellent mechanical shape.

I dont really know much about them, since the guy didn't say much, but they look like a nice home-made set. He's done alot to this tractor, he made new driveshaft couplers, added lights, had the seat re-covered, and he's got all the little peices too. It must have taken him ages, but they look way better when you're beside it then when looking at the picture.

Graham, the 190 Case looks like it could pull a house down, really though looking machine for its size. The B18 looks really sharp, especially with the chrome. Thanks for the great pictures.

Ya, you're right I didnt notice until you pointed it out. I dont know what was wrong with it, there were no belts on it, and no s/g. THey lifted the loader onto the trailer and pushed it on. THe paint was good, but the decals were scratched originals.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
