It is a large frame tractor but is not a Simplicity large Frame. Those here commenting on the large frame tractor are specifically referring to the Simplicity built tractors. The 300 and 400 series tractors were a response of Allis Chalmers to an Antitrust court order which required the A-C owned Simplicities and the A-C branded tractors to be manufactured in separate facilities and to not have any interchangeable implements. When the antitrust legislation was repealed in late 1974. A-C closed their Lexington plant and went back to producing both A-C's and Simplicities out of the Port Washington plant. Aside from the power plants, some minor sheet metal deferences and Paint they were the same tractors with interchangeable implements.

I would not argue that point with you but the intent was for there to be no cross brand interchangeability between Simplicity and A-C in the early 70's. Since you own a 416 you know that there are many familiar basic design traits but the 300 & 400 series tractors are very different from any Allis before or after.

      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
