I had to find out. I think with power steering that could be made to work, don't you? sm03 -Don

I think it would work OK without power steering if you could make it fit... That weight difference is nothing compared to hanging a snowblower or HD snow/dirt blade way out in front of the front axle. They list for over $4K, I think, so someone could get a good deal here... Here's a 26.5HP at Northern Tool for $4695 http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_405826_405826

Don't know if Jay did this one, but here's a pic of a VW powered Allis 716.

If you do it, be sure to post pictures here! I do see some minor engineering problems to work out. On the plus side, I'm pretty sure you won't need front weights at all anymore. I was thinking more in terms of the 31HP Vanguard, but hey... Maybe I should rephrase the question to "what is the largest engine that's been put in and the tractor still used for work? (vs show)" LOL Can you picture a Simplicity drive shaft after a V8 has applied torque to it? -Don

No power train issues? By upping the HP by 2.5 times one would think if anyone would have em you would.

This isn't a simple but it is a little bit bigger than the VW repower! http://photos.bravenet.com/268/717/785/8/C1BA28B0E6.jpg

      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
