Recommended Posts

Im gonna be buying and Allis Chalmers 912-6 and wanted to know if its a good price. It has a rebuilt 16hp Kohler with an 18hp cam, 2hours on it, New paint and decals, 42" deck, new tires, and electric lift. All for $500

The 18hp cam is a slightly different grind and is said to give the engine more torque. Several years ago I was into tractor pulling and that was a quick and easy way for guys to get more power out of there tractor. My only concern would be additional heat build up in the engine but doubt that this cam would cause a significant difference. Dan

I took it for a test drive and it's great! I do garden tractor pulling and from what I was told the 18hp cam gives the valves more lift which = more power. So I take it this thing should mow pretty good :D

      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
