I am currently restoring an Allis 716H (4-headlight model). I really need to paint the hood, but I don't want to sacrifice the decals unless I can get some replacements. Does anyone know a source for these, and have you used them for this model (or similar) tractor? I would love to have an entire kit, but what is really important to me now is the hood and instrument panel decals. Thanks! James

Hi James, If you can't find any decals,you could use a blow dryer to slowly heat the adhesive and remove/reuse your decals if they are in good condition. The decals will usually come off in tack, but you MUST BE VERY PATIENT and very careful not to stretch or tear the decal. You should have better luck with the hood decals than what you will with the instrument panel decals. Good luck on finding new ones as this would be much easier! PeppyDan

I bet you could have the decals airbrushed and they'd look very close to decals, not to mention you could put another clear coat over the whole thing and protect everything nicely.[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]

You can have almost any decal recreated if you have something to go from, like your old decals. I did so just from the sales literature posted on this site for my Landlord. The issue is the cost which depends a lot on the necessary artwork and layout required. There is a club member named "Uncle Bob" who does this work as well as the source I used: www.nationalreaderboard.com. 1-800-243-6676. You can search discussion for "decals" and find a lot more info on this topic.

As I didn't know of this site yet when I redid my B112 I taped over my decals before I wired it down to bare metal and repainted it. Decals are still in the same condition as when I started, not bad, daon;t match the new paint but Much better than no decals...MPH

Ask any auto body places if they have a heat gun and if they could take the decals off for you. If this is not and option go to a local craft store and ask them if they have a embossing heat This is much like a hair dryer but it gets much hotter and helps ease the tention from the glue. I have done this twice to two diffrent tractors and it turns out nice. While your at the craft store ask them if they have KRYLON SPRAY ADHESIVE All-Pupose #7010. This is what i use and it sticks the deacals down nicly.

      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
