allis chalmers garden tractors

Recommended Posts


Bought a Simplicity Yeoman 627 today. The guy told me that the Allis Chalmers tractor that was equivalent to it had a Tecumseh engine. I didn't know Allis used Techumsch engines and cannot find the Allis Chalmers equivalent number can someone tell me the model I am looking for? And if Allis did use Techumsch engines? Thanks

I have two Allis tractors, a T816, about a 1982, and a B206E, about a 1971, both have original Briggs engines. These are both vertical shaft engines, one a 6 hp, one a 16 hp opposed twin.

Simplicity never used Tecumseh engines on on any of the "legacy" small frame vertical singles like for the 616,627, 707, 727, 728, 738 tractors. Both Tecumseh and Briggs were neck & neck with fighting for the market share back in the "day" with standardized motor mounting and crank dimension specs to interchange. So it's not surprising that some P.O. stuck a Tec engine on this tractor, just "because".

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
