Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors



Recommended Posts


Hello Everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking here for some time and have learned a wealth of information from the good folks in this club.

These are my 2 machines. Lots of hard work and care getting them up to speed. 2000 Sovereign 18ohc and 1991? Deutz Allis 917H .

The DA pic is fresh from yesterday dispatching a bunch of pumpkins in the JD 80 cart!

Hope to spend some more time here and get to know you all better!  Ken

Both tractors look super clean....very nice. Not sure if you have done the “fix” on the Simplicity to keep the triad running strong? They sure are pretty!

Welcome to the addiction Ken and wow, nice lineup. As jimmystractor referenced, there is some good info here regarding necessary modifications of the Triad engine written by Al Eden (aka Al). Looking forward to seeing you (and your equipment) around.

I can email you a document containing just about every Al Eden post on these engines & pictures of what I've done to mine to keep your OHC Triad happy.  If they are happy, they sure are smooth & fuel efficient.  PM me if interested.

You have the first step down.  Keep them clean.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
