Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Let the fun begin

Recommended Posts


Just today I came home with 10 engines that I hope to get running.  2 tecumsehs and the rest Briggs flat heads ranging from 3 to 10 horsepower.   Not a great pictures, but what would some of these be worth?

Depends on how much you are willing to take, as to how much they are worth. A running engine is, of course, worth more than non running. Agree with the gear reduction. I gave $25 for one last year, running. You might part a couple out to get your money back if you do not want the engine for anything you have. I keep a lot of spare parts for personal machines, so sometimes pick an engine up for spare parts, not caring if it runs or not.

As for the Tecumseh engines. Do you have a buddy needing an unusual boat anchor?

I’ll try my best to get them running.  My family farms and we would like to use the one for a hydraulic pump we’re going to make.  The one tecumseh is an electric start from a cub I have been told. As for the other the carburetor was knocked off by the former owners son playing around and was a running engine.

      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
