I bought this tractor at an auction several years ago. I just really liked the looks of this model and had been looking for one for a while and found this one. It was kind of dirty but after a good cleaning, new tires and painting the rims the old girl looks pretty good for being an original condition 1968. I put 4.00x8 tri ribs on the front and made a set of 11 inch wide rear rims by taking 4 seven inch wide rims, cutting off one side of the bead and welding 2 rims back together for each side. I put 26x12x12 ag tires on it. If you notice there are no bolts in the outer center flange. I just wanted to be different and see if anyone looked at it close enough to wonder how the rims were bolted on.

That is an awfully clean original tractor Mike. I agree it's too good a shape to bother restoring. Original paint in that good a condition is rare! And wide rear tires ALWAYS look good! I almost just typed "all wide rears look good", but that's just not true! LOL

Djnks, What parts are you looking for? The Briggs engine parts are available at a Briggs dealer although I have heard some parts are getting harder to find. The tractor was built by Simplicity manufacturing and a lot of the parts are still available from Simplicity dealers.

I'm just trying to get it running again, it sat for 3 years @ my Dad's and all it needed THEN was a battery, points & condenser. Now I've got a rusty gas tank, carb that was full of deposits. Dad & I managed to break the breathing tube( the tiny one inside the carb & mangle the set screw that's below it. Not a good day. I have a mechanic friend looking for another carb for me. The only body parts I think I'll need is the grill. And tires of course, unless I manage to mangle something else. I don't think I have a Simplicity dealer local anymore. Thanks for the reply it was very helpful.

Mike,
Great job on the wheels, & rims! Looks bad arss!

I have a '69 B110 that I've had for 32 years. Its been an incredible work horse. For 10 years I mowed, snow plowed a 200' drive, graded dirt on occasion, used the tiller for a big garden, & often used a trailer for firewood, & dirt & mulch. The last 20 years it's been mostly snow plowing about 800' of 20' wide private drive & drive way. I also have a JD 318 with a 52" mower, & 54" hydro snow plow at my shop. Personally, I like the B110 better for snow because of the limited slip rear axle on the B110. The Simplicity plow is built like a tank, way stronger than the JD plow.

tractormike - Nice Allis you have there. However, I do have one question. Where do you place your feet, where are the foot rests? Am I just not seeing them in your picture?
