My father asked me to keep an eye out for a garden tractor that he can use to grade is gravel driveway.  I found super deal ($50) on an Allis Chalmers 716 with front blade and electric lift (lift does control the blade).  This past weekend, he and I went on a road trip to pick it up.

 

Now I am looking for some manuals for him.

 

In our GTT forum manuals section I only found an Operators guide.

 

Does someone have a Parts Manual and Service manual that they wouldn't mind sharing with me?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

- Mark

Also, does anyone know what year this tractor is?  I will get the serial number tag information soon.

Thank you Roger for the suggestion.  Here are a few more pictures.

The tractor wasn't running when we picked it up, however with a clean-up of the points, spark plug, and coil terminals, it fired right up and was operational.

 

The steering linkage is tight and electric lift works.

Looks like a good tractor. I like the rear ags. If you look on the shroud on the engine you should be able to find the Model #, Type # and Code#. If you get those we could tell what year it is, if it is original to the tractor. I didn't see the first picture sorry. Roger.

You may find a manual if you search for Simplicity 7016H, which was their version of the Allis 716H.  The H denotes Hydrostatic, as usual.

Thank you Stubby for the link.  I was able to download.  It looks like the Simplicity 7016H is very similar to the AC716.  However, the AC has a Kohler 16 and the Simplicity has a Briggs 16.  Otherwise, it looks to be the same parts and all.

 

Thank you again.

some of the tractor manuals dont really get into the engine itself, all the manuals I've found for my Allis 716H were of their Simplicity counterparts and were the same ecpt for the engine, and some of the electricl system. I converted My Simplicity to a Kohler 16, since the  model numbder on the frame indicates it was an Allis, but the hood engine and fender pan were Simplicity, I call it a Simplicity 7016HK. Thanks Stubby
