I would like to nominate my 1981 Simplicity 7150. I bought this tractor for $100 in a back yard with weeds and tress growing into it.   It was a mess! It came with a LOT of implements and all the books and manuals!. (Plow, snowplow, grader blade, rototiller, cultivator, wagon and disk) My favorite out of all of them was the rototiller because without it I would have never had my garden. (Missing some of the 3 point hitch).  But anyway, I had to put a new carb on her because the original carb was destroyed! So, luckily I had another carb, I threw her together to she what she did. She ran alright, but had to fix the electric lift on her. After I re-built it, she still had problems. She would always stall, me and my dad thought the wiring was bad. But, it turned out it was just a voltage regulator.  :thumbs: So, I re-placed that and she ran soo well ever since.  So, a few months later, I decided to throw the rototiller on and see what the ole girl could do. 

 
She did well! 
 
 
I would really like if she won! She's a hard working tractor and has been through a lot! She ain't the prettiest looking thing, but she's a great working thing! Oh, I'm also the 3rd owner of her. I have also done some things here and there to make her look better. I swapped out the sterring wheel because the old one was junk! 

 

 

I also did a tire swap 

Overall, she looks great!

  Nope, the book says its a 7150. Kinda odd, I agree. Ian.

What book are you looking at? Can you post a picture of the cover, also Simplicty used model numbers and had other numbers on the tractor, wondering if that is the Case, You have a 7100 series tractor with a with a Kohler engine, The origianl decals on the tractor would have said 7114 if it was 14hp or 7112 if it was a 12hp etc. but the sticker on the frame would have said 16907150 maybe, sometimes on the manual Simplicity only put the last four of the model number, but the tractor was sold by the name on the decals along with a name like Sovereign, Landlord, Baron

 You may be right on that. But, I'm looking at the manual(s) that came with it. It says its a 7150. But then again you may be right. Ian.

What engine is on it? the engine will have a decal with serial number and spec number I can tell alot from those numbers. Also there should be a small sticker on the tunnel cover between the seat and dash or on the side of the frame with a number that starts with 169XXXX I can also tell from that. I've been collecting and restoring Allis/Simplicity tractors for some time and have never heard that number before on any of their mowers or garden tractos. I went and looked at their site and 7150 isn't even in the model number of a 7100 series tractor. What horsepower is it? From 1981 through 1984 Simplicity made, models 7110, 7112, 7114, 7116, 7117(twin cylinder) 7119 (twin cylinder), and 7790 (diesel). They also made Allis models, 910, 912, 914, 916, 917(twin cylinder), 919(twin cylinder), and 920 (diesel). Just trying to help identify your tractor

 I can tell you that it looks identical to the Allis Charmers 914. It is a 14 horse. With what you wrote, it might be a 7114. Thanks!

Chalmers, not Charmers, lol The old man would turn over in his grave  :rolling: I believe it is a 7114, in that case if it is it is fairly rare, Simplicity/Allis did not produce near as many 14hp tractors as 12s and 16s, I have no idea why, it's a GREAT enngine.
