Yesterday after visiting a friends barn and seeing this old tractor in person I was shown the original manual for it,the owner agreed to let me post it here in the manual section.This was a large 3HP Simplicity with cast iron grille and hood the Briggs engine had a flat belt drive pulley with really large rubber tires.The engine was a 1944 so it is likely original to the tractor,never fails to impress me just how big the older walkers were.I live in Southern Ontario and think it would be awesome if there was a annual show were a person could take their old units out and do some plowing and cultivating. Like a Plowing Match but just for the old smaller tractors.Here is what it looked like,sorry no real pictures it was buried in a dark barn.I have seen several really big old units lately like the large Bolens with steering clutches and the largest of the 3 sizes of Planet Jr. tractors. Be great to see them run side by side again !

That's a very hard to find machine, when complete with the hood. I beleive that's a model C. If I were to bring home a walk behind, that would be one I'd love to make room for.
