Well the seat looks awful comfy :D. I've always liked these a/c models. It seems to be in good shape for the price, has the potential to be a good little work hoarse. Judging by the way the engine sits I assume shaft drive? I've never messed with the older b&s engines. How would they compare to a kohler? I've watched the price come down all the way from 800$$ over the last couple months. I wouldn't mind having it. And it's actually close! Which usually isn't my thing lol. You don't see a whole lot of these particular models around. Opinions?
Thanks guys.

They are very well built and it has $200 worth of tires on the back. 

 

GO GET IT ALREADY!!!  :thumbs: 

 

They are shaft drive back to a 90 degree gearbox then a short belt to the tranny

The Kohler and Briggs of that era are about the same overall. I grew up on Kohlers, but there were a lot of them around us and they always seem to be as good as the "K"s. We know have about as many B&S as K's.

There is one I looked at today that is not even close to the quality of that one they want $400.00 for here in N. Michigan. I don't know where people here get their estimates for value up here. The Simplicity 5216 is still setting there for $885.00. That Allis is a good looking tractor. Roger.

 Very nice tractor and I would say that all you should have to do is clean the carb., add a battery and maybe clean the points to get her running.

That is the variator handle, for variable ground speed.

Okay, thanks that is what I was thinking. We're these a straight shaft or did they also involve a belt in the tranny?

When the "B" series tractors are working they are great. They are light, fast and powerful(and fun). There are many attachments around for them. The not working may require some work and a little difficulty with the ignition if mice have gotten in. The variator needs to be kept clean and lubed to work right. One of our members picked up a pickup truck load of attachments for free on Sunday. I picked up abunch attachments for under $50 each a couple of months ago. We have plenty of manuals on these in our manuals section. One very important point, These 1960s era AC/Simplicity tractors have alot of parts in common. It is relatively easy to pick up a parts tractor. If it is complete and you want a worker, this seems like a good deal. Good Luck, Rick

 

I modified this because I made a mistake. This is a late version of the B112.
