Typical Hoosier posts lol, lol, lo, now that's three lols, just kidding, I couldn't help it. The guys probably from Ohio, oh no, now I've insulted a whole other state, I'm going downhill fast. All kidding aside, us that post Craigslist ads frequently, have a brain, or both are more adept to giving the what, where, and how much info than some of these scrapper guys that are rounding up vintage stuff from backyards. I know a couple of guys that do that and haul their goodies to the Portland show. About the time I pay 400.00 for a rusty cart is the day I have instructed my best friend to "put me down". Apparently this guy gets 400.00 for carts in Portland, I know one thing for sure, I seriously doubt it's Hoosiers buying them.

Called that guy. Includes all of what is on trailer there. four tractors, two stick and two hydros, decks, blowers, extra engine. Downtown belive it or not.  Now you guys need my address to send me money?  I don't have quite enough to get them, need some help. He'll even dilever as it for little gas money, how nice!  Man, I gotta try to get these!  Have to set outside tho, garage is full!

I have never seen any of the 18 horse models in person...the AC seems much more scarce than the Simplicity version, which was the 7018. I see those from time to time on CL, but they never run.

Tainted, were these the infamous OHV with belt drive twins?  The sleeves always dropped down out of the aluminum case on those and caused havoc. They were really bad design. I've had one of those. See lots of parts engines at swaps, but all have that sleeve issue. I know Simplicity had those in that Special Anniversary Blue and Chrome model. Too bad that nice tractor had to  have that engine. They sell for Big Bucks when found. IF that is the engine, might be needing to change out a couple?? Fella said some run! I'ld like to get them, but money isn't there now after x-mas and heating season. Durn!
