I have always liked the look of these GT's- just not sure where I am going to put it. Says no spark so may be a challenge for me to get it running.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410054987.862764.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410054997.452578.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410055005.573573.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410055014.462397.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410055022.938700.jpg

I attribute the no spark problem to an apparent lack of a battery.

I bet that if you polish the points/replace the condenser/replace the spark plug, you'll have fire.

Was that the one on E-bay? Unless there was a lot of bidding at the end, you got a great deal!

Should be an easy fix. I thought about it, but way to far for me.

Yes it was the one on eBay. $177.50 I thought it was a pretty good deal for its condition. Have no idea what is correct or incorrect on this tractor. But it was pretty! :thumbs:

The only non-original part I see is the fuel shutoff. What's the white spot above and left of the choke knob? That's where the electric lift switch would be.

Don't know. Guess I will find out when I pick it up this week. I don't know much about these Homelites. How well do they mow?

I had a T15 with the 48" deck. It mowed better than a:

Husqvarna zero turn, Jacobsen Turfcat, JD 212 or 318, JD 185, Bolens G152, and was equal to a JD 322 with the 50 deck.

Its built by Simplicity and they mow very well. I have a large herd of GTs. The AC/Simplicitys are a snappy and fun tractor. They are second only to Bolens in number of attachments that were available. You did real well. Look up the flip cart that they had. You will want one to go with your T - 10. Good Luck, Rick

So I am doing research, I believe it was an Allis built GT. But it shows a gear driven not hydro driven tractor?

Good to know they mow well.

I do need a back up mower, since none of my BH have a deck on them, so maybe it can be my back up. (Got to justify my purchase).

Figuring its a manual lift because of the long handle on the left??? Or could it be both manual and electric?

Yep, it's manual lift. I wasn't sure if all the models came with the hole punched out for the electric lift switch.

That one was built by Allis Chalmers. It has a blue right hand discharge deck, it has large round headlights instead of the dual twin lights, and the grille is wider at the bottom than the top. And it has electric clutched pto pulley out the front of the engine.

Here is a Simplicity built Homelite:
