Does anybody know anything about these tractors. I can purchase one with deck, lug tires but no motor for 100.00. Are they worth anything running? Are they a tough tractor? What would you compare them to?

The Simplicitys are nice tractors. Like Chuck said if the ag tires are in good shape it is worth the asking price just for the tires. I am not real familiar with the Simplicitys though and wouldn't be able to put a true value on it. I would probably still make an offer of $75 if I wanted to get it.

Is it a gear or hydraulic unit? The Allis I have is older, but seems a solid built unit (maybe a little unwieldy to run) but ok other than that...

The engines were special built for these, as most of them had a Thru shaft on the engine (older ones at least) and they were shaft drive on the flywheel side. If the engine is gone, is the bolt on adapter at least with the unit?
