I just purchased a Homelite T7 and I understand from the people I have talked to so far it is very rare. I would like to find some literature about this little tractor and have not been able to so far. All I know about it is that it was made by AC/Simplicity or possibly Jacobsen Ford. It is in great shape and has been garaged all its life. Any information anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

:welcome::nothingtoadd: Well, maybe.
I haven't any info, but maybe someone does. Pics would be nice. Got some #'s for it? What kind of engine? #'s? Is it horizontal or vertical shaft?

Welcome brookslion1, I believe i have a owners manual and possibly a parts breakdown of that model. I would be willing to send you copies of these for the cost of shipping and the paper used. I believe you can also go to manuals on line and get them also. If that doesn't work email me at daddyshamradio@hotmail.com T-7 Homelite is a good little tractor. They made T-7, T-8, T-10, T-12, (rare T-13), T-15 and T-16. Roger

I will get numbers later and try to post some pictures. I think this is a 1974 or 75 yr model. Do you know who the manufacturer was?

From your description it was probably Allis Chalmers. Pictures will help. Roger

Yes, they were basically like the 300 & 400 series Allis Chalmers.

Edited to add: Actually, the only one I've seen was like the Allis 300/400, but googling pics show other models were identical to Simplicity models.
