So the short list on this thing are:
  • reseat valves & adjust clearance
  • clean / rebuild carb
  • clean / seal fuel tank with new fuel line/filter
  • new head gasket
  • tighten-up the recoil

The only thing screwed-up on the tractor itself...is that there are 2 busted bolts that secure the transmission to the chassis. I'm grateful that the tire isn't seized to the shaft...extract those bolts and she'll be good to go.



I'll do a full restore on this thing...eventually.

This machine was probably made by Simplicity.

Looks to be in pretty darn good shape. It'll be fun to follow your work on Allis.

The owner's manual didn't come up on Simplicity's site and nothing on Jack's Small Engine, using 2029956. Might have to call them to find the manuals for that one.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

A did a little research yesterday before committing to the purchase.

Probably the last update on "Big Bird" for awhile...

...I was hoping to get this Sherman-tank blowing by next weekend however the busted bolts that hold the tranny to the chassis will require me to pull & split the transmission in order to extract the broken bolts (red arrows):


I'm eager to see what horrors lie in the carb bowl however the emulsion-tube isn't going anywhere anytime soon...and on these updraft carbs, you can't split the carb until the tube is unscrewed from the carb body.

^^^ ok...I lied

screw extractors have been as useless to me as teats on a bull...until now! I worked the emulsion tube out until the last stretch when it bound-up.

^^^ there's a new tube & jets in the rebuild kit already on order.

...and the contents of the float bowl didn't disappoint!

Great deal CC. Here is a link to the engine service manual for that engine. Good luck with the restoration.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008 (Gone)
Toro 721-QZR (38741) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
