Here's one that showed up at a local show last year. It was a '74 model T-10. I believe it had a Briggs.

Brought the Homelite home. Needs a lil love, but it'll make a cool tractor when it's done. Needs a starter/gen, the cluth for the deck is gone and I think it might have some rear end problems. I only gave $50 for it so what the heck. Worst comes to worst I'll put the 16 horse Kohler on the original. All the tins are straight and the deck is fair.











I luv the headlights.

Yeah nice looks better than the simplicity I think looks like the pto for the deck is there the clutch up front is for the blower the lever under your left knee is for the deck I believe!! Also it should be a Briggs

Nice find I would have bought for 50 would fit in nice with my simplicitys and AC
The front clutch is not there but on the BGB is there and the deck belt goes off that to run your deck .
and if you are having rear end trouble try draining the fluid put new filter on and it take 3 Quarts to refill it and once they get so low they dont run worth %$#^ . ALL i have is simplicity/AC
Need any other questions anwered email me @
simplicity_ac@yahoo.com

Thanks for heading me in the right direction on the clutch setup. I didnt have much time to look at it, I made sure the engine wasnt locked up, offered the kid $50 and ran. havent had time yet to look it over and see what engine it has. I was going off what he told me and he aint real smart. One thing you all can help me with is the right wheel hub and the lever on top of the hydro unit. The right wheel hub you can see in the pic and under the body on top of the rear end is a L shaped lever that pulls straight up. looks like it sets on top of a pair of valves.

I believe you need to clean those valve up a little and get them to move they are for free wheeling the tractor if you need to push it they release the hydro so it will roll

Have you worked on her yet?? I always wanted the homelite. We have a winch on the trailer makes it easy even by myself. All tractors are winched on weather they run or not.

Havent had time to touch it yet. I've been thinking about mounting a atv winch on the front of my trailer for a while now. After loading the homelite It's going to get mounted real quick.
I did go out and turn over the engine by hand and I think the compression is a little on the low side. I was told it ran, but smoked a lil. Hope it dont smoke as bad as a walk behind I've seen on here...lol

Concerning the ATV winch.

Make sure ya get a good one. Grandpa had HF one that he mounted to a trailer, and we used it to pull a small dozer, about 800 lbs, onto it. The winch was rated for 1200 IIRC, and would only pull the damn thing about 4 inches before it would kick out.
