This one is in fair condition, but the engine rattles like hell and smokes like it's on fire. I'll prob just pass it on to someone that likes green lol.

jd that's a nice looking Homelite in your avitar. What model is it? I have two T-16H, and an old Homelite walkbehind that is in storage. Just was curious.

Its a T16. Ole dog really does a nice job. Hope to do a restore on it someday. All it really needs is some paint.
Its one of my $50 finds. Gotta love that.

Is that a hydro or 4 speed? I have two T-16H built by Allis Chalmers. I will post pictures later today when my second one arrives on the truck today from PA. Ihave found a lot of information on these recently on the internet. Have you found much info.? If not I can give you a couple of web sites to go to. Thanks. As soon as I can figure out how to post pictures I will. I also want to put one in my avitar. Not sure how to do that yet.

Mine is a Simplicity hydro. Never have figured out what year it is, thinking it's around 1973. If you know anyplace I could find headlights for it that would be great.

That one looks better than my second one (the one that was just posted) It still is a good find and a great GT to restore. I was looking on CL and if I had about $10k I would start traveling the US and buying old Homelite tractors snow blowers and mowers. I've seen a lot of them listed this week. Most with decent prices. From a T-16H, T-10.T-8, T-7 and acouple of nice snow blowers a 8hp, a7hp and a older style self propeled walk behind. Even a 8hp tiller that looked in good shape. I probably could buy everthing for about $2k or less but I would need the rest for fuel. I told my wife thathis and she said "..and just where would you put these projects to do in relation to the 5 projects you already have to do?..." I guess I have to agree with her. But it would be nice to have almost all of the Homelite collection in your posession. Thanks for listening.
