Just bought an Allis Chalmers 712 hydro yesterday. $300 runs great new battery tire chains and a plow. Any problems I should be aware of anything to watch for? Also I want a deck for it, will any simplicity deck from that era fit cuz I see a complete deck (42") for sale for $100. Will any 700 ac/7000 simplicity series deck work on my machine? I will post some pics when I get the chance. These old garden tractors are awesome!

Congrats! I would change all the fluids and grease the zerk fittings. Also, wipe down the axle tube on the right side and inspect closely for any cracks.

I want to say yes any deck that will fit a 700 Allis or 7000 Simp will work, but I could be wrong.

She runs great, now I just have to find attachments and start to clean her up...going to get that deck hopefully tomorrow it is off a 710 so it should fit. Any good places to buy paint for these?

FYI I am having trouble posting pics but Ill keep trying lol
