Paint on chrome parts

Recommended Posts

Well, I stripped the air cleaner cover using fine 00 steel wool and paint stripper. I rubbed the paint off and the only rust I see is in the area where the wing nut goes. Otherwise it's in very good condition for being 39 years old. Next I'm onto the panels that are on the grill support.

Another thing you might try, I use this for everything, is laquer thinner. Pick up a storage tote from your local department store for $5.00 or so and a 5 gallon bucket of thinner for $20.00 at your local auto parts store. Let'em soak for a day. The only effort you should have to put into them will be to pick them up. I also use the same thinner and tote to degrease parts. Works excellant! NO SMOKING THOUGH! Rob

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
