(Ralph) made some noise today!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Those of you who have followed my post know that (Ralph) is a one owner bumble bee B10 I got last year at estate sale:)

Thats what it looked like the day of the saleB) I know it's rough but all there right down to the paper work:D

;) Well today I installed a good used Ebay bought tank. Along with new fuel line,clamps,and an original style petcock shutoff also a in line filter. Earlier I had installed a transistorised deal to replace the points:) A family member said something has gone wrong with the points that even a shop back then couldn't get fixed. So the tractor was sidelined very early in it's life:( Still had original battery in the tray although frozen and broken. Well today the the old boy tried to run8D Useing a jump box hooked to the wires put some gas in and hit the button:p POP POP BANG POP POP BANG BANG POP and so on^ Carb is pretty nasty so a fresh rebuild is in orderB) But money tight have not got unemployment check yet8 Running out of time before scrap show thurs-mon;) So he will get pushed around for another show but I think it won't be long before he is running for the first time in over 30 some years^

JJ the brackets are for a aftermarket push blade/plow

The other tractor was a diesel ranch king sold for $50 1/2 what (Ralph) cost. And took longer to sell:I The tractor got it's name after the original owner Ralph.

Ralph looks to be in good shape, the blade, I believe resembles on a Onan Sears 18/6? I've been working on. Sounds like you got a good deal! I've been looking into getting a bumble bee B-10 but Its in pieces and is painted green:(

      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
