Simplicity 871

Recommended Posts

Someone just gave me a Simplicity 871 - no rear wheels, rusted out deck, no seat. Is it woth restoring? What's with all the hydraulics in the rear? Compared to my cub cadets, the rear on this thing looks like a lunar module!

That would be a 1973 3416H. The trans is a Vickers with its a remote cooler and canister filter. It was a good tractor in its day but the trans input shaft seal area would wear and leak fluid - it is not easy to repair. If the engine is in running order check the trans for leaks before going further. Being the engines are NLA it may be the most valuable piece on the tractor because it is easily swapped into many other newer models.

What's the chance of someone sweapping a K-301 kohler for it? What size engine is that Briggs? It looks awfully big, maybe bigger than my K-301.

      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
