Yes I think instead of driving over these decks it would even be quicker if we just pulled a "WHEELIE" and jumped over the darn deck. just me happy-jack

Spring is here. Time to mow.
1. Oil and free up all the rollers
(incl the 2 anti-scalpers way under) CHECK.
2. Oil the idler pulley (under the tin cover) CHECK.
3. Sharpen the blades CHECK.
4. Install mower under trac CHECK.
Test ????
WAIT. Something is wrong !
Blades were reinstalled upside down !!!
Undo step 4. Turn blades over.
Redo step 4.
At least with the Simplicity 3 pins attachment,
the above only took 10-15 minutes.

PLEASE keep this between us, and don't let it get around.
The guys at Simple Tractors will laugh at me.

Also don't forget to retension the spring on the deck belt! Oh! you didn't unhook the spring on the deck belt. If that belt is only a few years old it may make it through a mowing or two. Well we'll just drop that deck again when that belt fails.... Good thing these decks are easy to get on and off

Reminds me of long ago BG (before Gunk) I was cleaning the
crud off a '48 Chev pickumup motor with gas, paint brush, and
putty knife. (without disconnecting the battery of course)(too rushed).
The 1 minute run to the barn and return with the fire extingusher is
still a 100 yd record. My truck sported all brand new wiring after that, though.

      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
