Jeff Nemes and others have been most helpful on tips about our tractors and I know this might of been mentioned before "but" let's have a instant replay just incase ok. I was cleaning off my tractor with an air hose like always after useing it. You know blowing all the good ole dried grass and dust off the engine and infact the whole tractor. Well when I was useing it to mow I noticed the engine was a little sluggish and it seems hotter then normal. There had not been the air movement around the engine area while it was running like there should of been. So I did some checking and found the fins on the flywheel to be partly spugged with grass. So I tried my air hose and it was packed so tight the air pressure wouldn't even clear it. So after pulling the drive shaft and the flywheel screen I was able to clear the fins so they could do there job of cooling. Now I had checked this last fall and totally missed it. And it was not from mice either like some might think. Check it out-Thanks jackl

Very well written my friend Jack,It is most important upon starting up trac. for the first time in this new mowing season to check the air flow over the head. If it's plugged it HAS TO BE CLEANED OUT!! no easy chore as Jack so eloquently stated.I found out that a shop vac[strong one ]works very well to clean out debris dlc ps Jack we're gonna have to get you a publisher!!

Check often!! This time of the year the cottonwood, poplar, and dandlion fuzz will plug that screen in minutes.

A couple of weeks ago ,I gave my 1964 landlord a quickie make over,(second one in two years).I took the motor out to paint it and the rest of the tractor.
I rebuilt the motor one year ago so I figured it would'nt be too packed,wrong!. When I took the cover off, A whole load of nest came pouring out(I think it was a mouse nest). I'm glad I decided to do this as I'm sure I would have fried the engine in no time.

      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
