Confused as always

Recommended Posts

Hi Tim, what you have is a tractor that was left over from 1966 and finish being built in 1967 as Simplicity does not go by calender years like people would like to think. This way they can sell anything left over from one year to the next as a new tractor and not a new model. Its called using last years inventory in the next year. In 1967 they just finish useing up the 1966 models that were left over and put a 1967 engine on yours. That would explain the 1967 engine on your tractor. They go by model runs and not yearly runs. My landlords engine date is 1963 and the tractor date on the transmission housing is 1964 so figure that one out. They must of on mine at least had a engine left over from 1963 and put it on my 1964 model and this is why getting parts for these old tractors can be so difficult unless the dealer knows what he is doing. So would mine be a 1963 or a 1964? I don't know as its either a 308 or a 314 or something in between...my tractor even was built with parts from a 725 like the steering gear box and front spindels. It can be a mess getting parts for it. I sure hope I did not pass my confusion your way. And I sure hope I made some sence. "Tim have a great week end" Jackl

      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
