Cleaned the Garage

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Tims (Broadmoormans) help, I was able to finally get my garage clean so tractor time was more enjoyable knowing that I can park them all in! Here is what it looks like now...

I finally have a place to work on engines, this used to be all I had for a work bench.

Here is all my parts (about 2 broadmoors worth and some 5116)

And the 6518 is finally able to get out from under the tarp and get some sleep before I finish the Tranny.

Once that White is gone, I could probably fit in 2-3 more Broadmoors. Not that I'm getting any ideas...;):p:D:Q And Tim, if you see this, could you post the Pics that you got?

First I've got to say that its good that you put the 6518 in the garage. When you all see the before pictures, you'll understand why its a big deal that Mark can finally put a tractor IN his garage.

Here is the before...

We had to take everything out....There was A LOT of stuff in there.

Here is the after... Now you just have to keep it clean Mark:D

First question--do you have a wife? Second, if so, how do you get away with this??? Last, the 4th pic down shows what running boards are really8D good for!

I would say at 15 years old your parents should be happy that this is your hobby compared to some of the other things you could be into. Even if it means losing the garage for a bit every summer. I would rather not remember some of my "hobbys" at that age, none of them had anything to do with tractors. Tell them you are a small engine mechanic in training and you will have a trade by the end of high school. Keep up the fun work. Greg

      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
