New Rider 717

Recommended Posts

I got a great deal on a almost all original 717. Only $50! It is missing the starter and air lilter, and the throttle and a few small things too. But there are alot of harder to find orirignal parts that are in Great Shape! It has a 36" mower deck too, Good bearings but has a few patches.

A near perfect Bumper

Non-rusted hood bolts

Ya, once I figure out how to get the key out, I will take the keychain off. I don't know if I should part this one out, or use parts from the 707 that is currently apart and make this one useable.pi8O)

Mark, You can use PB blaster in the keyhole and use visegrip pilers to nudge it sideways then up and down. Should come out eventually. Worst thing that can happen is, you'd have to take the whole ignition switch out with the key and junk it and replace it.

      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
