Spring "fieldwork"

Recommended Posts

I got the engine in the B-12 just in time to do a little disking on Tuesday. The garden at home was getting a little weedy.

I went next door to look at my other garden for the first time this spring,and it was so weedy I thought I'd have to use the tiller.

I tried the disk anyway, here is the first pass.

I kept going and it began to work it up pretty good.

I was impressed at how well it did. The "new" engine runs good with no smoke or knocks and plenty of power, best $50 bucks I've ever spent.

Thanks guys. David, the engine came from my parts tractor from this post: http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=80420 Marty, I have tried several combinations of disks and weights over the years, I used to have a brinly tandem with 12" blades, it was made for a cat-0 three point but someone put a tow hitch on it, when I used it I had 3 cement blocks on it and it didn't do much. My current set up is a Simplicity 8-12 disc on the rear and a brinly with 11 inch blades on the front, I found it works better without weights, I don't have any idea why, maybe its more free to vibrate side to side and loosen things up. I think the main thing for performance is to hit the dirt when conditions are right and the ground isn't too dry.

      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
