Honey, I parted out the new tractor

Recommended Posts

Well, you know you are getting old when the wife would rather work in the garden and you would rather work on the tractor than go to a picnic. Going over the 7013 I found the dog leg bracket on the starter/gen had broken and it has this electrical system issue caused by the repair shop that installed a new starter/gen just before I got the tractor. They hacked into the harness plug that plugs into the the ignition switch, plus other cheap hacks (wires just twisted together). Their company tag is on the starter/gen and I am tempted to call and tell them what I think of their work. Also the steering wheel and the base plate and bushing is not ideal (me partially rolling it didn't help). Well, I have this non-running 7016 I just got for $227 that looks like it may have been sitting for quite a few years but is a gold mine of parts, soooooo!


I think I am going to take the front PTO with the side lever and the power lift next.


The harvested electrical harness and some switches made all the difference. I can now shut it off without pulling the spark plug wire and the headlights work.


Much improved!

"Well, you know you are getting old when the wife would rather work in the garden and you would rather work on the tractor than go to a picnic." Now this is a scary statement today, I too skipped the local 4th of july picnic and stayed home and did yard work. Tractors all worked good so didn't have to work on them.^

I guess I'll join the getting old club too:D Spent yesterday moving the Johnny Bucket from the Hydro lift Big Ten, to the 917 with a hydro lift. Mounted a rear grader blade I bought from Dutch on the Big Ten. Mounted the center grader blade on the B-10 with the low speed pulley. Why? [img]/club2/attach/GregB/pile1.jpg[/img]

I moved 15 Cu Yards of fill ( The junk that comes off the screen when they screen top soil around here.) Having 10 Yards of topsoil dumped tomorrow to spread, grade, and seed before I go back to work on Monday.

Tomorrow the thunder storms are clearing out and it looks like an ideal day of tending the veggies and tractor time. A blast of wind tore through here today, knocked down several trees, none valuable except my 7 year old nectarine that had finally put on heavy. I pulled it back up and staked it out. Hope it has enough roots left.


The 7016H I just got for short money has probably sat for ten years, probably outside. But it is loaded. When you decide it's the best thing to part it out it's like inheriting a Simplicity parts store with all the goodies you have been wanting.

      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 
      Paul
