Mark, For the steering wheel, maybe you can use a Rust/Calcium/Lime remover to make it look like new? You can find these in auto stores, or in home depot/home depot style stores. I'm surprised you're not touching up the transmission, since you've gone all the trouble to make the front end beautiful. Wow, man, you did really great. Looks sharp. :)

A rinsing of WD40? What does that do? What kind of chrome polish? What was the number on the steel wool? Sorry for all the questions, I'm getting ready to do my chrome and I'm still learning.

I started to take apart the engine for the 707. Its the 8hp from the parts 738 I have. Seems ok from the outside. A little dirty but overall its good.


Parts engine that came with the 707


Carb is "ok", a little dirt


Needles good, no pitting or scratches. Still has a nice point to it.


Carb Bowl is Dirty!


Painting the the engine tins for a nice clean look.

Looks nice! I have a question - do you know for sure if the steering wheel is original to that tractor? What is the serial number? Do you have the original engine numbers yet - specifically the date code? All of my 707's and all of the others I have seen had black steering wheels. The older 6hp Broadmoors with the black dash are the ones I have seen the white steering wheel on. Maybe another Simplicity mystery here with model year transitions. Thanks, Tim

I need to ask a quick question.... Is the paint on a tractor supossed to shine? Because I want to add clear coat on the hood and seat pan do make it a bit more durable and give it a nice shine. Anyhow.... Hood looks good, engine is almost ready to test fire (Pull start) and the tractor over all is looking great! Engine look 100x better with the painted parts


The carb is all clean, new gaskets too.


Hood turned out great!

Hey Mark, Been paying special attention to your restoration since my 700 is up next. Thanks for the pics of your progress. Are you just taping off your B&S Emblems or are you getting new ones? I am only applying the clear coat on my B-112 because that is what we do on our trucks and equipment. Would love to hear what others think.

All I can say is unbeleivable! That really looks great! I hope mine turns out 1/2 that good. The pic didn't show the clear coat real well. How did you like it? Was it worth the time and money?

      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
