B-1 Make Over

Recommended Posts

I finely started last winters project. that I put off till spring,and didn't get started until today:D I bought a B-1 last fall off e-bay he said it had good compression,and it probably did when it was new. The carb had a mouse nest or something in it,I had to junk it,the crank had groves worn in it,I don't think it will turn within limits. I have a 12 horse Kohler I can stick in it if I can't find a 19D.
Who ever painted it never heard of prepping,louse repaint.
The plastic covers were still on the grease cap on the front bearings,I thought this guy really took care of this unit I pulled them off and found the rustiest bearings I've ever seen. The things had never been greased, I had to heat them to get them off. Oh well it's 46 years old, with a lot of TLC and a lot of elbow grease she should stand proud again.

Well, at least it looks complete!:D A local auctioneer has a saying when he sells things like that,"it ran when it was new!". Looks like a very worthwhile project that will turn out nice!^

Well with all the rain it cooled off some and it's a good reason to work in the shop so I painted the B-1. I still need an engine,so I guess I'll overhaul my 12hp Kohler and stick that in it. I still need to clean and paint the wheels, and put the details on it I put new bushings in the steering,gears and spindles, new wheel bearings,and checked out the b/g box,it should be good for another 44 years. br][img]/club2/attach/Willy/Resized_DCP01061My pictures.jpg[/img]

      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
