Some Week - Part 3

Recommended Posts

The third of "three" was on eBay, about 10 miles away; saw it late Friday night and almost used "buy it now" immediately - but what do I need another tractor and some attachments for? I checked it's availability Saturday morning, and no one had snagged it yet. I could no longer resist and it's now mine. As expected, the tractor has an electric lift (and it works fine):

In the eBay pics, I noticed the handle for the front mechanical PTO. The tractor has a complete front PTO:

The 42" deck is decent, needs a baffle and a roller:

The tiller appears to be in good shape, but no idler or belt:

The rear mount blower rotates fine, but is missing the inlet piece; 42" deck boot is servicable:

And a repower bonus:

However the Briggs has been run for a while without the welch plug:

And another bonus is the almost new front tires that can be seen in the above pic. I think I got a great deal; now what to do with all of it?

Looks like youv'e had a real nice week making some sweet scores. Has the Briggs in this one also been run without the oilfiller cap as well as the welch plug? If that leaf blower needs to find a home maight haveta figure out how to get it on a northbound.^

Marty, Good eye with spotting the missing dipstick. I didn't see that when I picked up the tractor, and had some oil spillage bringing it home. So at least it wasn't run dry. Only time will tell the true shape of the engine.

      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
