Quickie restoration

Recommended Posts

Figured I would do a quick paint job on the 3112V before I put the winter cab and snow blower on it for the winter. It's just a rattle can paint job but it will do for now, still have to do the wheels and some other pieces. I plan on doing a more thorough restoration on my 3112H over the winter.

Zip, this was a 3112V, he's going to redo his "H" during the winter

This weekend I painted the wheels and few other pieces,installed the wheel weights,new exhaust,seat cover and a mega-fire points eliminator(Big difference in how it runs now).


Next weekend I will try to put the winter cab on,it's off an ariens so I'm sure it will need some modifyingsm00.Thanks for all the possitive feedback it's much appreciated.Hopefully when I do the 3112H over the winter it will come out somewhere as nice as ZippoVarga's,that is one sweet looking tractor.

Harleyman, Looks like a very decent job for a rattle can job. I love those mega-fire ignition modules. They work great for me. Some guys here seem to have trouble with working with them. Just be sure that the megafire is not enclosed inside the points box. That'll damage it in the long run and cause your tractor to act as if it is soft-seizing after running for a long time in the heat. Some people put them in the blower housing. That is a clever solution.

The green one isn't mine it'r the father-in-laws I'm just storing it for him. I mounted my mega-fire on the battery/gas tank bracket under the hood seems to work fine there.Now all I need is some new decals and I'll be ready,any ideas where I can get some 3112V ones,I've found the white simplicity hood decals but none with the black model numbers.

It's getting there,I mounted the blower to make sure everything worked ok,just need to paint it,put the chains on and wait for snow. Don't pay any attention to the name on the door the top was cheap and close so I grabbed it.

      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
