How About This for a Powermax Re-power?

Recommended Posts

I would think that no conversion would be necessary for bio diesel. In my opinion do not run any animal fat bio. Use a vegetable oil like soy. Do not use used fryer oil and try to refine it into something. We have had good luck with anything from 2% to 20% soy/diesel mix. It seems that most of the manufactures do not recommend anything over a 20% blend of soy and I may be mistaken, but I think that John Deere recommends nothing over 10%. On of our guys ran 100% soy for about two weeks in his 95 Freightliner with a Cummins. He said it ran great but I was concerned that the soy would damage some of the O-rings in the fuel system.

Thats true no particular conversion is needed for mechanical injection motors.On some computer injected motors it is not recommended. however the veg oil,[I'm not sure of animal oils] are corrosive to some rubber and even plastics.With that eng. and the addit. of power steering and you got a beautiful/brute there!

      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
