Hood gasket

Has anyone ever replaced the rubber stripping on the hood where it meets the gas tank on a RBT tractor? It's missing on my 4040 and thought maybe Home Depot or somewhere might have something.

Rich, I know for sure Autozone has those rubber stripping, they use them on the edge of car doors as a bumper. It's not exactly the same texture or thickness as the original, but they look good and work good. I bought 8' (2x 4' strips) for $2.99 for my truck and they have stayed in place with no problems.

do you have an old torn tractor seat you may be able to use the plastic nylon that holds the cover to the pan easy to size with a tin snips they hold paint and can be smashed some for a good close fit.

Are you talking about the rubber seal that goes under the hood to seal the top of the gas tank from the engine heat or the trim that goes around the outer edge of the hood? My power max has the remnants of a rubber gasket or seal under the hood to seal the top of the gas tank from the engine (probably to keep hot air from blowing back into the operators face). Try an automotive body shop supply house or an automotive paint store, either one should have what you need. Mike

      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
