I don't have pic yet so I'll just tell. I have been remodeling a lady's kitchen and I noticed a Crapsman Rider setting in some bushes at her neighbors house It looked like it had been there awhile I seen a girl out raking so I asked if it ran she said no do you want it,not being one to turn down a freebie I hauled it home. It's a twin cyl 16hp I hooked up the charger shot a little gas in the carb and it fired right off. It wouldn't stay running,when I get time I'll check the filter Etc. The deck is froze up but thats a little thing. I took a little time to look at the crapsman, I put a new ignition sw. in it,drained the tank what I got out of the tank sure didn't smell like gas. I put in fresh gas and she purrs like a kitten, (well maybe a Tom cat) It has a few other issues I need to check out. I don't have time now to dig into it,a good winter project.

Jim, It never ceases to amaze me how some people would just "dump" a working machine because of something small wrong with it. It's sad to imagine how many tractors are "junked" because of something simple. Well, sad for them, good for us. :D

Just goes to show you that you dont know til you ask. I got a CC 107 with a newer engine and electric lift that way last winter. It was running but quit moving when they parked it. One pin in the drive shaft was all it needed:D. All they can do is say NO. And when your married you hear that word alot anyway;). Greg

      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
