57 Wonderboy update

Recommended Posts

So the lack of compression took all of 5 seconds to diagnose. Looks like the old Clinton Manufacturing 3.6 has seen better days. So I dug out a an old Briggs I had from a SnowBird snow blower. I just wanted to make sure everything worked before total disassembly. So, I bolted it on, quickly rebuilt the carb, and off I went! My wife thinks I'm a dork but I don't care! I keep telling her to just wait til it's all restored! sm06

Yes I did. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. The week was crazy. I might be interested in just the dealer brochure. Let me know what you'd want for just that alone.

Nice Job! I have wanted to pick up a wobblestick Wonderboy for years, but none ever seem to cross my path. Some day.... I see you are a Buick man also. One of the local shop owners in my area just picked up a real neat barn find- a 1949 Buick stock car with all the original lettering, interior modifications, etc. I'll try to get some pic's if you are interested.

That would be fantastic Tom! I'd love to see it!

Had my chance last year at the portland show to get a 57 wonderboy rolling stock for 65 bucks and when I went back the next morning, the guy had jumped ship and I missed out. So I brought home 3 5S briggs instead...lol. Nice looking machine!!

      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
