Big Ten Wrenching ( Before The Restoration )

Recommended Posts

Hey Guy's I had a great day of wrenching on the Big ten !! I'm going to restore this machine to better than new !My plans were today to install the Hydro-lift and fix the sloppy steering ,the original front end was so worn out I decided to use the front end out of a 3410 that I had for parts. After getting into it I found that this tractor already had a Hydro-Lift on it at one time, You'll see in the pics. The marks in the paint where the nuts were tightened to hold the pump on. The PTO bracket appears to be correct too. I also found marks in the paint that appeared to be from a HI - Low pulley,Can It be Told by the serial # 039311 what this tractor was originaly set up with ?? The hydro lift dose have a leaky front seal but works strong and holds good in both up & down mode's The steering is like new . Stay tuned I'm going to start restoring her soon :D This is not going to be my typical FastPaul Job, This ones going to be perfect I really like this tractor and I'm going to make her brand new again !!!!!!!!

These old B's are great you can wear then down but you can't wear them out. All they ask of you is gas, oil and paint every 10 year or so. I've had my first B-10 for 34 years ,I repowed it three times a 10,12,14 hp eng and now I have a 16 hp twin I'll be putting in it when I get some time. Hard to beat the Foot Draggers.:D

Looking forward to seeing your work. I am guessing MediumPaul is still quite impressive. I put a lot of hours on my Big Ten, until it went into semi-retirement. Now it pretty much just goes to shows.

Paul...Looks like an excellent candidate for a full on restoration. Just wish my Sovereign was in as good a shape when I started.. Welds here and there, sheet metal all boogered up, grill smashed....(those 725 holes in that grill bout made me give up...lol.), incorrect S/G bracket, numerous incorrect bolts (Thank goodness for the 2110 donor parts), and it still needs the belt guard on the mid PTO ,the correct hood bolts and a decent seat pan. I did put the Sovereign back in service and it got it's first battle wound last weekend while I was mounding up the leaves to burn. Looking good, and looking forward to seeing the restoration process.

      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
