Hello everyone, Just wanted to introduce myself and say that I am thankful that I found this club. My name is Jaden and I live in southeast Iowa. I have spent a good part of my life wrenching on muscle cars and race car, but have found a new hobby. Over the past few months a couple of my friends and I have accumulated some garden tractors. I currently have a B-207, B-12 and a Massey 12. They are sitting in a friends garage with about 12 green tractors and a Cub 70. I just picked up the B-12 this past weekend in SW Missouri and also spent a day scouring the area for other vintage tractors. I came across a few old AC's but nothing was for sale. I have been using this site for information for a few months now and tonight took the time to look at the entire site and found this message board. I look forward to learning more about these tractors and will most likely have a number of questions to ask. Jaden

Thanks to everyone for their warm welcomes. I must say this group is quite impressive based just on the few days I have been a member. I placed one classified add looking for parts and have 3 people looking to help me immediately. As for the pics, I'll get of mine and my friends other pics posted this weekend. For those of you asking about the Barracuda. It's a 67 Barracuda notchback with a 273. I got it about 10 years ago when I was 15 and drove it everyday in high school and delivered pizzas in it for quite a few years. The car was originally from Wisconsin which caused a little havoc on the unibody and ate away at the front frame. I recently bought a 75 Plymouth Scamp and I will be using it as a donor car for my Barracuda to get it back on the road. I'm in the process of (currently not working to much on it, spending more time with the garden tractors)stripping the Scamp and getting ready to remove the frame. In the past I've also owned a 66 Coronet Station Wagon with a 440. I grew up around muscle cars and they will always be a passion of mine. My step dad currently has a 69 SS396 Camaro and a 66 Coronet 2 door hardtop. My brother is currently re-restoring his first car, a 1970 Challenger RT/SE. So as you can see, wrenching is kind of a family thing, I love stuff with motors and garden tractors fit the mold pretty well. My other passion is dirt track racing. I've been helping my best friend with his open wheel modified since we were in high school and do websites for him and another friend. www.17racingteam.com www.banks22racing.com Sorry for the book, just thought I would give a little more background. Hopefully I can get some pictures up soon for all to see. jaden

      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
