If that was a little closer, I was going to bid. What did that go for, wasn't it about $400? If I recall, I thought you got a good buy, and a very neat tractor/attachment outfit. I really like those old Simplicities. Good luck with your new tractor. Did you buy it to fix-up and use, or what? We expect better pics when you get it home ;). Tacey

Take a 5 foot length of electric wire with you and an air source, wrap the wire down the center of the tire and twist it tight with a screwdriver then try to fill with air. Once those narrow tires sit for a while they pull free from the bead and you need to reseat them before you can fill them with air. I had the same problem with the last tractor I picked up. oh yeah you have to have the tractor jacked up to do this so bring a jack too, it's a lot easier to load without a flat tire and you might not have to remove the attachments.

Thanks I'll try that. I'm planning to fix it up and use it. There just not fun if you don't work it. I got it for $360.01.

Nice ride! I was watching that too. A little too far away for me. Glad you got it. As for the tire, bring an extra set of front tires with you. Even is it's not the right size, it's easier than pushing a flat tire.

I'm working all weekend so I ask the guy next door to me if he was busy. He's going to go up Saturday and pick it up for me. Some of you guys know him,he was a member for awhile, Conrad Powell. He's the one that told me I needed to get an old Simplicity or Allis when I bought this place.

Got it home Saturday. Today is the frist day off I've had since Conrad got it. I had it running,but have carb issues. Needs a right side cover,rust hole in mine. So,if anyone has one let me know. But all in all I'm pretty happy with it. I my use it some this winter and start the work of repainting and all that come spring.

      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
