change of plans

Recommended Posts

finally got around to opening up my blown 243431, and was disheartend by the findings. the connecting rod was reduced to rubble. the crank jornal was destroyed, and the piston was mushroomed on the bottom, from being struck by the rod. also, where the cylinder extends below the block (about 1/4 inch) a piece was broken off. i'm told by a few techs. that this would not be an issue. while searching for a new crank, i came across a 25 Hp v-twin. and the "tim taylor" syndrome kicked in. "MORE POWER !!" My $25 B 210 is going to become a B 225 with with a front end loader. i already removed the old attachment lift assembly, and fabricated one that extends through both sides of the frame, and has ball joint ends. rather than using the standard chain for lifting the grader blade, i made bars from 3/4 " round stock, so the hydro lift system can apply down force to the blade. but chains can still be used to allow the mower deck to "float".

      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
