42" Snow Blower rebuild - coming together!

Recommended Posts

I started this project in mid August. I don't think anyone here will confuse me with Fast Paul. I'm definitely not fast! It's still not finished...but it's getting close. If anyone out there has the factory electric spout rotator kit, would you post the motor mount specs for me? The height to the center of the hole that the motor shaft goes through, would be great! A bracket was available on e-bay, about a week ago. It went for $87.00. Somebody wanted it pretty bad! Any help with finishing up this project will be greatly appreciated!! Here's a few pics, in case you're interested.
A new scraper bar has been installed.



New bearings were installed for the auger.
A 5" pulley from an old 36" blower should make the snow fly.;)
This is the blower before the restoration.

By the way Gary, it was I who bought that spout kit. Sorry if you were the one I sniped it from. This one was just a few miles from my house and it is only the second kit I have seen. I bid on the first one last year and got outbid. Then, another member promised to build me one as part of a trade for a couple of 16 horse Briggs engines. He took the engines, but welched on the electric spout rotator. So yeah, I wanted it real bad....but I will do what I can to send pictures of what came with the kit. When looking at these pictures, please notice that all the squares are in inches....but the top (horizontal) and side (vertical)axis ' do not start at "zero". Also note that the bracket is not a perfect right angle. It is a few degrees off. I can send these via e-mail in high resolution if anyone need them that way. I can take additional pictures on request as well.

Thanks for the pics, Eric! And thanks for taking the time to do the setups on the grid. It should make the fabrication much easier.:D I had bid only $50.00 for the kit. Someone else was bidding on it with you, after that. Thanks again!!:D:D

      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
