Recommended Posts

Well thanks to a nice gentleman named Reed, I got back to the 3012 hydro conversion. I picked up the trans from Reed last weekend, and started putting things back together. I still have some things to figure out, but hopefully it will be running and driving in a few weeks. Here is were I'm at right now.

Yes I will elaborate about the two levers.:D This is going to be a dedicated "Elon" bucket tractor. The lower lever is for the lift, and the top is going to be the dump.

In the first picture, on the left, do you see the two milk crates stacked up? Well inside the top of is my Mr Heater on a propane tank. Thought is really doesn't work that well in this cold. Normally after a half hour, I can take my jacket off.:D

I thought about that, but I want the rear for counter weight.

Lookin good Elon. But, wouldn't a double spool valve with the levers beside each other work smoother? Progress looks real good though. Looks like we all have a project going on right now.lol:D

Yeah it probably would, but then I would have had these two valves sitting here doing nothing.:D

Well, Elon that didn't take long. I finished my vickers transplant enough to know that it works other than (surprise) a small leak. I might just have to use the other sundstrand but I think I'll wait for it to warm up before I do much more work out in the (cold) garage.:D:O

Well by all accounts, it is going to work just fine. After a few leaks, and getting blasted with the acorns getting blown out from under the sheet metal, I got the engine running, and tried the lift and dump. It works well sitting there, I didn't get to try to move and use the lift, but I hope to soon. I still have to take care of some rubbing issues. I know some of you are going to ask why I ran the two main lines on the side of the frame, and the answer is, every were I tried to run the lines, they were tight against a part of the frame, or not enough room. It's not what I had in mined, but oh well, nothing ever is, right???:D

Well, bad news tonight. I thought I was going to the next step, but wile trying to install the tower, I noticed that it hits the fitting on the cylinder. I can't turn the cylinder around, as the fitting would hit the drive shaft coupler. I guess I'll have to take the lift out of Ugly Betty and use the cylinder and mount of of that. Oh well, it will have to wait till the weekend.

      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
