I finally got around to power washing a 717 I got for free off Craigslist. The PO got it with the house he bought. He had it running last year but he couldn't get it running this year. He took the carb and breather off. I got those in a baggie. It had a newer battery in it. I cleaned up the carb and reassembled it and it runs and drives very nice. The mower deck works well also.

I also took the pressure washer to my Homelite T-10 that I just got running and driving.

I have plans to restore the Homelite. The 717 will go down the road to help feed my tractor addiction and buy more parts and attachments for my fleet. Tom

      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
