i never posted pics on this one when i got it last year 08. picked this up last year for $0 from a fellow member here at the club. the tractor was allready stripped down and the body panels primed. it was in pretty good shape before i started on it. also got a mowerdeck with it in good shape. i pulled it out of the shed last week and started putting it back together. here is some pics of it allmost done. still have to put the crome wonder boy emblems on, finish and clean the seat, and button up the engine controls. anybody have a good way of cleaning old seat ?.

Perry, I would get a rattlecan of the spray vinyl dye and re-dye it to a clean white color. I have used red and black dyes and they worked pretty well.

Now that looks nice Perry. Question that choke lever on a 700, thought they didn't come into being til the 725. Have you tried Simple Green and a brush on the seat to clean it, then a vinyl softener.

im starting to wonder about the wonderboy now ?. the choke cable and shifter might link this to a 725 . ill have to dig into this further. i have the crome emblems that say wonderboy 700 on them ?. ill post pics of the emblems, model tag, and engine #'s in a bit.

Where did you get the tires? my 63 Gmark had similar tires, but I could only get snow treads in that size. jh

they are original tires. i used dupli-color truck & van wimbledon white T205 paint for the rims and all the other white on the tractor. it was a nice close match to the original white plus meijers had a 50% off sale on all their auto paint last weekend. i just grabbed some on the fly and got lucky on the color match.

Perry, can you post another pic of the PTO lever? It might have been a modification. Both my 700's had a lever with a round knob just like the rest of the B-series.

Perry, According to my records your Model 19 Briggs was built in Jan. or Feb. 1960. Maybe they started to introduce some 725 parts toward the end of 700 production. Anything seems to be possible with these old tractors, its always fun to try to unravel the mystery. My 725's engine was built in Feb. of 1961 and has all the features shown in the catalogs for that year.

I use scrubbing Bubbles on my seats.Works well and does not harm the seat. My wonerboy 700 has a straight shifter on it. How bad were the front axel shafts? Looking nice.

Wow looks great, I think the rattle can vinyl paint is a good idea to save the seat. Dupli color makes some good stuff Kragen sells it. I sure hope my 4041 comes out that good. Tim
