It's Alive!

Well I finally got the 16hp Vangaurd in my D-A 1616 running. I picked this thing up non-running and boy did it have it problems. Busted rocker arm, blown head gasket, bad fuel shut off solenoid, etc. It was late last night when I revived her and she needs a little adjusting yet. Poor thing was rode hard and put up wet. Hate people who can't (will not) take care of things. A little TLC would have gone a long way. So much for preaching. Need to adjust the governor and readjust the valves (think I got them a little tight). It has a little dead spot at about 3/4 throttle. Hope to be mowing with it soon.

      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
