Welcome to the club. My B-1 is still in service. The
only thing it needs is more power.

Likewise, most folks think I'm nuts for keeping my old
B-1 but I like it.

Welcome aboard, I used to build street rods for a living, so when I took up restoring my old B-10 some of my friends said why. I'll tell you something, I'am having more fun rebuilding and finding parts than any old car I rebuilt. So #@%$& them we like it and understand what your going through. Have fun and enjoy the site, best group of people I've talk to on the computer. goodluck and again enjoy it. polo

Hello I would like to become a member of the sim/Ac Tractor club
My family and friens all think I'm Nuts for spending so much time working
on my tractor. It is a b-1 that I have used for quite a while. I decide that
this year it could use a little work to get into like new condition for another
38 years of service. I have already had the tractor repainted. And then I decided
to Rebuild the motor because it was starting to smoke a little too much
after tearing it down everything looks amazingly mint except for the valves. I found
your club after looking for 19D engine parts on the web. I managed to get valves and
a gasket kit. and hope to put it all back together soon. All the local tractor
stores think I'm nuts but hey somebody show me a 30 year old MTD that runs (hah hah)
I would love to send some pictures off this project if someone can tell me where
to email them to. I also have 42' mover, tiller, snow blade, generator. which I plan to
refurbish. Any hints anyone has will be helpfull.

Welcome! Believe me -- you'll be understood here. Probably most of us have experienced the same lack of understanding from spouses, friends, dealers, etc.

E-mail me pictures and the story you want to tell to the address above, and I'll post them to the Gallery. We'd certainly like to see some pictures of the generator (a rare old bird).

Again, welcome.

      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
