6-speeds

In case anyone has a 6-speed tractor, I offer the following. When I bought my 912, the high speed was very grabby. The belt was an ordinary hardware brand so I decided to try a new belt from Simplicity. Amazing. New tractor! You who have been following this site for some time remember the discussion some time ago about belts. Well, in my opinion the brand does make a difference when it comes to belts.

Jack, Just for you. When I bought my B12 it had a hardware store belt on it for the drive belt. When I started to use it I was burning up a belt every week. That made me decide to drive the 90 miles to the nearest AC dealer and get the correct belt. I have the receipt for that belt dated 1973 and the belt is still on my B12 that I use to mow, snowblow, doze, till, plow, etc. Still runs fine without slipping. Proud holder of the oldest living drive belt award. Bestowed on me by someone in this club, but I'd have to look back though the old Yahoo messages to see who. Maybe you remember who it was Jack. Well that's it. Tim

      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
