I can't resist putting up the Simplicity that started it all for me here at the club. My 7010-3speed...which is now a 7010-6speed. Below is the link to my very 1st thread and another to the 6 speed conversion just for kicks... I found this tractor for sale on the side of the road for $300. I thought it was great till I found that it was well neglected for many yrs...I rebuilt the BGB, cone clutch, carb, S/G reprd and did a total clean/sand/repaint with all new decals...but still has the good old 10hp & is my most dependable tractor. I found attachments for it over a few year period before the resto so I re-did them all at the same time...Thanks sm01http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=117990&SearchTerms=7010http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=118574&SearchTerms=7010

I would like to nominate the 7016 I modified. This tractor was a freebie from member BrettW. It was missing the engine a in dire need for some TLC. So the saga of modifications began. In brief, the frame has been chopped and widened, stretched, and the trans has been relocated to a higher position in the frame to align the driveshaft with the Onan BF-MS twin 16 hp. I redid this as my 4-H project and it received a merit award and an invitation to next years State Fair to be placed in the expo center.

I would like to enter my simplicity 7016H from 1977. I bought this off the side of the road a little over a year ago and have fully restored it since then. Every nut and bolt was taken apart, except for the hydrostatic pump itself. Everything was sandblasted and painted, also all new decals. The gear box is rebuilt and tight and the transmission and differential have all new keys. The engine has been completely rebuilt and bored to .020 over and the crank machined too. Every seal and gasket on the tractor is new. It did not have a mower deck with it when I bought it so I found a 48 inch deck on a 7119 in the back of a local shop. It was really beat up and took a lot of welding to make it right again. After I was done welding it I had the shell powder coated and I put new bearings in all 3 arbors. It's very sturdy now and cuts great. I have basically made this tractor and deck as close to the way it was when it was new in 1977 as I could.

On white carpet, too. The fact that he got away with that without a paddling shows that he must have one truly supportive mother.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
