13. Final vote results will be posted to Poll topic at the time the Poll topic is closed. These posted results are the official, and FINAL[/u] results that will determine the winner each month regardless of any further votes cast After the polls have been closed. This is stated because while replies cannot be made after a poll topic is closed, apparently votes can continue to be cast. Its a technical issue that we have to work around at the present time.

14. In the event of a tie, the following procedure will be in effect. The tied winners will share having their pictures posted on the Club home page, each having an equal amount of the months time in the spotlight. There will only be one hat awarded though, and so there will be a run-off vote between the tied members for the hat. This vote will last 2 weeks. The winner of this second run-off vote will receive the winners hat.

If a tied winner has already won a contest and a hat, the hat for the tied contest will automatically be given to other tied winner who has not won one yet.

For this months TOM, I will be entering my 1989 Simplicity 7117H and my 1968 Simplicity 717. The 7117 I just recently purchased from a kid at my school. They said it didn't run but I got it running 5 minutes after it got to my house. The only problem was (which I think is why it wouldn't start for them) the ammeter terminal and the wire getting bad contact. Other than that it has ran fine. The 717... Well, it was forsale beside the road and thought that it was an nice, small tractor. (this was the second Simplicity I got). It went really slow and after a bit, I found that my Large Frames were so much better. Its in a non-permanent retirement right now because I don't use it all that much. My dad really likes it and so, I let him use it. He uses it most of the time. So, heres what you've been waiting for...THE PICTURES!!

My dad sanded the hood and is waiting for me to repaint it. I think it needs a bit more sanding;)

For the November TOM I will submit my smallest and largest tractors. The B206 is I believe from the early 70's. It is complete but I have not run it yet even though I have had it for several years. The CA is a 1953 and was given to me by my daughter and son in law when they moved into town from their farm. Free is always good!! Pics are as follows.

Ok having some fun with this one. The Broadmoor I bought 30 years ago and mowed an acre of grass for many years. Gave it to sister in law who used it for 5 or so years and then we got it back. That is just a little sweetheart of a tractor. Have been cutting grass now with the 4041 for the past 8 years but just can't part with the Broadmoor again.....

Here is my entry into the mix.I have had these two since 2001-2002.The CA is a 1952 with a Woods 72 inch deck. I Bought it from an estate and it was due for a clutch. Once I got into it the story is like so many others,one more thing and so on. Next thing is, might as well give it a squirt of paint as well. I use this to mow driveway ditches and trails.It is great when we get behind in yard mowing too as it can get things back under control quick. The B207 was an intended resto with engine overhaul and complete teardown. It's pivot point was froze up and it sat on three wheels until disassembly. Nice straight tractor but had set outside a long time.Its primary use is the fall fertilizer tractor as well as Grandsons favorite ride.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
