System 7016 Reconditioning

Simplicity7013H

Hi All, I have gotten a 7016 from a Mr.Jerry McColley. According to Jerry, the machine used to be Brian Osenga's sons tractor so if anyone recognizes it please chime in. The hood was plastered with decals from various car customizing company's. They were the first to go. The hood is sanded, decals removed, and primed now ready for paint.

Sanded.... I don't have a picture of the primer stage but I'll be sure to get one.

That looks like great project. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress.

It's interesting to know a tractor's history. Given reasonable maintenance, these machines will outlast most owners. Truly "heirloom" quality.

The hood has been primed and painted. It's been a rough week so I haven't been in the shop much. I'm still needing a 16 HP motor which I might borrow from my 7016H just to test the tranny. I'm using paint restorer to bring back the orange paint. The rest is down hill from there. I've already installed my spare set of side pods 8)

The primer:

The Paint(rustoleum almond):

Hope to have it done by spring. I have a camo painted 7010 that needs a full on restoration or just parted out. That's next in line. I've got 3 projects I'm trying to juggle. Lol

I got a motor in a 7016 I would sell...

Well, now the manual labor...

I'm going to have to wax and buff the paint to get the nice luscious orange back to original. I'll take pictures of the products I use and some before and after pictures. Also, what size of tubes would I need for the back tires?

Thanks,

Elliott

I've been out working on the 7016 and I've cleaned up the paint to the best of my ability and think its a pretty big difference. Thanks to Zippo, I'll be getting the engine off of him come spring. This is it... This is as far as I can go until I get the engine. The clutch needs adjustment but other than that she is mechanically sound. The Products that I used:

This is all for now! Once I get the motor I'll revive the topicdOd

Get yourself (or have your dad buy) a rotary buffer/sander from Harbor Freight. They have a variable speed one for about 70 bucks, and it will accept 3m 7" pads. You'll not believe the difference...both in your results, and in your shoulders. I use mine every other year to do a three stage compound polish on my 21 foot boat. Takes the better part of a weekend, but my boat is a 97, and still looks as shiny as a new one.

Elliott I've used Dupont Color Back on things in past with very good results. Bought cheap buffer at Myers for $11 not as fancy as 2 or 3 speed but does the job

That's coming along nice Elliot. I know it'll clean up with some tlc.

Guys I'm still around just life happens and we all get busy/life events

But Elliot keep the pics posted and it's going to be another great tractor into your collection

Walmart has a cheap $20 air buffer. I think it's a Campbell Haussenfield or something like that. Will get some Meguiar's ColorX to make the overall color look better and more shiny. The fenders are from a late 7000 so they will have to either be replaced with a decent set from another appropriate machine or repainted. The seat is in decent shape and get a nice cover on it.

      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.
