This tractor cleaned out nice .

Deck solid with no rotten , just surface rust .

I took engine out , stripped  ,degreased it to a spotless , carb gum up and mice nesting  tells me it is been out of order for at least 6 years .

It seem it had a leak at some point from oil pan gasket ,for that u see all that oil and dirt buildup.

The bad news engine was seized ,I was able to free it with mystery oil, unfortunately after I freed it up , it span like nothing .

Broken rod .

The good news after I stripped it out , no damage from rod  to engine , on the way out rod hit piston ,took a small piece out .

Crank mint , no play ,within spec

Bore mint , not out of round , with in specs .

I was lucky  on EBay I found the original parts cheaper than dirt ,

I bought the OEM piston kit ,including  rings ($32 to my door )

I bought the OEM rod as well ( $22 to my door )

I have a complete OEM gasket kit .

I got every thing ready today including lapping valves , honing bore , cleaning inspecting head and  carb rebuilt , once parts gets here , it is a matter of putting it together,

This engine will fire nice after the overhaul .

I think the engine threw that rod due to leak , or the owner might had a steep lawn , as it  has the wheel weights on it .( just guessing)

This engine one of the cleanest engines  I rebuilt , usually piston is scored toward exhaust , this  piston in perfect condition , no scoring no play , unfortunately got chipped from rod.

This tractor unbelievable heavy due to back tires filled and cast weights .

      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
