This can't be good

Recommended Posts


So I have gotten the tractor running well, muffler all patched up, and adjusted the transmission properly, as it was obvious someone was screwin' around with the adjustments and didn't know what they were doing.    Well, even after adjustment, it pulls strong and fast in reverse, but sluggish and slow in forward.  Anyway, I wanted to change the fluid but had a full drain oil container so it had to wait, and I wanted to drain it when warm.  Upon removing the filter, this is what I have found in the orafice into the filter from the pump.  Now, I've never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the drawer, but I'm pretty sure this can't be good.  This will be the first Sundstrand pump I have ever had go kaput.  And I am almost certtain it was towed.  The whole tractor seems to have low hours, but was not garage kept and I think it was just never properly cared for.  So now I have to go a lookin' for a pump.  I had a few, but ended up getting rid of them, eventually.  There isn't much demand.  The fact that I can still cut grass and it keeps on truckin' although poorly, is a real testament to these, considering that kind of metal in the fluid.

      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
