Thanks, Guys.  Yep, that little B-207 started it all!  One family had it since brand new.  Uncle sold Pontiac cars and AC lawn and garden. His  dealer sticker still on the side of the hood.  Uncle sold new tractor to his brother, then when brother was quite a bit older, gave it to his son -who I bought it from.  Son is probably 40 or so years old, and has younger kids, and didn't want them using something that wasn't "safe", and would stop when it got hot.  (needed coil replaced)

It is all original.  Son said he wished he wouldn't have used the hood as a workbench when he was a kid.  Hood has lots of the paint scraped off, and outline of a quart paint can, or something of that size on it.  Came with the dealer brochure, original owners manual, and plastic bag that probably was tied to the steering wheel.  Had always been garaged.

Will not be restored.  Uses some oil, carb isn't perfect, but cuts grass well.  I only use it once or twice a season, and just wash and put a coat of wax on it.

      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 
      Paul
