I was digging through literature again this weekwnd and got all my origonal photos pulled out and grouped together.  I have a few neat ones I will share. 

This week’s is a photo of the assembly line showing two Simplicity workers stuffing a Lombardini into a 7790.  Dated December 1984.

No PPE wah

 

No side shields on glasses, no hearing protection, no gloves etc.

OSHA would have a field day today on those conditions.

 

But cool pics though.  Lots of archive sites out there, look for some from Fords Rouge plant for some scary ones.

You see that! That guy is lifting that engine with just two hands LOL.

 

Folks were much stronger back then.  Did that kind of stuff routinely.

And Josh, thanks for sharing the pics.

I agree.  When I was in the 5th grade, the cool guys in the 8th grade chewed tobacco.  So we all brought raisins in our lunch, chewed them into a juicy mash, and went around the playground spitting brown juice just like the "big guys."

      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
