Recommended Posts

Hey club, has anyone found replacement nuts like the one in the picture ?

They are all over my old simplicity's ( side covers, hood, steering wheel tower) and I have some missing or broken.

Any help is always appreciated

Thank you

Gene

My local Ace Hardware has them, and I've seen them at other hardware/big box stores.  Whatever local establishment has a good variety of specialty hardware in trays by the nuts and bolts would be worth a stop.

I  bought a bunch a few years back from McMaster-Carr.  If you find a place with a good selection, they will have them in different thread sizes, and also to work on different thicknesses of metal.  The ones I got were kind of loose because they were made for thicker metal, so I bent the ears a bit to tighten them up.

      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
