Unfortunately, the Legacy hood top fits only the Legacy.  You can use an early or Legacy XL hood top, but the XL hood is vented while the early legay is not.

 

Beautiful 716!

Fantastic!  I understand how you feel.  Mine came to me with a dent to the sode of the hood.  If I could find decals, I would buy the hood panel on ebay to replace mine.

Also I read some post on the site about the front pto kit, I haven't been able to find the whole kit only the shaft and bearings separate . If anyone knows where I can get the whole kit shaft and bearings and axle sleeve please let me know where and if possible a part number. Thanks

Okay well I got the steering issue fixed it was just the nylon bushings that was worm, so I replaced them with a brass bushing all I had to do was drill the steering column out to a 7/8 hole all the other parts were good. Absolutely no play or sloppy steering. So now I'm thinking I should just sell the tractor because I really don't have the time for it anymore because of my work. I was going to do a full restore but now I'm not sure, it does need a new dash the plastic is broken. So any advice from you would be helpful. The 60 inch deck is in great condition no rust or dents

If I do keep it does anyone know where to find a dash for it? It's a nla part 

If its NLA through Simplicity it will be a challenge. Not many of these units are being parted out yet as they were a $9K mower and if you find one that is the plastic is probably also broken on it. Its one of the downfalls of newer machines having so much plastic. If enough of the dash is intact, you might be able to repair it by finding a scrap piece of plastic and cutting a patch and attaching it to the backside with JB weld or fiberglass resin. I've done a couple of JD hoods that way. Then you could use some filler on the outside and paint the entire dash with a semi-flat paint to hide it.

Ok just an update, I sold the tractor I just don't have time like I used to, I will be on the hunt for a new one that doesn't need any work. I will keep you all updated when I get a new toy. Thanks for all the replies

      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
