Legacy Lives Again

Recommended Posts

This may not deserve to be on this site at its only 20 years old but I saw this rusted out Legacy that sat outside its entire life used for just plowing snow. The previous owner clearly had no respect for it and it was surely doomed. I paid $300 for it because I noticed the engine had been replaced in 2008 and it fired right up with fuel dumped in the carb so I figured I could get my money back worst case. Got it home and my first task was to repair the fuel cutoff solenoid and it ran perfect with no noises or smoke. It then was an easy choice to begin bringing it back to life. I have so many hours bending sheet metal and sanding and painting but it’s back to a usable condition. I know it’s the wrong color orange but this was not a vintage restoration but a return to a functioning tractor. Everything works great with plenty of TLC put into it. The wheel weights were really tore up so I used 1/2 inch steel plate with threaded holes to holes to hold the wheel weights and steel plates on. As a bonus I have another 30 pounds of weight. The suitcase weight bracket I made hold six but I only have four installed right now. The plow was rusted and bent up so bad I was unsure I could safe it but it worked out with welding in lots of material.  I wanted to give a shout out to Sam who helped me out greatly. Here are some before and after pics.

      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
