Recommended Posts

s_stephen

a few months ago i purchased a 420 john deere for $600 with a running honda gx670 and bad hydro. after parting out the jd on ebay i sold all but the engine and power steering and got $700 out of it after ebay fees. I am now installing the honda into my allis 720 and going to put on power steering as well as restore the tractor while it is tore down. I sold the running onan a few weeks ago for $400 so now im down to no cost in the 720.20170718_170557.thumb.jpg.635f5e4ad392ee5d8bcb935c52dab449.jpg

just got in from spraying color on the frame and transmission. I decided to make this one replicate an ac200 tractor so the transmission is orange and the cowel on the hood will be black20181103_214944.thumb.jpg.754b851770cb736d7cb9a9f006efa2fc.jpg20181103_214954.thumb.jpg.8b65b8a648190c41a24360243ea23b60.jpg

Stephen, I've got a question on your steering , on Sunstar unit I used on the Kubota build all the fittings came out of the end, I'm just wondering where yours come out and what you had planned for them ? I've always wanted to do this when I had mine and had all the parts to do it but it always just got shuffled to the rear of my project list.

I used all 3/8 hoses and it worked pretty good, had to build bracket to hold the sector. 

Just curious as to how you planned.

      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
