Vacuum

Recommended Posts

I found my dads old vacuum, its a simplicity 1690024. Its been sitting outside not covered for at least 10 years. I brought it home cleaned it up a bit, mounted it to the tractor, put a new belt on it, fired up tractor, engaged pto, wa la it works. they just don't make things like they use to. Now that I know its operational I'll rebuild it, if I can find or fabricate the few items I need. 

I'm actually looking for the adaptor that goes on the deck, if I can't fine one I'll fabricate one. Also looking for the 7.25" plastic tube for it also.

The deck boots were different depending on the 42" or 48" decks.  

Also, there was a posting a long time ago that had a website that sold different tubing sizes that would suit your needs.

      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
