PostSubject: The simple simplicity...   Mon Jun 16, 2014 5:45 pm

Ok guys so I had another incidence of If someone doesnt buy this its going to the scrap... then it turned into these... then it turned into I now own 4 simplicity tractors... *good sigh?* I am not a huge fan of the simplicity series because I have seen them everywhere around where I live people are used to them and they arent very original. I have seen them as pullers and cut up into different things but I decided to give them a chance and try them out due to the fact that they all have a massive rear end that is a monolithic block of cast iron! I brought the biggest one home today because it is my first paid job for the company I am starting woo! :V I am using it as a test platform for several things:

Plasti-dip Coating - I am going to test the durability of the coating and ease of application.
Carb setup for briggs flatheads (is mostly a experiment to see if itd work with the deere roughly the same engine.)
Secret stuff!

And now for the pics:









Tire got a hernia...









Specs that I know of:
10hp b&s flatty
FNR high low tranny
House paint does not work well on a tractor.

To do list:
New tires
Paint
Carb stuff
Lube job

Very cool.
TIP: spread vaseline or grease on the tire next time you paint and the overspray will wipe away.

Next time you are out, grab some vinyl and recover that seat!

That's a great tip lol, I've seen people use playing cards but now I know how I'm painting mine.

Those mini ags should do good and make it look like a beefy work tractor now.

Love the looks of this old iron. If you you find too many, I'm starting a home for wayward tractors. Just haven't told the wife yet. Lol

I got an Allis Chalmers 608 (runs, mows, and sno-blows. Just needs rings).  Also have a Simplicity 728. Possibly good tranny, and everything else is good except the motor.

Mr.Modified has a old Simplicity like this. They are all on the same center-pivot frame. They just have different motors and different size tires.
