Default Simplicity 7119 restoration.

Theres a long story behind getting tis tractor but pretty much we got it for free. Has sat for a few years covered up, had a bad rear seal in the engine. I decided to tear into it and get it looking new and be a project tractor. Eventually I want to buy a small diesel to put in it.

What it started out as...pretty straight still.








Pulled the engine, gas tank, battery, and took the hood off and ended up with this.



The mower deck is still in great shape! Figured itd be rusted to nothing.



Alotta oil and dirt under the engine on the frame...



Engine sitting on the tailgate before I started taking it apart.



Took the heads off and some other small things to check the valaves and pistons, everything looked good so I painted it all up and put it back together.



Doing more sandblasting tonight

Thanks guys! Worked on the truck the last 2 nights so havent had anytime to work on it. I was just wondering if theres anywhere to get decals or decals cusotm made?? The dash is going to be polished aluminum with balc decals to indicate what the levers are. I may do that to replace the decal on down below the seat too. idk yet. This tractor is gonna be my "super" garden tractor that will be showed, used, and maybe even pulled alittle

Got mostly everythign torn apart, split it, now just need to take down the hudraulics out of the front half so everythign gets good paint. The rear end needs alot of cleaning though before paint. Have alot to paint atleast (I like painting, lol) Eventually going to get aluminum wheels for the whole way around with tractor tread tires on the back and some wider tires on the front.

Pictures! A pic from a few days ago, this was the dat after I pulled the engine and started sandblasting.



Getting ready to split it apart for paint.



The rear end, needs alot of cleaning, going through all the lines and pulleys and watnot.



Fornt half, hoping to get it in primer by tomorrow night, focusing just on the front half right now so I can tear out the hydraulics and remember how to put it all back in.

Rear half is painted, prepping the frame so it can get paint tonight so I can put the halfs back together and on all 4 wheels so I can roll it around. Having 2 of the round plates that hold the driveshafts together machined out of metal for more strength than the plastic ones.

I wouldn't change the coupler--it needs to be able to flex and absorb vibration.

Well I lost alittle motive on this project for awhile, back at it again! Put new headgaskets in lastnight just have to torque the head bolts, need torque specs on them. Want to bench start the engine but never bench started an engine except for the large diesels at school that are already set up for bench starting. Any help is appreciated with the bench starting. Want to keep it simple.
