    Well, I recently brought my Simplicity to my grandpa's so i could get it running. I will be ordering the used pump soon. Today We decided to lower the ROPS down to the Fender so they wouldn't wobble so much and make them a bit stronger. First, We cut the mounting bars down 3 inches (so the bottom of ROPS sit on the fender) and rebolted it on. Then drilled some holes so I could bolt the fenders to the bottom of the ROPS but it wasnt an easy task. We had to use clampt to pull the fenders in a little and bolt them down. In the end, the ROPS are VERY sturdy and do not move at all. This was not the only thing we did though, we also mounted my new seat. Made 2 brackets and the seat is now mounted to the tractor.

    Looking good Jacob, hopefully you'll get her turned around for a profit, and be one step closer to a larger tractor.

    well, my injection pump is in! same as the old one, just need to install it. When i had the tractor at newholland, i put all the parts in a bag but today i went through the bag and i might be missing some parts. Hopefully they are all there or this could set me back a bit.

    Well, i couldnt help but mess with it a little today. i set the new injector pump in and hooked up the throttle to it but i started looking in my bag of parts and i found 2 parts that i didnt know where they go and what they are for. One has what looks like the end of an air compressor hose and what looks like something like a filter. And it has an adjusting knob. The other part is just a spring. It is not for the inside of the pump since it is compleatly "clean" and has no oil/diesel on it. The rest of the parts look familiar to me so they shouldnt be a problem.

    edit, i figured out what the spring was for.

    well, this morning i commenced with installing my fuel injector pump. Was pretty strait forward. set the pump in its hole, attach the kill switch, bolt in place. For those who may be or will some day in the future need the info on this pump, here is some information on it.....

    it is a ZEXTEL fuel injector pump.
    Made in Japan
    NP - PFR3KD5571NP7
    assembly number 104294 - 3040

    My old pump may still be fixable so i have it stored in a safe place until i decide what to do with it. next, part II

    Once the pump was in, i hooked up the air assembly to the engine and connected the fuel lines to the injector pump. Next, i attached a small hose from the fuel filter to the pump and hooked the ground wire back up. I put the small spring back on that pulls the throttle rod. I noticed the over fill for the collant had a broken end so the small hose connecting it to the radiator is just hangin and if the tractor ever heats up to hot, the coolant will land on the ground or all over the front axle. Will need to fix this. I put the charger on the battery to be sure to get a good charge to it for starting. I tightend down the air filter assembly and tried to get the tractor to fire. read part III for more.

    well, after bleeding the lines for some time, the tractor still wouldnt fire. I noticed an air leak where the injector pump is mounted which was releasing pressure from the crank case. So this meant i had to take it all back apart again to put in a new gasket.

    Well, i ended up taking it all back apart and used some mineral spirits to wipe clean the area where a new gasket will be put. The old (?aluminum?) gasket just wasnt getting the job done. I also will be putting a new gasket on the side access panel that lets you easily attach the kill switch. For tonight, i will let the mineral spirits dry and will keep rags over all the parts to keep them clean for reassembly tomarrow. I will be using "Ultra black" silicone gasket maker from Napa auto parts.

    Today, i also did a service on the tractor. When the tractor was at newholland, they had drained the tranny but they forgot to drain the oil for me. Today, i drained the 15 year old oil and replaced the old filter. I put in 3.2 qts. of new oil from Napa and put 4.5 gal. (yes, 4.5 gallons ) or hydraulic/tranny fluid in the tranny.
