Thanks to everyone, a few specifics to follow:

Greg, you sure did a good job on that tiller drive! And as far as that hole is concerned, once you drop her into the dirt & get all dusty, it won't bother you one bit!

Wow that looks great. I would be scared to use it, it looks to nice to get dirty.

Looks like a fine job. It'll look better after a few passes in a field.

You guys are right about it getting dirty, thats what it was made for, thats what I got it for, and it sure seems to love doing so.

Great job, Greg. That looks very similar to the tiller for my Ford, except it is shaft driven instead of belt. Bet they are cousins.

Thats why I thought it should go in the general implement forum Kenny, instead of in the Simplicity one, figured there were apt to be some others that were similar.

Greg,thanks for sharing that with us.

Thanks for the good write-up and pictures on your tiller rebuild. Also thanks for uploading the Simplicity Repair Manual for Tractor Mounted Tillers to the manuals section.

I am happy to be able to contribute to this site and its members, on my way to pay back for the info I have taken from here.

Thanks again to all for the good comments.

Good job Greg! Looks to do a great job! Also I know why you left the hole in the deck, The added dirt increases down pressure! :smilewink: :thumbs: Shawn
