Welcome!!!!

NIce tractor.

we bought a '64 725 for my son to restore, I really like the simplicity of how they are built. I would like to get ahold of a round nose someday, just too many irons in the fire at the moment to worry about one.

 

Member  69L46Vert  had made some belt covers a while back, but I think he sold them all. If you can weld, he maybe able to get you a pattern or measurements so you can make/have one made.

Thanks to everyone for the Friendly welcome.. I can weld and have a welder so would be great if someone did have the correct length etc. I have a new question for anyone that can help before I start hammering etc. lol I have started tearing the D.B Suburan apart sanding grinding getting ready for paint. I have a question about the Clutch. I figured out the the top half of the clutch screws off leaving the small hub on the shaft. Does this hub that is left on the shaft screw off or does it pull off with a puller etc. Looks as though it just slips on the saft and isn't threaded. I took a couple of pictures so you can see what I am talking about becasue it is hard to explain.. Thanks..

Theres a pin that goes though the nut and shaft, you have to push it on out the other side. you need to be careful here, as under the big pulley is the ball lock parts of the clutch and its a lot of small ball bearings and washers and all them are loose. There should  be a manul for this tractor in our sections here. Your going to need it to put it back together.

 

Not sure why someone needs a welder for the belt guard, as its all bends and nothing is welded to it. You will have to put some hole saw holes in a few places to go over the foot rest and one for the clutch.

Hey thanks I was logging back on to say I figured it out. Lol It was late last night when I was looking at it and stopped at that point. I am working on it now and figured it out also found service manual. I noticed another part I think im missing. Isn't there supposed to be a bracket with a notch in it beside the gear shifter to hold in neutral position? I have came a long way on getting stripped down and ready for sanding, priming and paint. I will posts a few pics later.

yes but the bracket is bolted to the top of the belt cover, and both have slots to adjust the position of the clutch handle.

Thanks for all the info. and the help. I have pretty much have it in pieces and now sanding and reading for paint etc.  Does anyone maybe have the info. on the rear end shaft seals. I am sure I can measure them and cross them over to find something but thought someone may have already done this and may have the seals size and maybe Manufactor and seal number. Here are a few pics. of where I stand in the restoration process.

Thanks again..

I am fairly sure that I am now the owner of this tractor, it is about 85% restored at this point and still missing the belt guard. I will try to upload a pic later.
