On that stubborn key...

 

I usually drill a dimple in the end of the key then use a punch to drive it out.

I used a vacuum once... Wasnt the smartest idea but it works to get chunks of dirt out.

Haven't messed with it much recently. Waiting to get some parts for it. I have shined up the grille chrome sides some though. Also got the left side panel for it and put on.

I am wondering re the Fastenal connection, is that some method of transport? BTW I like the Navy project some cool history.

Welcome to the forum. Fastenal stores will ship between locations on back runs. The item has to be strapped to a pallet. you can find info and start a quote online.Timing depends on their schedule but usually isn't too bad in most locations.

Well it's been a while! Had a crazy Saturday ran to NJ for this Allis B10 for a donor tractor to get much needed parts for my landlord like engine and electrical parts plus the right hand lift didn't hurt either :smilewink:  Same trip I picked up a green machine that'll be the project when the Simplicity is done but that's another story(although I will include a photo of it) In the one photo I threw the simplicity hood and grill on the b10 to see about how it will look when done and have to admit I think it'll look pretty cool. B10 engine don't have spark and points and condensor is good so I will pull the engine to see if its an electrical issue on the magneto or if magneto itself needs to be replaced. There I'm done!

That early B10 is too complete and original to be used for parts. There are lots of parts available for your Navy Simplicity without taking that one apart. Just my .02 worth...Dave

I have to agree with Dave. There are lots worse looking tractors to cannibalize. If it was a runner I could see it bringing decent coin in my neck of the woods. Heck it even has all of its T-Bolts.

I have to agree with both of you. What I'm doing is taking off parts I need but keeping the tractor around that way if I come across a rough 64 landlord or b10 I got a nice original paint tractor to use.
