Non moving B-112 mowing grass again

Recommended Posts

Well folks... I'm back in the mowing business again. My B-112 is running like a champ. It turned out that the keys had come out on the main differential gear. I'm glad I checked the archives and listened to what DaddyCat had to say about differentials in general and in particular the surprise of a differential with springs. I didn't expect it, but was prepared when I saw the case start to spread as I unbolted the outer case fasteners. I figure I must've somehow knocked the keys out when I was installing the axle and differential assembly over the weekend. Kent had told me that it worked fine the last time he had it installed in one of his tractors and from the looks of the internals, he was right on the money. Thanks again Kent. The gears and springs were all in great shape inside the differential although one of the keys has bite marks on it. I cleaned it all out and then packed it with new grease before reassembling with new keys. The axle looked fine and the new keys fit with no play whatsoever. The longer bolts on in the limited slip locations worked well too. So it looks like a wrap once again. Thanks for all your help and patience in my long winded postings. Rereading my posts, I see that I tend to ramble a bit... just like this post!

Kent, I hope that I didn't imply in any way that I was displeased with the parts or that you mislead me in any way. You were clear on the condition of everything and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. When buying used parts, you are always taking a chance. Even if it had some broken parts inside, I feel that I got a good deal. My original differential was just a jumble of broken gears and spacers and washers. This last weeks ongoing adventures are just all part and parcel of owning these great old machines. Now thanks to everyone here, I'm pretty knowledgeable regarding differentials and hubs and axle tubes and how they work together. I guess I won't be so nervous when it comes to Bevel gear boxes and the such. What I did learn though is to try to have some of these harder to find parts on the shelf and ready in the event of a breakdown. It'll take some of the stress out of the whole thing.

Leo, the BGB is even simpler than the differential. The BGB pics are at the bottom of page 1 and near the bottom of page 2. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=10303&SearchTerms=frame,up,restoration,2012

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
