Big Ten/B-110 parts swap

Recommended Posts

Fred
I have a BIG TEN with a transmission that locks in two gears at the same time and a B-110 with a bad engine. What would be the best way to go in making one tractor from the two. Both are in good condition other than the aforementioned defeciencies. The B-110 has the dual range transmission and the BIG TEN has only the three speed unit. TIA

Well tractor man, I would say that swaping the Big Ten's engine onto the B110 would be the easiest by far. All depends on which tractor you like the best. The Big Ten would probably be more collectable. But I'd fix the B110 and keep that Big Ten somewhere for future restoration. Is the B110's engine fixable?

Tim - Thanks for taking the time to answer this question. The engine for the 110 has a broken rod but the block seems to be OK. I don't have a lot of experience with these units so all suggestions are welcome. I think the BIG TEN has a better "look" to it than the more "modern" squared off lines of the B-110. I didn't mention but pic of this B-110 is posted on the old Yahoo forum picture site. Thanks again Tim and to Steve who e-mailed me.

Have used thes tractors since 1966. Dealer since 80. This is not an uncommon problem. You can go in thru the fill plug at the top and snag the shift fork and get it back to neutral. The problem is wear in the shift forks and the end of the roll pins between the forks. You can open the trans. and raise the roll pins about .010 higher than the factory specs, and this will usually correct the prob. Good luck,
Al

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
