Thank You

I just wanted to say "Thanks". Last time I mowed with my 3212V the shift fork slipped and locked in reverse. I backed the tractor up to the garage and parked it. I checked on here for the "Bent Screwdriver Trick". I searched the forums and read all I could to try to understand what to do. The pics posted by Daddycat helped me to understand how it works and the tutorial helped me understand why it happens. I went home eager to bend a screwdriver and try this "quick fix". Well I had a hard time bending a screwdriver enough to pull it out of gear, so I grabbed a fairly long allen wrech and tried that. It was tuff to see what I was doing, since the large pulley on the variable drive is partially blocking the view into the rear end fill hole, but know that I understood what had to happen I went by feel. I located the rear fork, slid the allen wrech behind it, grabbed a pliers and slid the fork back into the neutral position. I replaced the plug and tested it out, works great. Becoming a member of this site just seems to get better and better. Thanks again.

      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
