Dumb Attack Solved

Recommended Posts

Roy
Yesterday after mowing the back yard and blowing the Sovereign off it would not start. No click, nothing, but the ignition switch was loose in the dash. Since I was soaking wet hot I just pushed it into the garage. Today I looked into the problem thinking I had a bad connection at the ignition switch or a seat safety switch problem. Tightened the ignition switch in the dash, seat switch checked OK, and cleaned some corrosion from the battery terminals. During this process I discovered the real problem. I had left the mower deck cone clutch engaged! Nothing like being overheated to cause a dumb attack. Good thing is that I did fix the loose switch and battery connection corrosion. All's well that ends well. :o)

      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
