Blade deck swap

Recommended Posts

richp
will be putting my old 42" deck on a 7000 series, and I noticed the center drive pulley on the deck has a real deep groove in it. It lookes like a b series belt could fit in it. Is the deep groove for keeping the belt from flying off? I put a larger (5") pulley on and it cut great but the belt groove is no where near as deep.

If the deck is off an old foot dragger, you may need to do some modifications because the height adjusters might not clear the running boards. Was the deck working with the pulley with the deep groove?

Yea, it worked fine, doesn't look worn. A far as adjusters, I replaced t handles with bolts to clear running boards. I can get rollers almost 2" off the ground before ot hits running boards.

Just cut the running bourds off and you won't have to modify the deck. Plus you can retain the foot-loose feeling of these old FDT's.:D

After foot dragging for years, I gotta say I love the running boards. Nothing I hated more than going over rough lawn and with my heel resting on the deck I felt like jello.

      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
