What's a "bgb"?

Recommended Posts

WITom
I've seen the term mentioned on a few posts now. Usually, if I put my giant sixth-grade-educated brain to it, I can figure these terms out. But this one has me stumped! Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks! Tom

The real question, which I could figure out by testing a bgb, is how many turns the drive shaft makes to the 90 degree conversion on both sides of the BGB. I would guess these are 1 to 1, but they may not be. If so then the RPM's off these Briggs engines (or other?) would be the same at the PTO/drivetrain pulleys. The bonus question would be to figure out what the RPM's of the lawn decks and tillers end up with. I did test that the 1690039 tiller takes 10.5 turns to turn the tines one time. Anyone know these answers?

Beegee "A" was Barry.8D Beegee "B" must be a quick way to refer to Maurice and Robin, since they were twins.8D8D That would make Andy Beegee "C". 8D That's debatable, though, because he was never officially a Beegee.

Rodney, thanks. My 3012 has the tiller still attached, so I should be able to test that number. It's just a time thing. Too many tractors, not enough time.

Ron, there were versions of the later model tractors (at least the 7000 series, and I think the 7100 series) called "6-speeds" that used a different type of "high-low" setup with two sets of pulleys and two belts. Michael, that's a pic of the high-low on my Big Ten from when I was putting it together from different parts tractors...

I have wondered myself sometimes what these abbreviations are. At the risk of sounding stupid, I held out until I figured out what a "foot dragger" was. Maybe us rookies need a glossary.While you're talking tiller ratios, the older ones are differant than newer. Not just the belt input, but inside the tiller case. You can get a lot done in a hurry if you put old yellow tiller on AC 700 series tractor, my guess is the parts would fly as far as the dirt if I kept going.

I thought 23D = 23D, there is also a 23FD (Flange Bearing). The numbers all mean something, there are websites which explain the numbers.

Try again. 23D=23D. Updated 19D with more power. 243431= completely dif. engine. Same mounting specs but a whole new design from the D series. However you do get a :) for the effort. :p

      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
