Big Ten Transmission troubles

Recommended Posts

My newly assembled Big Ten wont stay in first and is sometimes almost impossible to shift from 2nd/reverse up to 1st/3rd and back again. Has anyone else had this problem, I know I am probably going to have to take the rear end out and break into it. I am worried about parts and know how. PLEASE HELP LOL!!!:(

I had that problem with one. Check the shift rod to see if it is in the carrier at the front end. also check for any binding when you are sitting on the seat. Mine would shift fine with the seat up but not when you were sitting on it. there was a bolt rubbing when you put weight on it.

even with me off the tractor and the motor off it still sticks. I can use a hammer and give it a couple of very light taps to unstick the shifter shaft in the rear end, it seems to be free enough (not rusty or siezed). The shifter rod is free with no rubbing. What is this "belt stop"??

Sounds like the ball jammer that holds the gear in place is rusted and not wanting to move once it sets in the indention. Find a bottle of "Hi-tach" at a local parts store and add about a cup full to your transaxle. It climbs and strings as the parts inside turn... Drive the machine a while to get the lube all over the parts and then shift it 20 or 30 times. If that don't help pulling the tranny, removing the shifter forks and replacing the balls..

The belt stop,stops the belt when the clutch is pushed in. If the belt stop was not correctly adjusted then the pulley at the bevel gear box will still free spin and the drive pulley will still spin and not let the gears mesh properly (they grind). JH

      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
