Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


A sense of accomplishment

Recommended Posts

I picked up a B-210 that the previous owner had split the transmission to repair the shift fork from being stuck in gear.(If only he had known how easy of a fix that could have been). When he reassembled it he did something wrong and it was "locked up". It wasn't in gear and wasn't about to move. This weekend I took it apart and tried to figure out what was wrong. Well in the process of splitting the case I had gears coming out everywhere. This was my first time tearing into one of these and I was baffled. I cleaned everything up and laid it out on the bench started putting it back together one piece at a time. With the handy repair manual at my side I put it back together. After having it all together I checked the bench to make sure there wasn't any left over parts. Unfortunatly I found one, a small snap ring. Now I had to figure out where it went. I looked at the book, I looked at the transmission and thought "oh @#%*". The second shaft that is put in, the output shaft has one on the bottom. I took it apart and sure enough thats where it went. I put it on and reassembled the transmission and bench tested it. All seemed to work good. Installed it on the tractor and reassebled everything else. Time for a test drive. It worked, no grinding no slipping. I was so pleased to get it to work. Also I would like to thank all on this site for the wealth of knowledge here. If I didn't read and search the forums I would have never even tried it. I think "thedaddycat" said it well in his post. Its kind of like putting together a 3d puzzle.

This must be why a local garage charges Basic, 40$ per hr. If you watch, $45 Per Hr If you help $50 per hr If you worked on it first, $60 Hard to fix someone elses mistakes, Congratz

good job, I feel real comfortable rebuilding mower deck spindles, luckily I have not had to go into a tranny. If I ever have to though, I will feel comfortable because of the back-up help here on site. JH

My day of fixing a transaxle is on the way. I'm glad to hear it worked out so well. I am very tempted to just find another rearend that works and use it instead of fixing one of the two I got with my 101. One has a broken axle tube and the other one's axle moves around as if it is loose. The other holy grail for my is to rebuild and engine and get it to run. Again, with the use of the classified ads and ebay, it sure makes it hard to take the leap into rebuilding. Way to go and thans for the inspiration!

      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
