Cone Clutch

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever modified or thought about modifing a idler PTO set up (say like on a Big Ten) and converting it to a cone clutch? The thought hit me today and I was wondering if it had ever been tried?

The HB-116 That I have that was Built by SmilinSam has a cone clutch. It is all documented in Sam's post "Variable to Hydro #2" which is posted on the Simple tractors site under "Do It Yourself" [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/variable_to_hydro2.htm[/url] I believe that Kent's HB-216 also has a cone clutch and it is documented in his post "Variable to Hydro #1" which can also be found on the Simple tractors site under "Do It Yourself" [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/variable_to_hydro.htm[/url]

Yes, it's relatively straight-forward to swap out BGB's from one with a cone clutch, replacing the original. The challenge is simply in getting a linkage setup to engage/disengage it, since the "tunnel" on an foot-dragger is much smaller than on a RBT... It's just "shade-tree engineering" to make it work....

      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
