t-816 clutch

Recommended Posts

I need some info on how to set or rebuild my clutch.
Its getting real hard to shift gears, and the instruction manual isnt much help, or I am doing something wrong. I got this tractor from my dad and love the cut, but I cant get it into gear.

Looks like you have the 6216 Simp equivalent (THANKS TO KENT FOR THE CROSS-REF). You have to make the front belt stop turning before you can shift in or out of gear. Check to see that the front belts guards under the engine are about 1/8"-1/4" away from the belt when it is tensioned. Don't grind your gears - they are $$$.

I have had the same problem since putting the new drive belt on the B12. I have to reach back and stop the pulley before shifting. As the belt is getting more flexable it's not as bad. I'll check the guard clearance to see if I can improve it. Tim

      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
