My new 3416S

Recommended Posts

Picked this 341S up Saturday in Desoto Mo, off Craiglist.
Was only looking for a Tiller but found a package deal that I could not pass. Adjusted the the carb and choke and the original 16 single Briggs fires right up and purrs. No the bad.. the Generator is not hooked up so no charging The real bad.. No reverse.. Adjusted the shuttle the best I could today but need new belts and something called a neutral brake pad ? When I move the shuttle to reverse she really squeals and the planetary hub gets real hot :( The planetary brake band seems to have enough grip. Ok shuttle experts how do I service the planetary ??? Oh by the way -- the wife was not impressed..but how many of our wives are :D add to below.... NOW I own a Simplicity.

The drive (planetary) pulley should not spin in reverse. There is a brake band that should clamp it when reverse is applied. I don't think the neutral pad would effect reverse.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
