The spindles on these decks have an enormous rotating mass and are not as tight as some others. A little end play is OK but there are some things to consider. The spidles should be shimmed properly so each blade is the same height for a proper cut. Ther is supposed to be a small spring below the lower bearing to help add a load against the thrust bearings on the top of the assembly. Grass and debris will clog this spring, and some times they get tossed when serviced. But they need to be there. Also these spindles were made to be greased regularly. They should have no side play. Take a look at the manuals Maynard directed you to. These contain tons of info on these tractors.

The snap ring should be available from any parts store. I had the same question about the end play in the spindles, mine has up to 3/16". Pulled one of the spindles apart to see what it was like. In case you haven't, the spindle is encased in roller bearings, (I'd actually call them needle bearings) and the spindle itself is the inner race so to speak. That allows for the end play. The parts manual shows the spring at the bottom and the thrust washer at the top, but without a new one in front of me I couldn't tell if mine were good or bad so just re-assembled it and have been using it as is. As mentioned, I think plenty of grease would be important here.

      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 
      Paul
