I have a 3212h with a leaky vickers rearend. I took it to the local simplicity dealer to have them fix it. They gave me a $500 estimate so i said forget it. I got to thinking though. I have access to a 3 speed rearend of of a 2012. But i was wondering if i put it on would the 48" deck still fit? would the tractor still be the same length with that rearend? I would have to use the side plates from the 2012. Where is the 3212 longer at? the main frame, or from the bgb back?

You could try the side plates from the 3212, but since it was a hydro, it may not have all the holes drilled in the right places for a 3-speed. I would try it myself. You could always line up the corresponding short and long plates and drill any additional holes that are needed. Be sure that you have the correct ends of the plates aligned before marking and drilling any new holes.

The 3 speed case and the Variable are the same as far as I know. Side plates off the variable should fit to the 3 speed and then onto your tractor. Only thing is you may need a longer shift rod or the one that came with the variable tractor.

      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
