transmission trouble

Recommended Posts

Hello, Well, we got a simpicity 7010 for my wife and she was using is all day. We went to move it this evening, I put it into 2nd and let out the brake and the engine started to bog down. I let up and tried to shift into 1st but it wouldn't go up into 1st or 3rd (wouldn't go past half way between gears). Confused, I put it into neutral and let out the brake so I could inspect things... but it lurched forward. So I shut it down. I checked and when it's in 2nd or Reverse the transmission is locked. When it's in neutral it's in some forward gear. And I couldn't get it up into 1st or 3rd at all. Anyone had this problem? Is it possible for something to get misaligned with the shifter? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like its time for the "bent screwdriver" trick. Look at this link: "http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/portal_External.asp?LinkID=153&LinkName=Manual%20Transmission%20Stuck%20In%20or%20Between%20Gears&CatID=18&CatTitle=Transmissions&URL=http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=11763&" Found it in, "Technical Tips & Articles, Got the $50 tractor home". Good luck,

      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
