Fiber disk alternative?

Recommended Posts

This is what I found in a parts tractor I started taking apart. A disc made out of plastic.

Looks to have been cut out with a circle saw cutter.

Is about 3/16th inch thick.

It must have worked, not sure how long it has been in there.

Well I got you beat on that one. I was swapping a engine for a friend of Rob-B's and found that they used two cut off disks. :O This was on a 700 so the rubber disk must have came apart. Well as shade tree as it is, it dose work!:D

A SHEET OF 1/4" plywood will handle a surprising amount of torque I will often line the outside of a door jamb with 1/4" ply wood to make it pretty much "kick in" proof, and actually there isn't a great amount of torque in front of the transmission anyway. If the tractor were designed with the transmission inline with the engine and the plywood were on the output shaft of the transmission it wouldn't last past the first popped clutch.

      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
