limited slip differential

Recommended Posts

When I lift the rear wheels of my 3112V sovereign off the ground should I be able to spin them independently (hold left tire and spin right tire)?right now I can't and was wondering if my differential is messed up. Thanks,Mike P.S. I just recently joined and think it was the best $10.00 I've spent in a long time!

If you can I would say it is messed up, That would be an open diff. not a limited slip. Leave one wheel on the ground while in neutral and the brake off and see if you can spin the other. With the ground holding one wheel you should be able to spin the other. Most people would not be able to hold one with enough pressure and spin the other with enough force to over come the limited slip part. JMHO. Yes this has been the best $10 a year I have ever spend.

I backed off the traction control bolts jacked up the left side and tried to turn it with the right tire on the ground and could only move the left tire about an inch or so,retorqued the control bolts to 20 ft.lbs and same thing. Is this how it should be?

How can you tell if one has limited slip or plain differential? My BIL said the 416H I got from him was supposed to have limited slip, but it spins like mad when light-sided. How ya tell??

      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
