"new" rollers

Recommended Posts

I resently purchased some rollers for my mower on ebay. I was one of only two bidders and the bid was run up within $.01 of my maximum just minutes before closing. Does that sound a bit fishy? These rollers were listed as used on e-bay but they did not have a mark on them and no wear on the bushings as well. I guess I still got them at a better than new price and as far as I can see they are new. I was wanting some of the longer rollers to replace the rollers on the main roller shaft but the rollers were all 4". I thought that wasn't a good thing until I pulled the old rollers off and realized the tremendous wear on the shaft under the "bearing" bushing locations. It turns out that by using the new 4" rollers instead I was shifting the bearing points to new un-worn areas of the shaft and thus restoring the original height of the mower. Instead of having 3 long rollers I have 5 short ones.

My expertise is in carpentry and related crafts. The closest I have ever been to being a welder is, I sold high class stick rod in the 80'S. Maybe it is time to take up a new skill. I'd probably be 80 before I were any good at it.

      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
