Transmission/rear axle movement/noise

Recommended Posts

So last night i was working on the tractor (3416H) and noticed that the rear wheels move around almost like a bad wheel bearing. Both sides have a noticable "clunk" when i move them up and down...same kind of test you would do if you were checking the wheel bearings on a vehicle. I check the 3314V and it did not make these same noises. Also the tractor appears to have wheel weights on it for a very long time...maybe this sped up the process of wearing out the transmission? So do i need to rebuild the transmission? What years/models will interchange? Are the parts available from a dealer if I need them? bushings/bearings/shafts?? Or am I going to be making them myself (yippy) Stew

I know that the axle tube is still available so the bushing should be as well. The best way to see if parts are still available is to download your parts manual from the simplicity site. I then check Jacks website to see how much they cost. Sometimes the site will say that sorry the part is no longer available. I would then call my local dealer or a sponsor to make sure. I have had that site say NLA and they actually are. http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php http://www.jackssmallengines.com/searchdb.cfm

      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
