Reverse Gear Question and Illustration

Recommended Posts

grnlark
I've figured out why reverse doesn't work on the 57 Wonderboy. There is one gear that pivots with the gear lever and controls forward and reverse depending which way the drive is spinning it. It appears that there must be a missing ring clip of some sort that would hold the pivot gear on the shaft and in place. With the clip missing, the gear rides to the end of the shaft making forward still barely catch, but not making contact for reverse. The arrow (pic 2 below) shows the groove where I believe there should be some sort of spring clip to hold the gear on the shaft. Does anyone know exactly what should be here to hold the gear from traveling side to side on the shaft? Thanks

Yes the gear is hold on with a spring, but there a washer in between the gear and spring clip. For shifting into reverse there shoukd a lever on the other side of the frame which goes behind the drive pulley that rotates the small gear on the bottom counter clockwise.

sm06Funny you mention that. I was just saying to my brother this morning on the phone that the ring clip might be sitting in the sludge at the bottom of the pan. sm06 I popped the cover off last night in a dark corner of my garage with a flashlight, so I didn't do a very detailed inpsection. I have to look at it later today. It was pouring last night, and cold, so I didn't really feel like farting around out there. I'll keep you posted.

This is for the Clinton engine models 1957. The briggs models 450 and 575 are different. The retaining ring/circlip should be available at any good parts store. [img]/club2/attach/UCD/WonderBoyTransmission.JPG[/img]

For $0.73, I've fixed reverse! God bless America! :D I did find the original washer and locking ring in the sludge! sm06 (see pic below). Regardless, I felt more confident (from a longevity standpoint) in using my new stainless washer and snapping E ring. I may go back to the original washer, but not the original snap ring. I know the grease is bad. For now (and I mean for like the next week) I just added some new grease to get all systems up and running. It's all going to get totally torn down in a few weeks. A sincere thank you to all of you that assisted me with this!!!! dOd

      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
