New Dilemma

Recommended Posts

Spacers would do the trick, but it sounds like your tires are too wide for the rims, causing them to balloon outward. Different rims are another option. On my HB-212, the tire chains didn't touch but came uncomfortably close to the fan shroud on the hydrostat. I had an extra set of rims here (believe they were from a Bolens). When I measured, the offset of the rims was 1" wider than the Allis rims.

Mike, my wife's puller is the one that are probably taking about. Originally I took the cone clutch off, but recently put it back on. The rims and lug I have on it, did the same. I made spacers, but with the extra wide and no offset rims, it still hit the "cone" of the cone clutch. I just took the "cone" off for now. I have two more spacers I'm going to put on, but need longer bolts. I don't need the cone clutch for the winter, so I'm going to leave it like that for now. If you don't have any plans on using the clutch, you can buy some time, by doing the same thing. Oh just to give you an idea on spacers, if you have an old axle laying around, cut off the two bolt patterns and blow a hole in the center of one. That is all I did for one of my sets. The other I made out of 1/2 stock.

Those ags must be really wide compared to the stock tires. I just measured a little over 2" clearance with the stock turf tires. I was thinking of getting ag tires, but now I'm having second thoughts. Tacey

Had me wondering the same thing.

I have 26x12x12's on my 7117. I have wide rims with standard offset. The tires were on the cone clutch. Could not start motor,as they put the brakes to the clutch. I used the dual wheel adaptor, bolted it directly to axle flange and reverversed wheels to bring tires closer to tractor. I had the dual wheel aqdpators on hand so it was easier than making spacers.

      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
