4041 Support Plate Help

Recommended Posts

I am having dificulty removing the support plate from the transaxle. I am cleaning the brakes and while I am there, I thought I would replace the brake seal. Before I break something, I thought I would ask for some advice in removing the plate. I have only owned the tractor for a couple of months, so it is discovery time. The newest discovery is part of the frame has been cut (as can be seen in the pic). Any ideas why? Glenn

The frame was cut out so the brake assembly could be removed without sliding the rear end towards the rear of the tractor an inch and a half. (a few more bolts and it would have slide with no problem) Take the top off the rear end housing and you can get to the bearing plate and tap it loose and out. It's a machined surface so it's a snug fit. Once you break the O-ring seal it should slide out fine. But you will need to keep it straight. Put a new seal and O-ring in while you have it apart. Be sure to lube up the new seal and O-ring before putting it all back together. Use a tourch to cook the oil out of the brake linings and scuff the wear surfaces up and you'll have good brakes for awhile.

I was able to locate one brake seal yesterday and one side is completed. Does anyone know what the corresponding NAPA part number is for the Simplicty brake seal (part# 168006 superseded by 2168006). NAPA is not able to cross-reference. Thanks Glenn

Dave - You are correct. The seal I pulled was a Victor 64050-PE. This cross references to a NAPA 10075. Also, it is half the price of the Simplicity Seal. It will be in tomorrow morning. If there is a part mismatch, I will post it. However, I thought it would be good to document the part numbers for others. Thanks again for you valuable assistance. Glenn

      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
