Well got the new motor in the LL today ,Runs real good




Bad news Took the B-112 out to clean up the driveway after plowing up all the hard pack ( About 45 Deg. )with the B-12 ) I didn't push anything hard I don't no what happened ,The key's must be really worn I thought the tire came loose because the tractor was going up and down on one side .I think the axle might have bent too :(! I have the week off and my plan is to get the big 10 done ! Good thing I have a donor rear end . Just when you think your ahead of things something always breaks

The weight on back had to add to the damage. That's why I'm a firm believer in adding as much extra weight to the wheels as possible. Fluid filling tires, then adding cast weights is the way to go. Lots easier on the drivetrain. It still adds some load to tranny when reversing direction, but still the best way to go when possible. If the casting is hogged out a bit (especially likely at seal contact area) you can build up with JB Weld. If seal goes in snug enough, best to put seal in first, then fill gaps with the JB. Good luck & hope it's easy enough to get repaired.

Well after some thinking I think I'm going to transplant a hydro in the B-112 . As for the theory of to much weight!! I don't think It's all about how much weight you have ( But yes I do agree more weight the more likely you will do damage ) If your axle keys are worn there going to roll over and break the outer axle :( Too many of us neglect to look at the play in the axle keys . Something I will be looking at on all my tractors soon,If the keys and the slots are tight I think the axle setup is pretty much bullet proof , Remember These machines are 40 years old and most of us use them like there new ( New to us) Try adding the weight we add or even doing the things we do with these old tractors compared to a new tractor of today I got a hydro out of a 3416 that works good but I cut it out of the tractor at the time ,But I have another tractor thats complete with the Vickers in it I think the brackets are the same .Elon you can jump in any time I could use your advice I know you did this a while ago Any way Hers a few pics Of what I'm up against. I've been very busy today . and I'm still trying to get the Big Ten done :O This is the hydro I want to use , came out of a 3416 Sunsrand


Will all the linkage work from this tractor It;s a 3416 Vickers

Bravo on the engine Paul,and I feel for you on the axle. Sure helps to have spare donor units sitting around. About that scoundrel Murphy......it's been a while since we had a "Murphy watch",may be time to start tracking him again! Larry

The linkage between the Vickers and Sunstrand are quite different. I think the Sunstrand requires about twice as much movement on the actuation rod as you would have on the Vickers. It will require some linkage modification, but it has been none before.

Boy, does that look familiar! Same thing happened to my 7018H a few weeks ago while blowing snow. It all started with the pulley coming off the blower (needed a new key). Then a while later while backing up I caught the front right tire on an icy snow bank and almost pulled it right off the spindle. Then the 3rd strike was the axle tube. Luckily I'm getting a used rear end from Ray this week. If everything comes in threes, I hope I'm done.

Paul, it's a straight forward bolt in swap from a HB112/HB212 hydro but there will be lots of stuff to do to fit the Sundstrand in the 112. Check out Maynards HB112. It was converted by SmilinSam like your doing and he has very good pics and description. It's on file somewhere.

Bummer on the axle Paul. Sure hope my time spent making oversize keys on the B-112 help prevent that. That green Simplicity looks a little complete to use as a donor tractor, but guess it be ok, it is a RBT donating to a FDT:D

Well guy's I decided to throw another variable in this morning I still want to do the hydro conversion , But with this being my no#1 snow machine and having to get the Big Ten done it seemed like the thing to do . I did take the axle apart to check the keys, A little worn ,I replaced the two on the axle tube I got the var. linkage all tuned up too It works much better , Heres a thought! I might try brassing the key in to the axle tube then they can't move at all and would last alot longer and if you need to replace them just heat them up the trick to that would be not melting the seal This is whats left of the old girl .My wife saw this pic. and said it looks like a farmer lives here LOL


All presure washed ready to go in






All fixed and happy, waiting for the next snow Now I can sleep tonight

      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
