Warmer weather = tractor time = thank you

Recommended Posts

Well the temperature around here got up in the lower 40s today so I got some good tractor time in. I did some final disassembly of a 3310v chassis, I got a 10 hp briggs engine running for my brother in law, and I finally got around to my Homelite T-10. I don't know why but thought the engine had a broken connecting rod. I took a good look at it and it did have compression so good news, no bad connecting rod. I checked for spark and cleaned the points. I checked the oil level then took the carb off for a quick clean up. I added some fuel and it fired right up! Now for the "thanks" part. The trans was locked up. Looking at the shift handle I noticed it was bent forward from someone trying to force it in gear. I checked the archives and found a couple topics about stuck transmissions and figured I would give the screwdriver trick a shot. Sure enough the fork was shifted over into first gear not allowing the shifter ball to slide in which is why the handle bent. So I now end this topic with a "thank you!" to the club because I now have another running and "driving" tractor. Well worth the $10!!! THANKS! ,Tom

Hard to imagine that a scant six months ago we were wondering thru a warehouse of wonders, huh? Well in two months it will be time to start things going again. My big job will be the 3112H.

      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
