Broadmoor 717 steering

Recommended Posts

I got the little thing running and mowing now, what a processsm00 but it is interesting to me that my 64LL is turning a tighter radius than the Broad. I can't seem to find a spec for the Broadmoor/homesteaders saying what they are supposed to be for turn radius, so does this make sense or is something amiss? It doesn't seem right, but I have made the gear mesh proper and all points are lubricated.

Actually, the camber seems more shallow on it than the LL or the factory pix for that matter. I have new spindle pivot bushings on the way, so hopefully that will help. The PO somehow repaired the tie rod 3/8" too long, so the front tires were scrubbed bald when I got to it. That is correct now and it runs better, but I would have thought the LL being so much larger would have a larger radius. Perhaps I will consult my hot-rod steering engineer for some mod advice :D

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
