B-210 1st time running, few things to be addressed

Recommended Posts

Guest
I just got my B-210 running for the first time, I was told the motor was blown but proved that to be wrong. Exhaust valve was frozen. Started machine and tranny works but it is very hard to shift between gears( if passing through neutral ). My Vari drive is frozen and the pulleys don't move. I was reading up on taking the vari drive apart and was open for any tips. How hard do these machines shift ? I dont have anything to compare it to. I changed the fluids in both tranny and bevel gear case. Thanks, Al

Al, One quick thing to check on your stiff shifting is the neutral safety switch. It sits just above the knuckle where the shaft from the shifter connects to the tranny. Make sure that it is not putting too much resistance on the shift rod... Mine was, and someone had me check it -- a simple fix. As far as your VariDrive, you may want to CAREFULLY try some PBBlaster on the pins that the split pulley halves slide in and out on... but don't get it up on the belt or the belt will slip! Kent

Kent, Thanks I will check and try both suggestions. I have been reading this site since this past winter and it's been a long time coming waiting to get my B-210 running. All I really did to it so far are free up the exhaust valve, rebuild the carberator, new head gasket, new plug and of course change the oil. Do you know where they sell that PB Blaster ?

Kent, Thanks again. I must say this site is such a positive part of owning one of these old tractors. I almost sold my tractor for lack of resources / knowledge before I discovered this site. Now I know that we have unlimited amounts of knowledge to be shared through this site. I get responses faster here than from my wife and we are together. This discussion section is both entertaining and educational. Thanks again, Al

Al, in reduein my B112 sometimes areo kroil would undo what pb blaster{NAPA} would not. So far only sorce I've found for areo kroil is industrial type hardware supply stores, likely to carry welding stuff, Hilti tools and the like.dito, this site is great to be on<

      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
