blade deck interchange

Recommended Posts

Just went to help my uncle on his 3008 lawn tractor.
He said he was mowing when the left side hit a root,
so now whenever he mows the
left side grinds into the ground. I took the blade
deck off and checked runout on the left blade and
found it to be over 1/2 inch difference but the
real shocker was that the deck is so rotted that it
bent the bearing housing were it bolts to the frame.
My question is will my spare 32" deck off a Yoeman fit
were his 36" is,they look compatible but I haven't
measured yet. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem several years ago. I took the
deck apart and had a local machine shop scab a repair
plate over the rotted area where the spindle mounts
and cut new square holes in the replate to mount the
spindle. Has worked great since then for several years.
Obviously the repair plate moved the spindle up or
down about 1/8" but it is not noticeable on the lawn.
Cost was reasonable. Hope this helps.

      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
