Illustrated Questions

I'm now up to 3 Broadmoors to make one working mower to cut my grass this year. I have 2 identical decks (MFG# 990422) that both have just an open hole for a discharge chute. There are 2 small, square holes that look like mounting points for a proper chute. Is something missing?


One of the axles appears to be a hub sleeve slid over the axle proper with a bolt through the holes. The sleeve/hub is torn at the bolt(though this picture is near worthless for showing anything). Anyone have a replacement 3-bolt rim pattern hub. See my "Parts wanted" ad.


One transaxle has a second shift lever. Is this a "creeper" and how does it work?


As always, so many questions, so little time. Thank you all so much for your collective knowledge and wisedom. Dave

Dave; don't know about a chute on your deck but it will cut just fine without one. In the second pic, remove the hub and weld a washer on each side in line with original holes and reinstall with a slightly longer bolt. Third pic is a high low planetary gearset. Sitting on the seat, right hand lever works the high/low. May be shifted with engine running or stopped but not with tractor moving. Doubles number of trans speeds. Hope that helps....Dave

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
