broadmoore high low pulley assembly

Recommended Posts

mudpatrol1

so today i picked up a broadmoore that i believe to be late 60,s early 70,s as a parts machine. the main reason i bought it was for the high low pulley assembly. this tractor only had a 2 speed transmission,and i wanted to install it in either my b208 super or 738.anyone know if this is possible,or has done this ? both tractors have the cut out in the fender for the high low shifter.

If it is a 2 speed trans, it is most likely a 6hp Broadmoor, or a 7hp 707 or 717, which puts it from 1963 to 1967. These have a rounded hood with a distinct V shape to the nose of the hood. Later Broadmoors have a "square" or flat hood. Transmissions interchange as far as I know, but you will lose the PTO option with a 2 speed vs the 3 speed. Tim

Was there a model 727 with a flat hood and 2 speed trans?

I kind of misread the post - I haven't done it, but I am pretty sure other guys on here have put the Hi-Lo Range onto a 3 speed. Not sure if true bolt on or not.

When my 2 speed trans went bad on my 63 Broadmoor, I put a 3 speed trans off a 738 in it. I used the drive pulley & HI/LOW off the 63 broadmoor & it worked just fine. The only thing was I had to figure out where 1st, 2nd, & 3rd were on the gear shift selector, but no big deal. Seems like you are trying to do the opposite I was doing. I would think it would work ,but not sure. The drive pulley shaft should be the same size. Not sure if the HI/LOW shifter rod is the same lenght & shape for the 738.

The B207 doesnt have a Simplicity trans....you would have to get creative to make a hilo fit the Peerless. I have never looked close enough at mine to see if it could be fitted in some way.

The 738 will require a different or modified shifter lever to the hilo....the early round hoods used a different type. There is a bent and straight shifter version of the hilo for small frames.

it does have the distinct v on the hood,the tag is still on the machine and hopefully i can read it. i guess once i tear into it,i will know better. neither machine had a rear pto so i am not worried about that. basically these are going to see light duty during there golden years such as driving around tractor shows. thanks to everyone who replied
