Another Basket Case...

Recommended Posts

What can I say...I think I'm sick. I picked up a 5010 in pieces this weekend. Local kid bought this with the tiller to do his mom's garden. Got it running and he was driving it around the yard he said it got stuck in 3rd. He tore the transmission out of it, and split the case. Looks like he got 1 gear out, and then lost interest. When I showed up, the battery was dead, so it didn't even turn over. I did pull it by hand with the recoil starter, and it has compression. I picked it for 100 bucks with a complete small frame tiller. Looking for a repair manual if anyone has one. I need to get the tranny back together, and get this thing back on its wheels. As far as this things future...Its undecided. I bought it as parts. Then I thought...it might make a good zamboni...Kinda like this (click the picture to watch a video of this thing in action)

I create a rink on my folks pond every year, and shoveling the dang thing takes FOREVERHere is the "show"

Never mind the fishing poles...I was multi-tasking :D

I WISH he would have just left it alone...

This doesn't look right...

The Tiller pulley, a random (at this point) gear and the bolts

1998 12 HP L head Briggs. This is the real reason I bought this tractor. Something weird I noticed...The Model code is 28B702-1020-E1. After the E1, someone used an engraver, and etched an R into it...Does that mean it was rebuilt? Maybe a factory Reman?

Finally, the ALL IMPORTANT tiller hitch.

Id just wait for a cheap yeoman or Broadmoor with a 3 speed and swap trannys. I never did like the idea of opening up a tranny case myself.

Looks to be in good shape otherwise, though the pullys on the tiller and tranny don't appear to be the correct factory parts.

id="quote">The fishing is fun...but so is learning new stuff. I've never had the opportunity to get into a transmission before...at least, not like this. Its really not bad...I got it all torn down yesterday, and don't really see anything obviously wrong with it. All the gears look good, the bearings run smooth, etc. It was a little dirty, and one of the pawls has some wear on it. The biggest issue I can see is the input shaft is a little mucked up. Looks like the pulley keyway sheared, and it got brazed and re-cut. Still doesn't explain why it locked in gear.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
