Tecumseh Microfiche #30

Recommended Posts

I had someone asking about one of these cards through one of my eBay listings. Is it about RPMs?? If its in a paper service manual somewhere I might have a copy but will have to do some digging.

Chris,

While we're talking Tecumsehsm01. Tecumseh owns(?) Peerless which manufactures the rear ends for Sunstar's, Sunstar snowblower and tiller right angle drive gearboxes, and the reduction gearbox for the Sunstar 2000 RPM rear PTO. Some of these components are also used on Deere equipment. Do you have any parts lists for these?

Yes it's fir engine RPM. The Tecumseh repair manual says refer to microfiche #30 for engine RPM range. I was wondering because I have a LEV120 that sounds like it's running a little slow.

By the way, I wonder how many people are wondering what a microfiche is? I have what I was told by Diane? at the Simplicity tech pubs department that I have the last unopened full set of Simplicity and Deutz-Allis microfiche that they had back in the mid 2000's.This is my other set of Simplicity. Those purple and white cards are priceless.

If you haven't found the info you are looking for, PM me - I can't remember if I have any Tecumseh cards or not. Tim

id="quote">How big of a mower blade are you turning? If you're running anything BUT a WB mower, 3600 plus or minus RPM gets the job done. Walk behind mower speed is controlled by blade tip length, 19,000 FPM. For instance a 24 in measured diagonally mower uses up 6.55 ft per rev. Divide 6.55 into 19000 and you get 2900 rpm. A 3.5 HP engine won't hack it at that rpm so you need to go to a larger HP to deliver the desired HP at the slower RPM.

I also have a couple of readers and a collection of fiche - Simplicity, Kohler, Pontiac, Oliver, etc. The Holy Grail for me is a printer or scanner to convert to PDF (I have quite a few). Had a couple of Canon boat anchors that never worked right and a lot of $$ to fix.

Do you mean like this? It is fully functional. I have a second, smaller non-AC one that I have on my desk to use. The AC one is packed away - just too big for my desk at this time. I can't remember what year mine is. Seemed like when I took it apart to clean it up there was a date inside. I may also have seen a sales bulletin announcing the sale of this style too. Seemed like mid 1970's? It came from a long gone Allis dealer in town that was called Fremont Farm Equipment. I have had it for many years.

Thanks also Dan. I found most of the Peerless stuff I have been looking for at Bob's reference. Parts Tree did not have the missing stuff. What I haven't found much yet is the 1100 Right Angle Drives.

This site has the 1100 Series stuff:

I was unable to find 321082C. Its not a valid number on PartsTree. I was able to locate LEV120-361082C and it's specs are:

High RPM = 3500

Low RPM = 2150

Both these values are + or - 150 RPM.

      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
