What did I break?

Recommended Posts


So this just happened. Take a look at the pics. What on earth did I break? Can't go forward or reverse, can't put it into gear and have tractor stay in place.  The piece that broke has a grease zerk.

No.  You need an OEM part.  It is machined for the keys and snap ring. It is case hardened to run on needle bearings.  It will have new bushings in it.  What are they running now - $200?  You will need to remove and tear down the transaxle. You should replace the axle tube bearings and will need the axle seals.  It is not unheard of for a broken axle tube to break a trans case when it fails.  Diff shims from a truck rear end can be used to set up the axles on these to minimize the slop most have.  Good luck with your new project.  Tim

Looking for a used transaxle may likely be your best bet. If a Vickers hydro, it may be a challenge but patience finding good donor tractor may be a good option. Dan Lonnen aka Rokon2813 is a used parts reseller and good resource as are other members here. I'd suggest placing a wtb ad in classified on this site. Good luck. gw

      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
