stretching a B

i picked up 2 motors at the flywheeler show earlier this month. one is stamped with 243431 but it is a variant that won't work well in a B-10; the dipstick comes out in an odd place near the breather and other things i don't like. turns out it has no spark, either

   second motor i got to replace the model 19 in my B-1. it died at the show. new motor, with a condensor change and point filing, started on the first pull. so i yanked the dead motor, put it on the bench beside it's replacement, and drat, the new motor is 2 inches taller.

    like i'm sure many of you do, i have a pile of part tractors and just parts. all  B-1 or B-10 and it's variants (landlord, big ten, etc) all round hoods. lawn mowers don't count as tractors (murray and scotsman, both finally dead) nor do the 2 caes's cause they are still on the trailer

   so i got to thinking what to do with that good motor. i think it is a 23D simply because it is bigger than the 19, doesn't have the 12 horse counter shaft bulge, and has a square points box instead of the pointed one. obviously, there are no markings on the motor and where the plate should be riveted to the shroud are just holes.

    am i right in thinking that the square hood tractors are longer than the round hoods? and isn't the length acquired by using longer side plates? then i would need a longer drive shaft and brake rod and shift rod. anything i've missed?

    i need to finish some things before i can take on this project, but it's not too early to gather info and start collecting parts

Most of the "Square Hood" B's were longer, except the B-110. It has the same wheel base as a B-10 and it has the basic 3 speed transmission. The tractors with the variable speed or hydrostatic drive required the longer sideplates to give room for the extra drive related components.

You're thinking along the right lines.  The driveshaft isnt impacted, as it goes from engine to BGB, and that was forward of the side plates.  

 

Any pictures of the projects?

You shouldn't need a different drive shaft since the BGB doesn't move in relation to the engine since as Chris stated above, the additional length comes from longer side plates. 

I would think you'd need longer shift and brake rods.  They are plentiful and an ad in the classified should get them for you.

      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
