trying to identify a mower deck

Recommended Posts

Trying to identify this mower deck that came with my simplicity 7014 Baron. This deck is 43 inches wide without the discharge chute, it has three 14 1/2 blades on it. There are no tags on the deck anywhere.  it is all there, other than the missing spring for the idler pulley and the belt covers. 

I don't believe it to be the 1690271 deck that came with the baron 7014 do, to the bail being different. 

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated

thanks

After a lot of research I think this may be a 990885 mower deck. I found some pics of a 42 inch on "Michaels tractors" in which he restored a mower deck that appears to be the same as my deck.

Looks like the deck from a 3400 Series such as a 3410. A 42" would be 990784.  I believe the 990885 has different housing with the smaller discharge opening and later style stone guard.

I'm putting this on a 78 Baron 7014, do I use the PTO belt for the original  baron deck or use the pto belt listed for the 990784. I guessing it would be for the 990784.

With a 7000 series tractor and RBT 42" deck, you want to run a 73" belt.  The Simplicity part number list for the #990784 deck is #174687 (73.1" I believe).  Closest current Simplicity belt is part  #1719746 or #1726471, both 73.24". 

I've used a generic Kevlar 73" belt  (A71) with success with my7016H and 42" mfg#1690271 deck).  I've found the 74.1" belt (#176439 or #2176439) listed for the #1690271 42" deck to be too long.

Bill I put a A71 belt on the pto and it seems to be working out just fine. Mounted the mower deck on the tractor today. With just a few adjustments had it up and mowing with no issues. Still need to make a lot of repairs but heading in the right direction. 

Thank you for your advice and input

Tom

      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
