Where to start

Recommended Posts

I have just pulled a b 110 out of my Dad barn . It has been sitting there for 15 years or so without being used. The engine had been taken out of it so it has been sort of a mess to figure out . I have the engine running and it sounds really good. I was able to drive it for the first time and everything was going fine untill I heard gears making noise .I blocked it up and put it in gear to see if I could figure out where the noise was comming from . I am not sure if the problem is in the BGB or the transmission.

I need to determine if I should keep working on it or if it is a lost cause. The seat pan is rusting through,the steering is extremely sloppy , it is leaking around the axle seals and under the transmission and all of the tires are shot. It does have the cultivator , the disc and a bottom plow. 

What I really would like to have is a unit with a loader ,hydro , and power steering but I don't even know what to keep an eye out for or what to do with this one .

This is a lot of information but any suggestions would be appreciated. I really like these old machines.

I can totally understand the emotional connection since it belonged to your dad. So if you really want to keep this one I would say keep an eye out for similar models and buy them as cheaply as you can and rob the parts you need to rebuild your dads tractor. Just be patient they are out there.

Watch for Simplicity tractors that share the same parts.  Not sure how common tractors are around you, but it's hard to put a price on sentimental value.  If it were me I would keep digging into the problem.  There are a lot of knowledgable people on here I imagine will chime in too.  

When do you hear the grinding noise?  All the time? Only when the trans is in gear? When the PTO is engaged?

you could remove all of the belts from the gear box so the engine is only running the gear box and see if you still have the noise when it is running. if the noise is still there then it is in the gear box. if no noise then i would say it is in the transmission.

Thanks for the welcome. I will start looking for parts since I know I am missing some parts . The noise is present only when the transmission is in gear . I will remove all of the belts and see how it acts .

Thanks for the ideas

      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
