System 3008 Broadmoor problem

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just bought a 1975 System 3008 Broadmoor. I am having a problem shifting it. The gearbox drive pully does not stop when I push down on the clutch/brake pedal. Is there an adjustment for this? I have looked everything over and haven't figured out a thing. If I slow the motor down to an idle I can jamb (grind) the shifter into gear. I know this can't be good for it. Other than this problem, and a missing parking brake assembly, this mower is in excellent shape! It has been a dealer display for the last two years. He closed shop and sold everything at auction. I got it for the outrageous price of 80.00! I mowed with it for the first time today. Does a great job!

Hi and Welcome to the club Greg, Try adjusting the belt stops. There should be 1/16 to 1/8 inch between the belt stop and the belt when the belt is tight (clutch engaged). If you need an operators manual you can download one from Simplicity. http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_100_3343_00_BM_S.pdf Hope this helps, Greg

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
