728 transmission...will it fit?

Recommended Posts

Jayman
Hello everyone and thanks for the compliments on my tractor pictures. I found a classified ad on this site and a transmission for a 728 is for sale. My question is...will it fit my 707? Does anyone know? If it will, I'm the buyer, if it will not, I will keep looking. Thanks again everyone!! Jay

Not 100 % sure, but I believe all those cases are the same. The older ones are a two speed and the newer ones are a 3 speed with a stub shaft to run a rear attachment off of. Other than that I believe they bolt up the same.

I agree with Sam,I belive they will work as Kserver (Kris) put one of them in his 717 that he restored.He acually has his listed on Ebay right now.Very nice machine he has.I would have a hard time letting that one go. mowerman1193

Yes Ok Mowerman, I hear ya...:( And yes I am having a hard time letting this one go. It is like one of the kids. BUT in order to make room for another you just have to let the kids fly. If it doesn't sell at the Reserve I'll just have to build a bigger shed. The Landlord should be FUN ;) Jay, That rearend will fit, the only thing I had to do on the 3 speed was to make one wider notch under the lower transmission bolt. If you need any help let me know. Bout forgot one little detail..You will have to modify the shifter pattern cutout on the seat pan.

Hey Kris,You know you can put more of those Broadmoors in the shed than you can Landlords :D I had to say that. I know what you mean though I need to clear out some of my tractors as well and the first one to go will be that old Massey Ferguson :( that is almost done.The reason I say that is its to nice to use so all it does is take up space, LOL. It will probably be on Ebay before spring so I can start my next restoration ;)

Thanks for the advice, I bought the tranny. I am still going to try and rebuild the original one, but at least I won't be without a working tractor while I try and get the tranny working. Hey, another speed, now that's a plus I never figured on!

Jay, I found not that I had a faster speed BUT the 1st gear is actually almost a granny gear, slower than the 1st gear that is on the 2 speed. But real good for snowblowing. Good Luck, it's actually almost a identical swap.

Tranny came in today, installed already, it was big fun! After a day in the office, rotting in my cubicle, a cement garage floor and lots of rear end fluid is just what the doctor ordered! I did have to grind a small bit of left side tranny mount for a perfect fit, but not a big deal. I took a test ride about 11pm, wife and neighbors think I'm crazy. Just happy to be back in the saddle!

You guys actually have sheds large enough to hold all of your tractors? I've got to tell Mama that I want one of those huge sheds for Christmas. My tractors have to be stored outside, because the garage is full of tools, parts, and other equipment.

Hey Rod, I've got a good sized garage, three cars for most folks but 2 cars and lots of tractors and toys for me. I have to pack 'em in just right when I'm done playing to get the door closed. I tell my friends that I could really use another stall added on and they think I'm kidding...it's no joke! Recently bought a beater Craftsman for a hundred bucks, it's a 1986 model 10 hp and it doesn't come close to cutting as well as the 1964 707. The only reason I bought it was for the double bagger, sure helps out with the leaves, other than that I think it's useless. Jay

Question I have a 728 Broadmoor, it had a original engine which is in very good condition, however I replaced it with a new 12.5 brigs. I can not seem to find a belt that will actually stop when the clutch is pushed. I can not get it in gear while it is turning the original belt was to tight. I Put a 86 inch in but failed to realize you have to twist it to change direction. I will do tomorror. Meanwhile I have adjusted the clutch still it turns when pressing the clutch in? Help
