I thought something felt a little off when i was plowing yesterday, sounded like the bevel gear box was groaning under the load of pushing with a chatter.

Chucked the drive shaft off the flywheel when backing up, rattled the bolts loose, lost one of the spacers which i used washers to replace for the time being.

Inspected the bevel gear box and no bearing slop for the main drive pulley but noted the drive shaft coupling was a little loose, the rubber coupling was starting to separate from the disks and dig into the spacers.

A call to Sandy Lake Imp. and two of the fiberglass flex coupling conversion kits are on their way here.

 

Wonderfull service, the lady knew exactly what i needed and the part numbers.

 

I am compelled to ask for any of the Simplicity Landlord owners who has replaces the couplings, what is the best/easiest way into the tractor without having to completely remove the dash.

What does the shop manual say? It is in our Manuals Section. I thought that the seat and shifter cover came off for doing at the BGB. Good Luck, Rick

It took a while but I found it hidden as an AC: http://gardentractor...service-manual/

 

Good Luck, Rick

Yes, the seat/rear panel hinges out of the way but the coupling is right in front of the shifter plate, took off the side panel and can see the front of the coupling, in a very tight spot.

Below the dashboard there is a plate that extends to the main frame, it looks like if i remove that plate i should be able to access the coupling with wenches and rachets/sockets.

Wanted to ask you guys first before tearing into it.

I have the original Squire 9 manual.

Thanks for finding the manual.

The round hood tractors are much easier to access than the flathoods...on the latter, the dash assembly and shifter plate are one piece. On the roundhoods, you can loose the dash and slightly lift, then slide that shifter plate up and out, providing access to the coupler.

Thanks,

Figured that being the best approach, you confermed.

Parts finally came in, picked it all up and started tearing into it, new coil with built in resister is on and carb re-tuned, the drive shaft is now off. Temp is dropping right now.

BGB main needle bearing # 154258 is sloppy (i figured) ordered that and seal # 154263, should be a few days.

Yes, i laughed while pulling it out.

Still a bunch in there, after i split the tractor will blow out with the air gun around the engine too and check the steering gears also, buried in 50 year old cuttings :D

 

Before i forget again, inner housing bearing 118011 superseded to  2118011 was ordered also.

Never seen so much crap in one tractor in my life.

Hello Trowel, have you made any progress on your repair?

Missed you yesterday, should of put everything onto one thread : http://gardentractor...earings-change/

 

Moderators, could you integrate the BGB thread into this one ? I am starting too many threads on one tractor.

Will continue here.

BGB is out, gears are out, little chipping on the edges of the teeth but the mesh is good with some wear on the input gear, bearing are out, you can see why it had some slop. vacumed the frame out and cleaned the tranny a little more.

Wish it was warmer so i could degrease and pressure wash everything.
