I have been looking for a b10 or b12. I was at the house today and my friend pulled in and said he got something for me . He had a simplicity 2012 land Lord. He was going to give it to me for free but I couldn t just take it, so I gave him the 100 he paid for it. It has the rear lift too. Runs and drives good. And minimal play in the gear box. My question is where do you guys get the parts for the bevel gear box if they ever need rebuilt. Also would it be a sin to make it a b12? If so what is a good match for the simplicity orange? How did I do? Sorry about the pics. Also what do you guys do with the chrome grille for a restore? And would this be like a 66?

That is really nice. Check out  www.simpletractors.com  and  www.simpletractors.net  they have some info and sponsors who may be able to help. I believe the bearings are just off the shelf that you can get at an auto parts store. If the BGB is staring to worry you, rebuild it before there is damage.

 

IMO that GT is in too good of shape to repaint. Clean it, service it, and preserve it. Then, enjoy it. An AC will come along when you least expect it. For now enjoy what you have and accumulate attachments. BTW, he is not a good buddy, he is a great buddy. Good Luck, Rick

That is a 1967 and the stripe down the hood is supposed to be white. That is a good looking tractor. Did it come with the manual lift or was it originally hydro lift. My son has one that someone took the hydro off.

I'm not sure the lift is manual right now

From what I found only one of the two bevel gears is still available. It only has maybe a quarter inch of play when you turn the pulley idk if that is too much. I may take it apart and see if maybe the keys in the shafts are worn or something

I have seen instructions on how to repair a BGB. It may be a Zippo Varga video on youtube. Good Luck, Rick

I put new gears in the BGB on my 3410 last year. Here is a link for the gear box. Both gears are still available. I went to my dealer and ordered mine.

Is the bgb, the same ? When I look at the parts for a b12 or 2012 it shows only 1 available.

About the only difference in the BGBs is the output shaft. Starting with the 3400 series they have a cone clutch.

 

2154121SM           $116.75

2154139SM           $102.00

 

Part #s and price from Jacks Small Engines. And these will also be available at your local Simplicity dealer. Prices may vary.
