Thanks for the info. I will set mine that way. Another person who worked at Simplicity said "check on your shaft and find the indent from the original spot on the shaft and reset it there. I took a drill bit 1 size over 1/8" and held it between the transmission and the low speed pulley hub that drill bit spacing put me dead on with the original setting.I have mine spaced about an 1/8" from the transaxle case.
The general rule of thumb is to have the set screw in the center on the woodruff key. Mark the center of the key with a sharpie, then slide the pulley assembly on until you see the mark at the bottom of the set screw hole.
I did get an answer to this measurement. This person said check on the transmission shaft and see the indent on the shaft from the set screws. I found that spot and took a drill bit one size over 1/8" this put me dead on to where the original setting is located. Suppose to get about 4" of snow by tomorrow morning so may be a give the Simplicity a test. Thanks for help. DaleHey Dale, I'm not clear on the measurement you're asking for....maybe others aren't either. I'm sure someone here can help. The small frame tractors are outside my wheelhouse (not by choice, can't find one!), otherwise I'd lend a hand in a heartbeat!
I took the blade off and put the single stage thrower on. Have rules in town. Snow can't be pushed into the street or the curb area, so the thrower should do a better job if the low speed pulley unit works.Glad you got it sorted out! Time for a test run tomorrow? =]
I'm hearing 5-10" over here by the lake, so I'm thinking a half footcan be expected. Should be wet and heavy...a good test for the Broadmoor. Are you pushing or throwing?
I haven't really used to because of the low speed pulley issue.The single stages do a real nice job on the larger tractors, and from what I hear, the results are the same on the little ones too. Have you used it before, or is this your first run with the machine?
