B-10 Motor repair

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone canhelp me here? Was mowing the lawn earlier this summer and the ring on the bottom of the piston arm broke away from the crankshaft. Took the motor to a repair shop near here and they qouated me between $230 adn $270 to fix. Is this about right to fix this and can a person with out much experience fix this easily enough by them selves? I feel the unit has enough life left in it to warrent the amount for the repair but the g/f doesn't. Any ideas?

I think that's actually a reasonable price to have fixed. Kind of hard to say if an novice could fix it. If you are up to the challenge I recommend a book on small engine repair to get you started.

If you are talking about the CONNECTING ROD you have to make sure the crankshaft is still good!!!!Scars ,chips,mares etc will greatly limit the new rods life.Be careful!Most ros go bad for 2 reasons.....lack of oil or bad governor operation and the engine over-reved.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
