knockoff coils

Recommended Posts

My 23FB needs a new coil (flywheel--not car/battery type)--If you're not familiar with them the coil is hollow and a metal core slips through it and that is clipped onto the armature. A Briggs NOS coil for it runs between $80 and $110 from what I've found, though there are knockoffs for as little as $25 or so. Are these coils, or knockoff coils in general if no one is familiar with the F models, as reliable, mostly/usually reliable, or junk, or somewhere in between? Thanks in advance.

Thanks...let me know how it works out! The one I need is for my Economy, and I only want to get it running for now. I want to restore my landlord first, as that one already runs...sometimes, and there is just more to the economy in the way of auto-style clutches, driveshaft, bull gears, etc. So, I know I'll be dumping a truckload of money into the thing when the time comes. Trying to count the pennies on that one.

      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
