If I had no bad luck.....

Recommended Posts

Trying to rototil my new garden with my new 3416 (16 hp single Briggs) but it has so much blow by that its fouling the plug in a couple of minutes. Maybe 40 wt and some oil treatment would help temporarily. Anyway I took the tiller off and put it on the AC 712H (12 hp Kohler). Tilled like a champ but when I pulled it into the shed it was hemorrhaging oil. Not sure where it's coming from but maybe the seal between the sump and block? I know one thing for sure, I like the Hydro better than the shuttle.

Check to see if the fuel pump came loose on the block before getting too excited about your Kohler. As for the 16 Briggs. Pull the piston and check for broken rings. I've seen several 16's that had broken rings and if alowed to run on they will score the cylinder badly or break the piston.

Before pulling the engine apart, check the crankcase breather. If the diaphram is broken, rusted, or just fell off, the engine will suck in oil from the crankcase, especially under heavy loads. If this is OK, then do as Dave said.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
