Repower a 3415S

Recommended Posts

philipfels
I have this 3415S and the old engine is still working good but it does use a bit of oil. I'm undecided on either a rebuild or move up to something else. What other engines will fit . I was told that the 15hp Briggs single is obsolete and parts can't be had. Maybe go to a 16hp. Also, what is the proper off white to use on the hood, and the right orange on the frame and deck.

A 15 and 16 HP Briggs are the same 32 CID design. Parts are not bad to procure yet. I have excellent luck re-ringing older CI engines with chrome ring sets, while pricy there is less work in the rebuilding procees if bore is very near standard dimension and only glazed with no scratches.

Thanks Bob,This may be a project this winter. I'll keep this old one to use with the tiller and might buy a new Regent to mow with. Looked at one today for $2699,44",22hp. Is this a fair price?

I've been thinking on the Broadmore too. As for matching the paint, it was painted over in the past and not sure if I can get down to the right color. Right now it's a cream and orange and it's flaking off and primer under it. I have a JD I need to sell first. I told a friend who likes the green that maybe "Nothing runs like a Deere", but NOTHING MOWS like a Simplicity. That would be good in an add!!!

I was thinking a broadmoor of the same size cut was $1000-$1500 higher.The broadmoor is built a bit stronger,has the better vangaurd motor(verses an intek)theres some other differences also,just can't think what they are off the top of my head.I would think if your just using it for mowing the regent would be a good tractor.

It would be strictly mowing. I have the old Soverign,3415S to do my tilling. I put another set of tine on the tiller to give me almost 48" and the beast does fine. It does like the oil almost as much as gas, but may get it rebuilt this winter.

      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
