By the time you've had your engine out of the tractor 12 times YOU'LL be able to do it in under an hour too. I need a lift tho: after Armstronging engine plus starter onto the bench I'm ready for an hour in the comfy chair with a couple of cool beverages. -

Hi Duckman, I am thinking the same thing. I need to pull the engine out of the 7016 also. I can use tackle to pull it from an over head point but then you need to move it. I need something with wheels under it that will lift and transport the engine to the bench and back.

The non back breaking way I do it is to lift it with about a 6 ft bar (fence post, actually, rope to exhaust and S/G bracket) and two people. I can manage a 16HP w/ S/G and muffler by myself but it is a real strain. Other guys here clearly have a better way. What do you pros do? What's the NASCAR pit stop way to remove and replace an engine? -D

That's it, I don't get comfy in the comfy chair and drink a couple cool ones before I work. I do have a beer tapper :drl with a half barrel (what can I say I'm in Wisconsin) but I don't drink before or while I'm working on machinery. But afterwards is a different story.:J If you concentrate on what you are going to be doing and plan ahead, have your tools ready, parts ready and have read up on what you are going to be doing it shouldn't be a problem. Oh and yes I have one of those for both hands.OO

Hi Elon, Don't ask that question. SmilinSam is the official club philosopher and you will awaken the sleeping giant**! **(Please note, this is officially not a personal attack, I like Sam very much!)

Hi Guys: This discussion about lifting engines has a cheep, easy solution. I went to Harbor Freight and picked up an electric winch for about $80.00 on sale. Capacity is 440# on a single line and 880# with cable doubled. Since my garage has only a 7' ceiling I made a box out of 2x10 and mounted it above the bottom stringer after bracing the trusses. I have room to pull an engine, roll the tractor out of the way and set it down on the Black&Decker Workmate and go to work. The other great advantage to this contraption is that I work on a lot of mowers that I don't want to remove decks from to sharpen blades or do underdeck repairs. Nothing like putting a strap on the front axle and standing it right on its tail!! Turns out to be the single greatest labor saving device I've bought in a long time. Think about it. Regards, Dave

      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
