There are two active safety switches that if they do not have contact will not let the tractor turn over. The nuetral safety switch is under the seat just to the left of the oil resevoir, there is a pointer that pushes in a ball check to operate the switch, pointer must be dead center on the ball,there is adjustment to help put the hydro lever in nuetral. The second one is in front of the PTO lever, so that if the pto is engaged it won't let engine turn over. There is sometimes a third switch in front of the driveshaft that is usually jumpered that was for a front pto. Make up three short wires with terminal spade connectors and jumper each switch till you get it to turn over.

Probably rust on the shaft inside the tranny preventing the lever from sliding the gear to disengage the hydro. The only way that I know of is to split the case and clean up the shaft. I know, from learning the hard way, that forcing the lever is unlikely to disengage the hydro. If you have a floor jack, you can jack up the rear end to move it around the garage etc.

      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
