WAS working my 2012 over the weekend when the engine just stop running try to restart it but the motor would not turn over, battery was up took the belt loose on the S/G it had lock up.I pulled it off the tractor and took it apart to find that the front bearing had came apart. when to NAPA today and bought 2, check on brushes while there they did not have them but could get them.price on brushes was $10.39.price on 2 bearings $7.45. would have though that the brushes would be cheaper that the bearings.

caution: I'm pretty sure the brushes are special and unique for a S/G vs a generator. I think there's something in tech tips that covers this. UPDATE: I couldn't find it, but this is stolen from Al Eden's excellent website: "The brushes in these units have some copper added to them to reduce the resistance and handle the starting currents. Regular generator brushes out of a car or tractor generator won’t work. The starter won’t have the torque and they will be very short lived. " This is from : http://edensltd.com/starter-generator.htm , part of an excellent series on electrical systems. -Don

      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
