7012 wiring help

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I just aquired a 7012 Landlord from my grandfather that did not have an engine. It is in really good shape, but has had a couple different engines over the years. I have bolted in a cast iron briggs 16hp, but need some wiring help. The original wiring is mostly intact, but I need to know what each of the wires coming out of the ignition switch are. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Nate, I believe your tractor originally had a Kohler engine in it and had battery ignition. If it has the original ignition switch in it you will either need to use battery ignition with the Briggs engine or change the ignition switch to one for use with a magneto. There are two wiring diagrams in the manual linked below. The one on page 34 is for battery ignition as I believe yours originally was. The wiring diagram on page 35 is for magneto ignition. http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_100_3045_02_SV_S.pdf

The difference in the two switches are ignition ground to run with a Kohler engines as it requires a battery source to fire up coil and with the Briggs it is ground to stop as that is a magneto source and has to be shorted to stop. Al Eden sells a conversion kit to use Kohler switch with Briggs engine and vice versa.

      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
