Hey all. I reinstalled my 8 hp Briggs in my 728 two weeks ago and I could not get it to even turn over. I've checked the connections to everything 20 million times and they are all correct. At first I thought it was the battery but when I tried to jump it it still would not turn over. There is a new spark plug, new oil, and there is compression. But it just doesn't move. Now I am still a "beginner" on engines and electrical so I very well could be missing something very obvious. ANY idea on what to do is greatly appreciated.

Please don't take this wrong but I'm hoping your connections need a 20,000,001st check. All may be tight but it could be something is not back in the right place. First to make sure we are sharing the definitions, when you say it won't turn over you mean the starter won't move the engine at all, yes? No noises even? If so, tap a jumper cable from the positive battery terminal to the big lug on the starter. Does it attempt to turn over now? If not, you've either got a bad starter or (more likely) a bad ground connection. So let's try a different experiment. This time move the jumper cable to connect the negative battery terminal to the engine block. (it should be already anyway, but something isn't right) now try to start it with the key. If it does turn over when you tap the positive jumper to the starter then you've got a wiring fault between the positive side, the starter switch and solenoid. We can figure that out later. happy hunting! -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 
      Paul
