707 NO Spark

Recommended Posts

I am getting really close to showing my 707. First I need it to start. Its getting gas and compression, but no spark. No spark no matter what I did. Could the engine not be grounded to the frame or electronics? Its set up the simple way with a wire from the On/Off switch to the engine. NO starter. Could the paint be keeping everything from connecting? Mark-

All dressed up and she won't go? Disconnect the wire from your on/off switch from the points for testing. (you'll have to kill it now by popping the plug wire off) if still no spark, verify points are opening and closing ok. Engine was running when removed? Where you into the engine (like heat shrouds off) ?

Remove the ignition system from the kill wire, as duckman said, then test again. If still no spark, and your points are operational and test good, you have a bad coil. If so, take the opportunity to go solid state, but that is JMHO- Hope you get it figured out- Andy

      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
