Briggs & Stratton Clean Up

Recommended Posts

Oven cleaner works well,I buy it at the dollar store,or if you want to spend more money Gunk, Simple Green,Purple Power or other good degreasers. Don't get them on your tractor paint,they will discolor it. I use black high temp engine enamel for the motor, your local parts house should have it.

I've used the Duplicolor 500 degree "ceramic" black on the block, etc, and the 1000 degree silver on the exhaust pipe and muffler with success. About 7 hours on 5 outings so far and all look great.

I have tried hi-temp paint on heads before with mixed results. My favorite paint for heads and the rest of the engine now, is Dollar General's cheap paint, about a buck a can. Several coats work fine on any part of the engine, as far as I can tell. I have used the 16 HP Briggs for many hours, most of it several tanks of gas at a time, and the paint is just as good as when I put it on early last year. As for cleaning, I use Purple Power or Greased Lightning, both work just fine.

      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
