Repowering

Recommended Posts

haykarenhardy
I can't seem to find an article which gave dimensions of engines used by simplicity, diameter,height, base mounting dimensions etc. I am looking for a repower engine for 7100 or 7000 series. A cast iron single would be my pick but some parts a hard to find for them. If I am correct a cast iron kohler from another brand of tractor may not bolt up because of different oil pans? As I understand an IC 18 hp Briggs is a good choice if you have a blower fan from a Briggs single to bolt the drive shaft to. If you need to overhaul the engine are parts available for them? What other engines would be a good choice? Repower Engineering offers kit but I am not ready for that just now. Stan

If your original engine was a single cylinder then you would have to cut out the sides of the frame to accomodate the cylinders. Your best bet is to find another engine out of a similar series of tractor, or possibly replace with new single cylinder engine.

Current singles that would drop right in is the Kohler Magnums, twins would be the Kohler Magnums and Command V-twins. The Kohler Command Pro OHV singles may fit (close but not the same as the other above engines). Any newer Briggs engines will need new/modified mounting pan to fit in the 900/7100 series tractors.

      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
