I bought a 3210 that had been setting for 7-10 years. It had a mouse nest all thought it. I just want to get it running and see if has any problems. I really don't want to put much money in it as I am just going to sell it when I'm done. I have the sheet metal off and was going to remove the flywheel and was wondering if it is left hand threads. The other thing is to attach a puller looks a little difficult. The other problem is that it doesn't seem to be getting spark. I will spin the fly wheel with the motor out and I get no spark. If I'm not mistaken without the rest of the wiring harness from the tractor I still should have spark. I was wondering the easiest way to ck the mag. I can put a electrical tester on it if I knew where and what to look for. Thanks

The technique I've used to pull the flywheel is to use a piece of bar stock against the end of the crank shaft that has 2 holes matching the 2 holes in the flywheel. Use some long bolts (or threaded rod) and slide them through the holes in the bar stock and pull the flywheel off against the end of the crank. Good luck-

Place a pry bar between the crankcase and flywheel and apply pressure to the flywheel. Place a block of hardwood on the end of the crankshaft or use a brass drift. Hit the block of wood or drift wwith a swift hard blow with a dead blow hammer while applying pressure with the bar. The flywheel should pop right off.

The threads on the crank, if I'm not mistaken, are regular threats. To get it off, the way Maynard said, is right out of the Briggs manual. A steering wheel puller works great too. You should have spark with the engine out of the tractor. All you need to have hooked up, is the wire going from the coil to the points. I would also check the wires, going into the point's cover, as well as the ones going through the fly wheel backer plate. If they are bare, they will ground out and give a no spark. Let us know what you find.

I got the nut off the flywheel but didn't have a good enough puller. I am getting one today. I opened up the points and cked them put back together and turned the engine and got spark. I think that all of the connection just need cleaned. I may bid on the mag on ebay for the b-112. Mine has bare wires that the mice have chewed off.

      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
