Simplicity Silverline-Whatzit?

Recommended Posts

Greg, that Sovereign (assuming somebody's not even further off-base) might just be a 'buy'. But make sure that it's rebuildable as there are no short-blocks for that Briggs. And look over the 'variable' as well as you can without running, because parts are a little difficult and expensive.

Greg, From my experiance when a cast iron Briggs throws a rod it doesn't damage the block, but you will probably need a new crank shaft. Also the rod may damage the internal governer parts and may have nicked the camshaft. I don't know the availability of these parts. Tim

Greg I would guess that this is a typo or cannot read (illegible) the name on the tractor. Should be "Soveriegn". Everything else sounds like a Soveriegn. A guess by MS.

Mike,
Good point. I needed to use a bit more imagination.
I may just go look at this one.

Fred and Tim,

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't too sure how rebuildable that engine might be. I figured it would be a good excuse to at least get inside the engine, but I wouldn't have been surprised if it needed a new one. If replacing the engine would be a problem, because of fitment, then I guess it wouldn't be a good idea. Besides, not being able to spin the blades and check out the xmission is chancey too. I think I'll wait for something that runs.

      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
