I have Spark

Recommended Posts

I want to thank every one for all of the tech support you provided. I did get the answer from the posts that were made. When I had spark rotating the engine backward and posting that, I got the response about the cam being wore. I know that the cam was not wore but it started me thinking about the placement of the mag on the bracket. I felt that I had put it in the same spot but decided to take the flywheel back off and adjust. When I took the flywheel off the key way was sheared so i replaced it and adjusted the mag to the opposite side and low and behold shocked myself. (In more ways than one. LOL) As always thanks. I am glad to get a better understanding about anything machinical. Bob

Way to go Robert. Just one thing, did you correctly time the Magneto on the mount? There are timing marks on the flywheel and the mag. mount. You may have fire but you won't have the proper power if the ignition isn't timed properly.

      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
