i have never seen this setup before. the engine came off a david bradley walk behind. i am looking for the year?, bore, stroke , & crankpin specs. also with the coil off the engine is there a way to see if its good. i cant seem to get spark. the coil sitting on top is held on by clips. engine model # 500 202087 serial # 288208 [IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/perry71/davidbradley001.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/perry71/davidbradley007.jpg[/IMG]

The 500 is the sears number for Briggs & Stratton engine. Looking at the second picture of the coil....see the splits in the coil. The coil might be no good. Do you have a picture of the carb and cylinder head? Karl

That is an old style "Maga-Matic" ignition system. I had one on a model 23 engine last year. I think I still have the coil and I think it was good. The front bearing went out causing the magnet rotor to be eaten away but I think my coil was OK. I think this was the biggest difference between the 23 and the 23d engines was this type of ignition or the style we are used to on the 243431 series engines.

      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
