627 Yeoman Engine

Recommended Posts

Yeoman627
Hi - My advice would be to try and find used a used 17 cubic inch engine. Not familiar with the 'classified' resources you have out there, you can also try some local lawn mower repair shops, recycling centers, etc. for a used engine. I've also seen them on 'ebay' from time to time. Depending on how adventurous you are, and what the other 'problems' you described are, you can try honing the cylinder and replace the piston rings with an 'oversized' set. If your are not familiar, comfortable, or prefer not to deal with the above, you can always get a new short block or complete engine for not much money (ie: $200-$300), but probably more than the tractor is worth. Good luck !!! Tom K.

I just got a quote on a complete motor and a short block from http://www.perr.com/ for a 17cu.in. motor for a 717 Broadmoor.The shortblock was 275.00 and complete motor was 405.00 mowerman1193

Sounds a little high. Was that 'complete' motor you referenced electric start with generator ? Another source for B&S engines is Northern Tool (www.northerntool.com). For about $400 (retail) you should be able to get a complete 8HP (19 cubic inch) with electric start. From time to time, Briggs & Stratton dealers offer new engines at reduced (clearance) prices.

I have a neat little 627 Yeoman that I bought last fall for my son. It has a 6 1/2 HP Briggs on the unit and it had no compression. I pulled the head off and the cylinder wall is scored and has some problems. My question to all of you is can I find a used motor that runs good for this. Or should I buy a shortblock and go that route. Or should I have the motor rebuilt? Any suggestions would be greatly apprectiated. Thanks, GR-Made

      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
