Safety switch?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 3415 hydro here and was wondering if there is some way I might be able to temporarly disable the safety switches to determine if that is why my machine will not crank with the key switch. I am having this problem becasue there is a safety switch for the front power take off when there is no lever for the front pto thus I think this is causing it not to crank, thank you for your help in advance,-BradW

Brad, While you know that it will not be a good long-term solution, you should be able to easily jumper out those safety switches. I believe that most of the safety interlocks on the earlier Simplicities work on a make connection when the lever is in the proper position. That means that you should be able to pull the plug off the switch and put a jumper in place to "make" the connection. This should do it. If I am wrong, somebody please step in here... Good luck, Clayton

If the tractor is not equipped with a front PTO, there should be a factory installed jumper in that interlock clip for you to see what we are talking about. Look under the tractor , right side (from seated position) somewher near the hole in the frame on that side, you will see a blue? and a purple wire and a black connector with a short wire jumping across the two contacts.

      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
