Substitute engine for Simp 4040

Recommended Posts

StanS
The Onan 16hp CCKA is too far gone. Time for another engine. If the front & rear faces have custom bolt patterns for Simplicity PTO pulleys am I sunk ?? Less expensive to buy new than attempt a rebuild of this mess. Except for explosives, any suggestions for a replacement engine for my 1974 Simp 4040 ??

With bated breath, etc .... StanSomers

Considering replacing the Onan CCKB in my 9020. If the CCKA is the same block we may have the same problem. I read here that someone is lengthening their frame to fit a new engine. Not this kid! Has anybody been down this road?

Am having to pay attention to details of the engine like I never had before. Engine front has electric clutch and rear drives the hydrolic drive. The upper and lower pullies are very close together so engine depth is very important. Front shaft has to be exact length, diameter, and tapped size for the clutch. Shaft at rear flush or less than flush to fan caseing with it's tap size and casings 2 taps the same, and bolt spacing just so. Wow! Last few days have been very educating. May have found match in 16hp Briggs twin.

Stan,

Depending on how much you want to spend the Onan CCKA and CCKB engine short blocks are still available they are pricey, but sometimes better than trying to adapt to an engine. If you would like prices on those particular parts e-mail me and I can let you know. Good Luck

Mark

      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
