help identifying walk behind

Recommended Posts

jmurphy166
I am new to the forum but could use a little help identifying the model of my walk behind tractor. My Dad gave me the tractor that he had purchased several years ago but had no information on it. From what I can tell it is a Simplicity but I can't figure out the year or model. The Briggs motor has no model marking that I can find other than a M stamped on the block under the flywheel. Any help will be appreciated as I am try to get it running but need some motor parts. http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx330/jmurphy166/Tractor/Rside.jpg http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx330/jmurphy166/Tractor/Lside.jpg http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx330/jmurphy166/Tractor/Motorflywheeloff.jpg Thanks

to find the numbers take some steel wool and rub down the flywheel housing/cover. its there somewhere. should be on the flat surface that faces the gas tank when its installed on the motor. good luck!

Controls don't look like a Simplicity. Engine with plastic tank and white paint is newer than that tractor. Engine on tractor that old would be black or the same as tractor. Simplicity walk behinds had a tag on the frame rail and they are usually still there. Front of frame doesn't have quick mounts for attachments like Simplicity either. Dave.

Looks to be a 5HP engine 13CID, Model 130202. I have a parts list that will get you some basic parts . Send me a private message your E-mail address. You can get the points tuneup kit and carb gaskets for starts. You carb looks to be the one with a built in fuel pump and when the engine hasn't been for a while, the diaphram gasket dries up, gets hard and won't funtion, MS8994 is the parts bulletin I have. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=119445 Follow this thread for tune and carb repair info.

Thanks for everyone's help!! The motor is a model # 136252, 5HP. Looks to be a 1977 model so probably isn't original. Still having problems finding the make and model for the tractor. It as only a single forward and reverse. Any ideas?

It doesn't look like Simplicity, Bolens, David Bradley, Bready, or Garden Mark. There were literally hundreds of 2 wheel walker brands. Many of the lesser brands are regional, some starting out by disgruntled ex employees building units in garages, and working up to somewhat mass production.
