my buddy got me setup with a guy that he works with. story is he moved into his great uncle's house. his uncle owned a simplicity dealer then closed up and continued working on small engine's at his house. the guy moved in after his uncle passed and there was all sorts of lawn garden stuff left at the house. bad thing is he tossed out about 25 push mowers, a 1960's simplicity broadmoor, tillers , grader blades, plows, blowers, decks.... ect. anything large he scrapped :(. he did keep one broadmoor 728 and some stuff that was stored in a trailer. he told me to come get it before it disappeared :O alot of NOS briggs parts but most is for push mower engine's . there is a few trays of small hardware and parts that would fit tractors. the trays are full of small engine hardware, standard nuts/bolts , roll pins , hair clips , and just misc hardware items. jumped the battery and the bradmoor fired up dOd has the older style electronic ignition installed in it. there is a few box's of the magnetron's in with the stuff. appears to mount to coil. im guessing the newer mega-fire ignition's replaced this style ?.

Those organizer tray/shelves are nice. You can never have too many of those in your garage, imo. Are those full cans of Bud I see behind the organizer trays? Cause you can never have too many of those in your garage, either.

Nice find Perry.dOddOd Me sees a rear hitch bracket.:D:D Are the Magnetron upgrade kits you speak of the type that wedge between the coil and a leg of the armature?? They're ok, you just have to make sure the flywheel on the engine is correctly polarized. I believe that there was a sheet in the box that had a fitment guide. Of course that's knowing for sure the coil itself is in good, working order.

The Mega Fire moduals are after market. The Magnetron kits are great and near bullet proof. The only draw back I know of is it takes 300+ rpm's to trigger the magnetron so you have to spin it up a little faster on a pull start. If you keep the points on a push mower or tiller or such it should start with only enough rpm to pass compresion stroke.

yesterday the broadmoor ignition shorted out and fried the coil. went ahead and replaced coil and installed s new magnetron out of the parts bin i got ;) . pretty simple to install

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
