Roy's B1

Recommended Posts

Roy, The mesurements of the B10 frame where the engine mounts is as follows; the frame is 13" between the sides, The engine bolts holes are 11" apart left to right and 6.5" front to back. If your B1 has that much room you should have no trouble putting a 10 or 12 hp Briggs on it. Tim

Thanks for the dimensions.

I have looked at older B-10's
and the only difference I see is the tractor frame is
slightly different around the engine oil drain pipe. My
parts book shows the B-1 & B-10 use the same replacement
frame. It looks to me like the newer B & S engines with
balance systems are wider front-to-back which may interfere
with the B-1 angle bracket to mount the grill & hood
assembly. So, I think you are right. I should be able
to bolt in an old style 10 or 12 C.I. B & S engine. The
problem is finding one.

Is there a newer model B & S that will bolt-in without
extensive modifications?

Roy, I know this is a little late but I just saw this note. The later B&S engines approx. 1974 and newer do not have the balance gears mounted on the front (internal balancers). This engine is shorter front to back (same mounts though).

      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
