Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Can anyone tell me what the plug and wire is in the bottom of this carb bowl?

Recommended Posts


did the new carb have a different plug in it?  the engine will run with out the solenoid. it is only used to prevent backfires on shutdown by closing off the main jet  as stated above. if you put a normal plug in in place of the solenoid it will work just fine.

That plug has a function...engine won't run without it

Nah, runs just fine without it. The only thing you need to do is idle the tractor down for 30 seconds or so before turning the key off or else you get a big boom! Mines been disconnected for 5 or 6 years now and tractor runs just fine.

Came to find out that the original carburetor number has been "superseded" twice and the original is no longer available ......I think it is reasonable that if it has been superseded that it would still be a direct match up with other new features not effecting the replacement.....  kind of disappointing because I had actually gotten all the numbers off the engine  and  got the carb number directly  from B&S.and was not told of any superseding or possible differences.....just seems to me that for what a Simplicity costs, that the parts should be still available .....the tractor is 20 years old, but I had a JD with a Kohler that was a lot older and was able to get the parts I needed without any problem...sincere thanks for the help and information    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
