Just Got a Big 10 and have a few questions

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone, I just got a big 10 today from a friend.  It is in good shape and I am going to fix up for the kids to do some pulling with.  It is not running at the moment.  It turns over  The engine is 243431-0123-02  but the briggs site only lists 243431-0123-99. Is this the same engine?  In case I need to rebuild it.

If you download the manual, on the cover page, it will probably read: 243400 to 243499 and then list the type numbers included.

I have an electronic parts list from 2002 that covers your engine.  If you want a copy, PM me your email addie and I'll send it to you (too big for club mail).

Welcome to the club.

Hey guys the tractor turns over on the battery but has no spark.  Took the cover off the points. They are corroded.  


Is there a plunger that should move in and out?  Looks like one that opens the points. I lubed it.  Can it stick or does it only open so slightly I can't notice.

Should I note any timing or anything before I take them off.

      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
