Simplicity 725

Recommended Posts

mmasters

I have acquired a 725 that is complete but has been sitting outside for some time. Everything seems to be free (engine, mower deck, trans, etc.). I need to replace the points and condenser and I'd like to add an external coil. I am having issues finding these items. I know the old coil was under the flywheel, I would like to replace it. I do not have a compression gauge but when I turn the motor over it does not seem to have compression (my finger blocking plug hole) as others. I wonder if just replacing it would be best, is there an engine that might bolt into place?

 

Thank you,

Take the head off and see if the valves are moving. I had one where a valve was stuck up and never dropped down to seal.
