Nova Module II

Recommended Posts


I installed one on my 7116 today.  It is an easy set up, it is turning over now, but not starting.  Any ideas?  Fuel is on, spark plug was hooked up. Should I try to reverse the + and -?

Was wrong before the addition of the module?

If the magneto isn't any good, the module won't work.  

And usually reversing the +/- isn't a good idea if it was hooked up correctly.  The Simplicity/Briggs is a negative ground system and should be hooked up as per directions:

I put on new carb and started right up but ran rough, no matter if I adjusted either of the needle valves. I took the points cap off and the nut was loose, and assumed it was the points, so I thought that I would switch over.  Thats how mine is attached.

If you see my post about the nova11 ignition, I have put two in both my landlords. My first tractor, I adjusted the spark plug gap to .020" after installing nova 11, (it ran rought like your talking about)and has run perfect in the last 9yrs. When I put in second tractor, I did not need to do anything after installation-ran perfect.

      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
