Hi FRED how are you now? No your brain is not fading "BUT"-The message you read somehow was posted on the wrong page. If you don't beleive me this time, just look at the time it was posted. Now go to page #4 and look at the message I posted about the single cylinder verse's twin cylinder engines. It was supposed to be posted just under the first message I left just for you. I was just laying in wait to see how long it would take someone to notice what you did. Somehow I just knew you, if anyone could catch this mistake. As it was posted on the 17th of this month. But now are you slipping as it took you 2 whole days to find it out. Just kidding but its the truth so help me god. I just hope that Yahoo has not followed us here so soon. Your very good friend happyjack.

I read the first post and decided to keep my distance. Engineering questions with so many variables make me nervous! So now I read the whole thread and all I'll say is go ask a guy with a Bolens HT-23 or JD 400 how much torque the old Kohler 'big iron' twins (like a K-582) made and how long they last (if kept clean - they tended to get slimy, then hot). They made enough grunt to put an Onan on the trailer in shame. So there's one more variable for the soup. And then there's the older stuff that had Wisconsins in them. While they never got up into the 14-and-up horsepower range for use in a garden tractor (it just wasn't fashionable back in the '50s), they really WILL run forever. I recently saw an old Ditch Witch, not all that different from a big GT, with an 'AHH' on it. A WI single 'bout the size of a fire plug, with enough torque to twist you out of your shoes. Another variable. Whee! This is fun! Or at the other end of the scale, how about a Kubota 'G' series (GT, not a 'Compact') with those cute little torquey, run-forever Diesels? Or my late father's little Honda HT-3813 LAWN tractor with its 12-1/2 horse overhead-cam water-cooled inline twin? Runs like a champ, and smooth and quiet to boot. There's an engine for everything, buddy; no way will you get me to talk about it. OOPS!
Best regards from engines-are-us,

      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

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct
