    It's like putting a Chevy into a Mopar :) I assumed the engine on the Simplicity lawn tractor I was given just needed a tune up. I was shocked to find out what was wrong.... I realized it was time for a new engine. But I didn't want another Briggs & Stratton. But what else would work? I needed...

    Hi- I have a Broadmoor 1692420 16 HP Briggs with a hydro transmission. Brought it into the garage to fiddle with the deck and had to move it by hand - Moved the transaxle release lever as normal, moved the tractor, finished my work, pushed the release lever back, started it up - no movement. I...

    I have a Simplicity Prestige with a Kohler CV20 engine. The engine will not turn off. I have replaced the ignition switch. I replaced the wires from the coils to a switch so I could bypass the key and ground the coils via the switch. If I throw the switch one cylinder stops firing I have...

    Hi all, I have a 2003 Conquest that I bought new and have been using the 2 stage blower for snow removal. Over the last couple years I’ve been having occasional issues with forward and reverse not wanting to engage when the blower’s sub-frame hitch is installed – no issues at all when no...

    Hi, We inherited a 1962(3) Simplicity 725 Garden tractor. It hasn't been run in about 8 years (when my fiancee's father past away). He took great care of it and used it til the day he died. Since we finally have a house we are able to store it and use it. When we first moved it to our place...

    Hello, we have a Simplicity 7116 Lawn mower and snow blower. We love it but I think the engine is shot. There is an auction coming up listing a Simplicity 6216. Would any of the parts from that tractor be compatible with my 7116? Thanks for any help or suggestions. CE

    My usually reliable Simplicity Legacy won't run. This happened suddenly after a hard day of tree work. The engine turns over, but will not start. It will start briefly with starter fluid in the carb, but stops immediately. Seems to be starving from no fuel. Obviously has gas in tank. This...

    Hello All - I joined a while back and never introduced myself. I live in central Maine on just over 1 acre, and we have 4 raised bed garden plots. The main reason for my tractors is my firewood. We burn about 6 cord per year, and the bulkhead to the basement is on the back of the house. From...
