1962 Simplicity W walk behind tractor...


New member
Hello, Looking for some help if possible... I have an old Simplicity Model W walk behind tractor... It's missing the carb (I removed it a few years ago to clean and now have lost it) and it has no spark... It has a Briggs & Straton engine... I am in need of a Carb and a set of ignition points or the complete ignition box... Any help would be much appreciated... I am located in NJ, I would even consider bringing it to someone local to repair it if anyone knows of someone.... Thank you..

Look up a guy named Gordon Robertson in Cold Spring, NY. He restores stuff like this. Not sure he knows about this particular model, but he is a genius with these things. Has done other walk behind tractors, boats, various antique machine, etc.
