Simplicity L-1 Walk Behind - need help
I just purchased a Simplicity L-1 walk behind tractor with cultivator, disc, wheel weights and sickle mower. I want to restore this and actually use it.
Bad news is the tires are shredded, the engine is not complete and is locked and I think part of the clutch assembly is missing. OTOH the chassis & implements appear in great shape.
Questions. I've searched for a repair/service manual. No luck. I need something that shows the linkages/controls/clutch mechanism. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Will look for a good used/new motor. Looks like I can mout a 3 - 4 hp motor to the chassis, and they may be easier to find. How much bigger motor can I safely use? I don't want to damage the gear reduction system as I'm sure parts are not available.
The serial number is 75233 if that helps.
Thanks in advance,
