What a great story! Grew up on a Simplicity 515.I think my older brother had me cutting the grass with it by the time I was 7 or 8. Could barely reach the pedals but I loved every minute of it! My brother was 16 and glad to turn it over to me. We ended up with the same gold 5hp Briggs when the original black engine locked up. Pretty sure it was my brother's fault. He wasn't checking oil and I was too little to know to do it. At least that is still my story 40 years later! Anyway, hope you and your son are able to get back to it this spring and that you are doing well.
