Couldn't pass it up. Got it in a trade with a friend. Traded an SS16 for it. It's a 630. Recoil. Runs but needs a carb kit and a little work to the ball lock as it comes out of gear easily. This is number eight for me. Never sold one, they just keep coming. I like the recoil tractors a lot. I have it's twin in a 633. Not much difference except for electric start on the 633. Here's a couple pics of it, Rick

Thanks ROJ! I needed another tractor like I need a hole in the head but there it was so I had to bring it home. Hope to clean the carb today and do whatever else it needs. And I forgot to mention too that in the trade I also got an old Briggs model 23. Looks in great condition. Don't know what I'm going to use it for but didn't they come on some older Simplicity's?

Wow, there is a nice survivor. Lots of potential there.
There is a situation I would be hard pressed on... SS16 for a 725... Might have to flip a coin.

As for the Ball Lock... There is another thread with a young gent describing what you just did...
Found it http://gardentractor...377799&hl=+gear

Any of you guys able to do a description of a Ball Lock Clutch?

You are right Rick Simplicity pretty much used only cast iron Briggs through the 60's.Starting with the model 19,7hp in the first riding tractors in 1959.

Well, I think you and James both got good deals, you are the DB master, he likes the SS models.

My son's 725 is really fun to drive. jsut wished I could get recoil to actually recoil properly.

Did the wife ever notice?
