I just picked up a garden aid walk behind tractor,Any body know of one? or heard of one? Its a little one.It has a briggs and Stratton npr-6 engine.but not with the carbureted gas tank,a cyndrical gas tank sits on top of the engine.the tractor is orange like a simplicity,and the drive engages with a center wooden handle that moves the whole engine for drive tention, there is no reverse,i yanked the engine last night.and ripped it down to the points. its pretty clean,hope I can get it to spark.i'l post a picture when it gets light out.

Looking forward to some pictures of it.  The N series was a good engine. 

 

Points part number is 29667.  Condenser is a 29861.  I have yet to work on a Briggs that has sat for some time that I haven't had to replace the condenser.  I use an aftermarket condenser that beats Briggs' price, $9.

Dandy little tractors, sounds like you got a old one with the wooden handle.

The Briggs N is a good engine and supraben above should carry most of everything you might need.

Gap for the ponts with feeler gauge is .018, spark plug is .025. :ditto: with pics.

The Garden Aid was very similar to the Bready. They claim the only difference is whether it had the wood handle or steel handle for the engagement. I had one with a wood handle and I could have sworn it had a Bready decal when I brought it home 25+ yrs ago. When i dug it out I couldn't see a decal on it. I've never studied Garden Aid to see if maybe they bought them from Bready or what the connection was.
