Picked up this 7016 and hoping to make it my mower for spring/fall cuttings, aeratings and clean ups.  Its a non-runner so its a clean slate.  Got 3 months until the grass grows to work on it. If you have one of these please offer some tips!

Nice score! Alice was originally built like that (other than the headlights).

 Your tractor is the same as what was given to me this last fall. Explained in my post started as "Hello".   Your machine sorta answers a ? about mine. My tractor has a 16HP Briggs. It has a gear starter motor but..... the flywheel outside the air box has the large pulley for the starter/generator belt???   Possibly a transition period of starter/generator's being phased out and gear starters coming In ??? Does yours have the 48" deck?   I'll add what I did to get my none runner, running if you wish or wait to see how you progress with yours. I also am planning on mine being my primary  mower this coming summer.  Good Luck, nice acquisition!!

Thanks!  

 

Sounds like yours was right in the transition period and they were just using up remaining starter/generator parts (?)

 

Ive got the 48" deck and it needs new blades and bearings in the center spindle.  Did you replace any? what kind of job am I in for?

Its 65 degrees today so took advantage of that and power washed it

drained the old gas

and changed the hydro belt - it needed it bad!

also removed the fuel tank to clean in the cavity and make room so I can install a new ignition switch that's on the way

Nice machine, good solid tractor & easy to work on.

Mine has been under "restoration" for some time now so I have no helpful hints!

O M, my tractor came with 4 extra blades. It's been a problem to get this engine running, but I did once and had opportunity to drive it around and engage the mower deck and ALL appears fine, I like the machine so far.  The gas, yeh, that wont get you to far. Guessing plastic top of gas cap splintered or broken, left out in rain, no cover, rain water in. That's what happen to the DA in the "hello" thread.  

 

I want to add this. My starting problem, very,very weak spark to no spark. It could never jump the .030 plug gap. I reduced gap to .018 and got the engine to fire up. My plug wire is all dry checked and open so I'm assuming the coil is original from 1986. Two other times I got it to start, just running there at fast idle and it shut off like the key was turned off. Crank over and test for spark, no spark. I have received, ordered, new coil for it, sitting on the bench. It will be a number of weeks before I can change the coil. By the B&S code on engine I should have the Magnetron or no points ignition. Researching new coil a bit of a nusience, hoping I have the correct one. Good Luck with your's   Cap

Thanks. The previous owner said it had no spark so I am in the same boat. Going to start by disconnecting all electrical connections and cleaning and lubing.  Ordered a new battery, plug, key switch, points and condenser too. The key switch is original (45 yrs old!) and the tabs are very corroded so might as well start over new. 

 

Noticed this broken tab during power washing and it would definitely cause the problem too...

Replaced the center spindle bearings today.  The top one was just about disintegrated!

Probably wouldn't hurt to change that tensioner pulley while you're at it!  :thumbs:

Agreed. It looks terrible but it does spin ok. Adding it to the growing list of things to do!

It would just be a bummer for that to fail after you put it all back together!
