Simplicity 3415s

I have recently acquired an old simplicity 3415s lawn tractor from A friend of mine (he knows I like to fix things). I want to know how to check if the engine is safe to run. It has no rust buildup on the engine block if that helps. Also, I can't find the engines' oil pan release so if anyone knows that would be great.

Hello thedancingman43,


Can you give us a engine model number ?

IIRC they used Briggs/Kohler and Wiscosin engines....

Well thedancingman43,


In my quest to find out which Briggs engine you have (no numbers posted) I stumbled across a PDF Owner's/Parts Manual which may come in handy.

As for the oil drain, It's on the end of the pan. It could be a regular square head pipe plug or a flush square drive plug, Simplicity also could have installed a street 'L' with a pipe plug dropping it right inside the frame rail.




How long has this machine been sitting around without running ?

I don't know how long the engine has been sitting around for, but my best guess would be more than ten years. However, I do know that the cylander is free and moving and is attached to the transmission.
