I agree with gregc in that any large frame AC or Simplicity is worth keeping as long as it hasn't been totally trashed. (Even then I keep them for parts..) You are probably going to hear that the shuttle drive is less than ideal. I have one (712s) that has been in the family since it was new (Mid 70s) and it has never needed any adjustments nor given me any problems. It was used weekly to mow 3+ acres until I got it from my mom in '91. Since then it was used to mow 1.5 acres and I also used it one winter to plow a steep driveway. Rob

I've got just about the same tractor. Had it for over 20 years. Requires very little maintance. Just make sure to adjust the shuttle belts every couple of years. Book tells how to make the adjustments and its very simple. Takes about 20 minutes. I use my tractor for lawn mowing, lots of snowblowing and cultivating. Hope you enjoy your new tractor.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
