Got me a REAL tractor

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a simplicity similar to my fathers for a few years, figured if I found the same tractor I would be able to use his attachments:) I didn't find the simplicity but did find a great deal on an AC B-10. I found it on a service call (I do plumbing and heating to pay the bills) sitting in the driveway with one tarp over the tractor and another tarp over the attachments. It didn't look recently used so I figured I would ask if it ran and Bingo!! the guy tells me "sure it runs good, do you wanna buy it?", (turn on poker face) I reply, well lets take a look at it. We go out and jump start it, runs but keeps cutting out, figured it was a fuel problem. So I pull the tarp back covering the attachments (at this point have to reattach poker face and push eyeballs back into my head) here sits mower deck, snowblower, tiller, snow plow, cultivator, disc harrow, bottom plow and all look in good shape. At this point had to ask how much he wanted for it all, he tells me, (turn around cough a few times, reattach poker face again, lift tongue back into mouth, wipe drool off side of my mouth)turns out he wants less than I spend on fuel for my work truck for the month, ended up making a deal and took the price off my bill to him, so ended up with a check in my pocket and a tractor on the truck when I left. Blower and tiller are Simplicity, am sure the blower will work but am unsure of the tiller. Will post pics soon, see if any of you can lead me in the right direction to get the tiller working. Wife was a litte upset with me, second tractor I bought in a month, but hey, the only differance between men and boys is the price of their toys right?:D

Welcome to the club/forum. You can find all kinds of help on here. The good deals (really really good deals) come few and far between but do seem to happen in spurts. My wife asks me "what have you bought this time", "why do you need another tractor", and "where do you plan on putting it" just about everytime I come home or go to look at something. Congratulations on the great find. If you were really looking for it, it would have been a bear to ever run across that setup.

Knock off the bill?? Did I say that?? (rip, rip, burn, burn, oooh nice fire, should not have done this in the house)hehe. Lets just say I have spent more at the grocery store. After surfing this site for 4 hrs I have come to the conclusion that I am missing the parts for the rear pto. I will dig through the pile again but am sure they are not there. I will have to look at my fathers tractor next time I get down there to get an idea what all I am missing. Bummer, no deal is perfect.

I wonder if this is the auction you are referring to? If so these parts are there, the part that seems to be missing is a pully and an engagment handle that mounts on the rear of the tractor just to the left of the lift bar.

Little update guys. Ripped the gas tank off and cleaned it with the stones and shaking method, cleaned it so well that I could see light through the bottom of the tank. So after a quick coat of epoxy and a coat of primer slapped it back in the tractor, added a new filter, shutoff valve, sparkplug and choke cable and gave her a spin. Needless to say she started right up and purred like a kitten. Dam these tractors are great.

      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
