Is it a 700 or 725 ???

Recommended Posts

DanBov
I'm in the early stages of a partial restoration . The hood emblems are 725's . The motor type is 706035 which matches for the 700 model . I've noticed that there is no choke control on the right side of the frame . Did they make 725's without this feature ? Maybe I have a 700 with a 725 hood ? What else should I look for ? Thanks , Dan

I believe that the 700 had a shorter steering column than the 725. Here is the 700 [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1959/model_700.htm[/url] .....and the 725 [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1963/model_725.htm[/url] Pat

Posting a pic would help, but here are some other things to look for. No pulley guard on the right side fender, straight shifter, two section seat(not pan seat)... There was a recent post on this when Rhabas got one fron a neighbor.

Dan, I'am also restoring a early Simplicity 725 which has short steering column & two section seat with choke control on tractor frame,has curved shifter. This tractor came with a 42" mower deck that is all bolted together. My tractor was made around 1962? I have about over half of the tractor painted now & engine is now painted today. Karl

Has a short steering shaft , two piece seat, no choke control , engine #'s match with 700 model . Looks to be a 700 . Karl , have you overhauled your motor ? I'm trying to find a parts diagram for the briggs model 19 engine so I can try to order parts if the're still available . Dan

Th steering cloumn on the 725 was indeed longer and it was spring loaded so you could lift up on the wheel to disengage the beveled gears and spin the wheel around backwards out of the way of the hood. Kind of a neat setup.

Dan, I have rebuilt my Briggs & Stratton engine. I bought rings and gasket set,oil seals from my local Briggs & Stratton dealer. I installed my engine in the tractor today. The steering cloumn on my 725 is short and it has spring just above the gear. Karl

The pan seat seems to have started in 1962, with the long shaft steering, belt guard, etc. There are four models of 725, the 232, 235, 269, and 270. I believe the first two are for two piece seat Model 725s from 1961 and the other two are pan seat models from 1962. This is just guess work on my part though..... Various pieces to the puzzle are in other posts. Do a search and you'll find a lot of info.

        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
