Maxtorman1234's AC410

Recommended Posts

clyde
Just picked up Graham's (Maxtorman1234) AC410 to store for him for awhile. I think he got a pretty good deal - motor runs and sounds real good and I drove it on and off the truck without a problem. I don't think the headlight is original 'tho:

Deck is going to need a little work, but has been used recently:

Even got a couple of manuals:

Thanks for storing it, Glad to hear it runs good, but i think that deck will need some work too. Other than that, it looks like it's in pretty good shape, looks like a pretty good deal, How's that transmission work?

Neat little tractor, I like the style of that one too. Glad you could pick it up for him. Clyde, Do you want to bring it down to cut my lawn? I won't be able to use mine until I pick it up next weeekend. Just kidding Graham!

Transmission seemed fine, for what little I drove it. I did try all four gears it shifted fine and the shuttle worked OK. Didn't really try it under load or anything, but didn't notice anything unusual! :)

Good idea Nick - I think it's our duty to make sure Graham's tractor is OK. :D

Nice looking deal there Graham. Man that light looks like you could see for a mile. Old b1/725 mounting spot. Charlie has two 410 tractors a S and an M. The 410m is what lead me to find the site and club last year.

Just picked up the 410S, I like it. The shuttle actually works, and it runs and drives good. Got a tiller that needs tines and bearings for 25$, and a new set of Firestone ags for the 410:) [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/maxtorman1234/dscf0072.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/maxtorman1234/dscf0068.jpg[/img] Thanks again Clyde for storing the tractor and bringing it to the show, I really appreciate it!

;)Graham, To see the conclusion to this saga is a tribute to this great club. I thought at the beginning you were in over your head, due to the distance thing. But with your hard work and the help of fellow members it turned into a success story. I think all involved deserve a round of beers, to say the least. Oh yea, and that is a very fine looking tractor!! :D(even if Rokon thinks they are ugly):D

Glad to see that tractor made it to Canada.I was wondering if Graham made it to the show.I hadn't seen a post from him since last weekend and didn't know if he had made it. Looks good with those ag's.And I have always had good luck with my shuttles. I agree with Joe,There are some very fine members in this club!Its been a pleasure to meet as many as I have and hope to meet many more yet! Mack

I didn't get to meet him, but wanted to. Sorry I missed you, Graham. Didn't know you had been there at GOTO till Clyde told me later. Graham, if you want headlights on that 410 just remove the front plate - holes are behind it. Buy some 4011 bulbs and make some clips to hold them in. Use the holes that are already there. I sold jkmustang a set that I removed from an old Wards riding mower (not a Simplicity).

MPH, I got them from one of the tire guys at the GOTO in NY. We paid $100 for them. THey sure are nice tires. I'm now driving through the creek where I'd get stuck before:). THey're great tires. They'll go through just about anything.

MPH, The tires probably came from Miller tire. I think I have one of their catalogs at home. Can get you the address if you want. I bought two 3.50x6 tri-ribs from another place at the show. When I found the Miller booth, I asked the price. They were $5 per tire cheaper than I had paid.

Nope, the tires weren't from Miller tire. When we looked there, they were sold out. Also, the tires we wanted were more expensive there about 60 each for the Carsliles we were originally looking at, and only 55 at the other tire place. The place we got the tires from was at the other end.

Interesting Graham, I bought the tri-ribs from the place at the other end for $25 each, but Miller had them priced at $20 each. Guess the deal depended on the specific tire and not just the seller.

Were those the 23X10.5 or the 23X8.5 tires? We were told they were 60$ for the 10.5" tires.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
