Limited Slip Differentials...............

Recommended Posts

Question------- Would the AC 712 machine have the same "rear differential" characteristics as say a Cub Cadet 122 0r 124?? AC advertised the special control-trac rear differential features. Just curious.......

Les, Your question is very vague. From my experience Cub Cadets have open differentials, not limited slip. The AC 712 (I have an AC712S and an AC716H) has a limited slip unit. You will not notice any difference from an open diff in normal usage, but will have more traction in slippery conditions. These are not a really tight limited slip and will still spin one wheel in some instances. I also have a 61 Wards with a late model diff that I have shimmed to increase the friction force in the diff to make it more of a posi-traction type diff.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
