AC 312 BGB is here!

Recommended Posts

I had a lot of problems finding the "right" parts for my BGB. To re-cap, the machine was given to me in trade for a trolling motor (HA!) and the BGB was bad. But sine it runs like a top and came with the mower deck, front plow, tiller, snowblower, moldboard plow, cultivators, and a disc I figured it was worth fixing. (Did I mention the trolling motor was broken? I repeat, HA!) Sometime in the past a neanderthal had "repaired" the BGB by WELDING the driven gear to it'd shaft. Naturally this mechanical genius ruined the bearing and the driven gear shaft. Not only that, but someone else had replaced the original BGB with one from a much newer and larger machine, according to Brenda at Samdy Lake. After going through several repetitions of the "order it, mail it back" routine I finally sent the BGB and all my new and used parts to Brenda. Turn around could have been a bit quicker, but I understand it their busy season. Anyways, now I have all the right parts and am actually going to be smart enough to save the invoice with the part numbers! 47 freakin' years old and I'm finally catching on. The old girl may be moving this weekend. That only took 14 months, thats pretty good for me!

Had to put the kids to bed. I wanted to add that prior to tearing it apart the charging system wasn't working. With the electric lift it's kind of needed. Where do I start looking on that? Also, the thing was in parts when I got it. I have the Simplicity 3410 Landlord manual, but can't find the AC312 manual anywhere. Are they pretty much the same as far as putting it back together?

      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
