Rear lift cable

Recommended Posts

Hi every one wish i had of came aboard earlier. Almost 2 years ago an neighbor stopped by and said he had just acquired an Allis-Chalmer and wanted to know if i would like to buy it. After looking at it i jumped at the price $200.00 It was an AC 916H 1690575 002224 with a Kohler engine. I did have to put rear tires on it and a fuel pump right away. Now i have several attachments for it. Have not got the Mower deck repaired yet. Going to make a few more attachments too. The problem i an having with it is The cable that operates the attachment lift in back. It broke several months after i got it right on top of the pully. Had to have another one made and now it has broke in the same place. What is wrong and how can i correct it? Where can i get the right cable for the tractor? Simplicity dealer here can not find one.

Larry, If the rockershaft on your tractor has the double ended attachment for the cable, you can connect the cable on the other side of the shaft to the other attachment hole. If you do this, then the pulley can be eliminated. Just put a bolt through the hole that held the pulley to hold up the cable when it has slack in it. This change will, however, reverse the up and down of the lift at the rear.

The cable that you need is part number 1657563SM and is still available. I bought one two months ago for about $34.00. If your dealer can`t find one I would try a different dealer. If it is breaking the cable in the same spot. I would remove the pulley and see if the spacer or bushing is seized to it or verify if the pulley is actually rotating when you are lifting it up and down.

Here's Jack's website.[url][/url]http://www.jackssmallengines.com/searchdb2.cfm Kust select lawn mower and tractor, then go to Simplicity, then put in your part number. Comes up as $29 and some cents for your part.

Checked with the simplicity dealer here today. They must thank we are made of gold. They wanted $46.00 and change. (They are located in one of the most expensive areas in the city.) I will order it from Jacks website that DanD gave me. Thanks every one Larry88

Hey! Welcome to the site, Larry. I think you will find it to your advantage to deal with some of the sponsors here on the site. I live in western Nebraska and have no local dealers. I use the sponsors here and have found them very very helpful as well as priced right. You will want to think about joining the club as well. It will be the best $10 you have spent in a long time. That $10 is for a full year!! not just a month at a time. Dan aka IronPony

      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
