Restored A-C 410

Recommended Posts

Thanks Matt. This is a 410S that I just finished restoring for a good friend of mine. It was a complete tear down and rebuild. Did not get to take some photos during the process, but glad this one is finished. Now got to start on my 720, HB112, and 314H of my own.

Are those 23-8.5-12' on the rear. and what size tri ribs did you use on the front. That looks very nice. Any secret tips on the rebuild, as I have a 314 I hope to do over the summer.

Thanks for the compliments. Moose, you can use the 23 X 10.5 X 12 on the rear if you have the rims for it. I prefer the 8.50 myself. I saw that Rod Hubbard prefers "the wider the better" on the poll question in Talking Tractors. :D You can also get new hood latches from Sandy Lake, real reasonable. Look great. Josh, the rear tires are 23 X 8.50 X 12, what the owner had on it when I picked it up. I put the tri-ribs on for him, 4.80 X 4.00 X 8. Really make the tractor steer almost like it has power steering. Spent a lot of time replacing all the bushings in the front axle and spindles and added grease zerks. Wet sanded the paint, buffed with fine compound, finished off by buffing with a paint polish. Gave the paint a lot of depth and shine. Paul, I certainly can understand why you may be tired, but I think I will stick with restoring only my own. I have a 314H, HB112, and a 720 just waiting for me to get the shop cleaned and re-organized so I can start on them.

Looks like it is new. Very nice. Excellent job..dOd. Guess he can't use it now...:D The 720 to restore...is it the one that was on the trailer at Matt's place last year? Take care Tom, Andy

Yep Andy, that's the one. I have to pull the engine out to repair/replace the starter. Figured while I got that much disassembled, I would do a clean up, check worn bushings/bearings, and repaint with new decals, at least. Unit is in pretty decent original shape. I also had the HB 112 and the 314H at Matt's too, first year I think. Both solid tractors, need clean up and repaint.

      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
