Recommended Posts

sammiefish
I have an AC 310 The AC tiller that would fit is 1600346. Now, I am having trouble figuring out if a Simplicity tiller 990694 will fit the AC 310. I tried to cross ref the tractors but there is no cross for the 3 or 400 series tractors. any idea how or where I might find this information? anyone, anyone?? thanks

I am not 100% sure, however, I think that the 300-400 series attachments will not work on other A/C or simplicities. There were anti-trust laws or something of that nature in effect at the time. I think the attachment points are not on the same centers. I'm sure someone else with more knowledge will chime in. jh

ive uploaded a photo of the lift tube on the back of the tractor. (I cant figure out how to put it in my post yet) it may be 1 1/8" or 1" depending on the year (71 or 72) its not completely clear but from my research I have a 1 1/8". That isnt my big worry, I can machine something or get the right lift tube or a different lift bar. my concern is the ability of the clutch / pulley assembly lining up correctly (sideways distance so the drive pulley lines up with the pto pulley) and the various idler pulleys work for the clearances and distance. I can always get different size belts etc.








i got the pics in... Yeahhhh!!!!

BTW, This was my grandparents tractor on their farm .... Ive been riding this since I was 6. The original bill of sale from Burns Bros. in Bath, NY w/ a wagon was for over $1000 in 72 (and nevermind my brothers JD in the pic!!!)

The rear hitch assemblies are the same as the Simplicities and A/C's the differences are the mower decks and the front hitch's, as far as I know. The mower decks had a right hand discharge and they were driven off of the front of the engine via a clutch similar to the 3300 series.

Does 300 and 400 series have a cone clutch pto off the bevel gear box? do they use same pulley system as 7000 series? The tiller I have is 1 1/8" lift rod and its a white 36" with Allis stickers It has a clutch on top of the tiller, which would leave me to believe the tractor has an unclutched PTO for rear attachments.
