Battery for 4041

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please give me the correct battery group # or physical dimensions for the setup on a 4041? Battery heat shield is missing on this unit, but want to make sure I get the correct sizing of the battery so that I can get a shield and have the whole thing fit correctly. Old battery is shot and is clear is the wrong size as it is unable to fit the holddowns--tried measuring but no exact fits at the battery store. Just got this unit and am sure will have some more questions as I restore it, but am too impatient for my "new" manuals to come from simplicity. Wife says that as this "beauty" (is in really rough shape) came into the family I will be soon disinheriting the old Landlord and all her goodies- the price of progress. Thanks in advance for any info.

I've talked to Jeff several times but was unaware of his cover design. Anyway, even with the original cover, my batteries overheat and dry out. I've resorted to buying the cheap generic garden tractor batteries for $17.99 on sale at Kmart and holding them in place with a bungie cord. I bought my last big battery at my CaseIH dealer for $92.00 and it only lasted two years.

Yes - Kudos to JeffG. He makes a battery cover that is just the berries for the 4041/9020 (or AC 620/720's). The battery cover is one of the first things to get lost but it is a much needed component since the heat from the muffler is so close to the battery. Steve

THANKS for the leads and suggestions- am anxious to see whether i got a pig in a poke as far as work goes-know I can get her going, just HOW much troubleshooting and replacement I'll need is all. Looks like the wiring has also been messed with a little. Will just get one and get it clamped down with a bungee strip.--then the fun beginns to find the open circut. Redappel, have used both the garden style battery and most recently went back to an auto battery--those are hard to find and will look tonight to find the group # on the battery to e-mail to you. (think it may be a group 52?) Got that battery on sale and paid only about $10 more than the garden style at that time. I did bungee the garden battery, but the auto battery is a little harder to fit-right now mine's in there without a hold down but i used the plastic cover on the terminals that were on the battery at the store to wedge between the battery and gas tank ledge and the unit is pretty tight and a bungee can fit around the battery to hold it snug to those spacers. Last, make sure you check the voltage reg. had my generator rebuilt $60 and time wise and tool wise to me worth every cent-- but have the original regulator and am still not comfortable with it If you do this make sure the SAME generator comes back--there is a difference in the mounting bodies.

      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
