738 Serial Numbers

Recommended Posts

My 738 Broadmoor has a silver/black sticker on the sheet metal near the seat back that looks to read 898 12300. Is this the serial number? The mower deck is tagged 894 C12623. Any way to tell the exact year? There's a recess in the steering wheel hub. Did it originally come with a cover insert? Just bought this old gal and interested in info on the 738's. Any peculiarities I should expect? Thanks for the help.

Hi - I have a whole bunch of Broadmoors - two 738s (like yours), a recently renovated 728, and a recently acquired 707 (or thereabouts). It's a great tractor. With respect to yours, the number you described ('898 12300') is the last three digits of Manufacturing ID ('898') and serial number ('12300'). The whole Manufacturing ID is '990898'. Use this number when referencing your machine (ordering parts, etc). The model year of your tractor is 1973/74. The recess in the steering wheel is where a Simplicity logo insert goes. Good luck with your tractor. Regards, Tom Kelly

      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
