1978 A.C #716H service/maintenance manual

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first lawn tractor and need to find a copy of the maintenance/service manual so I can keep this baby hummin. Anyone have a copy? Also looking for attachments like snowthrower and tiller. Are they available new from Simplicity or am I better off buying used?

Paul, I think the 716H AC is the same as a Simplicity Sovereign and AC B series tractors. Attachments are available new or used. Here in eastern PA there is a good supply of used attachments. If you don't mind some tinkering and painting the used stuff is by far the best buy. A new tiller is about $1500.00 where a used one will run $75.00 - $500.00. Some used equipment will be missing drive parts and pulleys. Most of these parts can be purchased new and adding the price of the parts to what a used attachment costs still puts you way ahead of buying it new. I have found that Ace Hardware Stores have some steel pulleys like those used by AC. If your missing a pulley someone on the forum should be able to tell you the size pulley you need for anything on an AC tractor you need. As far as manuals go check Jensales, their listed under links.

      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
