Serial number list to tell year

Recommended Posts

It will help to know what tractor were talking about. But if you know the the orginal engine is in it . You can get a real good idea of the year by going off them.

Hope this helps ya out somewhat.

Welcome to the club!

As far as I know, you can't date a Simplicity/AC tractor through the serial number. If it has the original engine, the date code on the engine will get you within a few months.

Tom,

Welcome to the club!

If you are not looking for info on a specific tractor, but want general info, then click on the Simple trACtor pull down menu above and then click on Cross Ref Table.

The most accurate way to get the MY of a garden tractor, providing it has not been repowered, is to look at the first two numbers of the engine code.

I recently picked up an old Roticul from 1962.

I have been thinking about the problem with Simplicity / AC serial numbers for a long time now. I have been thinking about compiling a list of of serial numbers of machines with original engines. It will be very time consuming, and take tractor information from as many members as possible.

I think the information I would need would be a lot like the club's registry including:

Model Number

MFG Number

Serial Number

Original Engine Model Number

Original Engine Serial Number

Original Engine Manufacture Date

Owner Name

I think it would be helpful to have a list where someone with a tractor without an engine or has been re-powered get a better idea of when it was built. Maybe this list could be posted in the Resource area.

I want to get some feedback on this before making any attempt.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
