Over the years, we have seen several posts and opinions about the rarest attachment.I think this might Qualify.I know the answer,;) never seen or heard of it before, can any one else identify it ??Too bad I only have the paper, not the actual part.

That is the very rare 3/8" bolt carrier. It was made to carry up to 8 of the little buggers, but only came with the starter kit (items 4 and 5)

It just goes to show you that everything Simplicity made was heavy duty.

I think there was a bar/wheel with it also.http://www.simpletractors.com/images/9020_cat/towing_hitch.jpg

id="quote">I think the bar would have been an attachment for the plane, since it would have to attach at 2 points to turn the wheel, and may be wider or narrower on different planes, and also possibly longer or shorter too depending on the plane.

That makes sense. I have seen ones at the air shows and they seemed to be more universal, but I never looked that close.

      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!😁
