Just Purchased an AC 712H

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone!

Last night I purchased a 712H.

The tractor appears to be in great shape but is not running. The original engine was replaced with a Briggs 12.5HP. The drive shaft was replaced with one that has a u-joint and a slip joint. The u-joint is broken.

Also the previos owner says the ignition switch is bad. Maybe tonight I'll be able to take a look and see if its the switch or something else.

So the next couple weeks I might need advice and parts and who knows what else. I'm excited though, its a really cool old tractor.

      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!😁
