I think I was upgraded today. Here is the 3012 my bro-inlaw was going to sell for scrap. It sat in a shed about 30 years. I got a nice mower deck, center blade and a rear weight from him also. The front axle rotated about 4", all the bolts were worn out. I put in all new bolts with shoulders, it made a big improvement in the steering slop.

This is the AC b112 that I got about the same time, the engine runs good, it didn't have a grill, I got a grill from Steve Johnson in Salem.

I bought this 7112 about a month ago, I removed a near new Walbro carb and put a Carter on it, runs good now. A friend gave me the tiller several years ago. I thought it might work on the 3012.

Today I took some pictures of the Big Ten that I picked up about 5 months ago. It was advertised on Craigslist with another tractor as: 2 Cub Cadet parts tractors $150. I could tell by the front axle that one was Simplicity made. I was glad that it was a AC big ten. It had a scored crank and a broken rod. The engine that is sitting in it is a 15hp from a Monkey Ward parts tractor, .030 piston. I have the steering wheel, I don't have any of the other missing parts.

The HiLo on the Big Ten was worth more than his asking price...nice grab! Looks like she has the grill off a later model, flathood AC. I'm sure you could beg or barter around here to get what you need.

Thanks for the reply; The B112 was missing just the grill. I bought the front grill/hood support from Steve Johnson in Salem Or. It is off of a B110. I don,t think Steve has any parts tractors left, he said he had to haul off 50 thousand pounds of parts tractors to satisfy the county. Steve said he still has 360+ tractors as of 6 months ago. Here is a couple of pictures from Steves.

      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!😁
