Wow - 20 years is quite a while! How long IS your grass? The float sits level. By throttle control do you refer to the small locknut stops for top (3600 RPM) and low speed? You might want to try epoxy on your wheel but I have no actual experience.

Got a fire built in the Big Ten after it sat for probably more than 20 years. Still needing the parts I posted in the classified.

Also need to know how to adjust the float, and measurements on throttle control rods. I have the one that cable hooks to, the rest is missing. (assuming it is the same as on the smaller Sim 700 that I've been using as a guide to assemble this one) And if steering wheels are hard to come by, how to repair one with half of the bakelite/plastic missing.

Thanks, Bruce H

Jeff: I go out mow the lawn a little at a time with my chain saw, trying to get it where the mower can handle it. ;o)

The control rod with the two stop nuts is the only one I have. I had planned on trying to make the others? As mentioned before, I'm using (a friends) complete Simplicity 700 as a guide to assemble my AC, assuming the throttle/govenor set up is the same. The block on the 700 is smaller though, so I thought the rods may be of different lengths. But perhaps the AC is supposed to be rigged differently too. I will see about ordering a book this weekend. Until I get one, I'm in the dark with a tractor missing a bunch of parts.
