simplicity 725 questions

Recommended Posts


Hi...I just got a 725, and have a few questions. First, the data tag behind the seat only has 5 numbers on it, 17294. I can't find any thing to go on with that short of a number. Anyone have any idea? From what I've seen and been told, it's an early build due to the short steering column, which is chrome, and a straight shifter. It has been repowered with a 23ab that I'm rebuilding. My next questions is about the front wheels. Does anyone know of another wheel that fits the spindles, as far as depth of the hub? The original wheels I have are toast. I guess that's all for now. Thanks

First, with a short column and straight shifter, it should be a 700, not 725.

Second, 17294 is probably serial number, not model. That should be a 990168 I think, or possibly 990169.

Pretty sure the later wheels with tapered bearings will fit that spindle, Like Landlord or B10 wheels.

I can't find a model number or any other numbers anywhere. When I got it the hood and grill were off the tractor, I assume due to the engine swap, which wasn't finished, so they could be from a later machine. At any rate, hood does have 725 emblems. Who knows. Came from a junkyard so no telling what the plan was with it. I'll post a pic or three when I read the faq on that.

Oh...it does have tapered bearings in the front wheels now, the kind with an integrated rubber dust shield. I have a set of wheels from a gravely on the front now, as rollers, and the hubs are longer than the original wheels so the locking collar won't go on far enough for the set screw to log down on the spindle.

      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!😁
