Mercy Purchase - Follow up to "Oh the Horror..."

Recommended Posts


I did it. I couldn't stand to sit by and idly watch as one of our Simplicity's was forced to live as a Deere. So I bought her...call it a mercy purchase. Plus it was only 225 bucks and I was looking for some Ag tires. The guy bought it when he lived in the mid-west 20+ years ago and only realized it wasn't a Deere when he posted it on C-list. He said he wondered why he had a hard time finding JD parts that fit on it. Really nice guy - he used it a lot and it still runs strong, but he's moving south. We had a great conversation.Here's the catch. I can't find any markings, even on the engine (although I might not be looking in the right place). The paint is really well done, although there are a few spots where the true colors are coming through. She looks just like my 3410, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions????

Engine model number is on the engine shroud below the carb. Mine has been repainted too and can be hard to see. The narrow front tires would normally dictate landlord, 10hp, but those are also easily changed.

It has the narrow front wheels and 3 speed transmission like a 3410 but it has a 14 hp engine (can tell by the humped cylinder head and PTO side counterbalancers). An awesome deal with a mechanical front PTO, OEM wheel weights, and a rear lift kit. Nice!

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
