Bunky, I was going to do the same thing last fall. I did a single word search for "shuttle" in the discussion and by the time I'd read all of the negative comments I changed my mind. Seems there are two sides. Those that love them and those that hate them. No one in the middle. The haters were louder than the lovers. You might want to read the comments for yourself and form your own opinion. Ron

I'm in the "love it" camp. I bought a fairly well used 712S in 97. Mowed 1 acre every week for 4 years and the shuutle was never an issue. Did replace all of the belts in 98 though, including the shuttle. Get a service manual and take the time to adjust it properly when you put on a new belt, and it will be fine. I use it at least 50 times every time I mow. A huge timesaver.

      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.
