Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Simplicity 1694655 parts interchange

Recommended Posts


Hello to all.

My first post in this club. I bought a home this past October, and a Simplicity riding mower was included. I also have the manuals. 

It was purchased new in March 2005  It is mfg #1694655 with deck mfg #1694688.  The entire headlight assembly is missing. Just a big

gaping hole there now. I looked up the headlight part number as 1714353sm  but everywhere I look, it has long been discontinued, and 

no longer available. Short of buying an entire tractor just to get a headlight, there must be some way to find one. I don't know how many years this 

Mfg# was produced.  But maybe somebody here may know if some different part number might work with some modification.

I just don't know enough about Simplicity to know where to look. Can anyone help me to understand if a replacement headlight is possible?

A Google search yielded a used housing for $7.99:


The lens is part #1714785SM and I bet that's NLA also.

Best is to check mower/tractor salvage yards in addition to eBay, Craigslist, etc.

You can also place a classified ad here, but most folks here are into the larger tractors.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
