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.
