700 #'s

Recommended Posts

I'd be interested in seeing pics of your Porter Cable. My best friend from childhood had one in his family for years, and swore by it. Unfortunately, vandals drove it up the powerline behind his house (now...that says somthing right there, come to think of it!) and it had an even quicker trip to the bottom, such that it came to a violent end. But if you can't post pics, I'd still like to know the power, engine, trans type, etc.... My friend will be interested. Thanks, Peter

Is there any way to trace the #'s from the motor to find out what year this 700 was built? Also on my b-12 it has the sticker for the hi-lo option. Can I still buy this or will I have to find used?

The link below has the manufacturing dates for Model 19 and 23D Briggs engines by serial number. But, using this to date the tractor assumes two things: 1) This is the engine that originally came in the tractor and it has never been replaced... 2) The tractor was built and the engine installed in it by Simplicity in a reasonable (??) time, perhaps 2 - 6 months later....[A href='http://www.edgeta.org/mdate3.htm']http://www.edgeta.org/mdate3.htm[/a]

Thanks that will be a big help. Especially when I go to finish my Porter Cable its either a 60' or 61'. It is a fun little machine to have.

Jim, I would be interested in seeing pictures of that PorterCable also. I had one that I never got running (was severely beat when I acquired it). It had rear fenders, an automotive type exhaust (piped under the rear fenders), and a belt type speed/direction control setup. The engine was a vertical tecumseh (I think). Later, Clayton

      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.

      Try this web site for the previous message I reported that did not work for you guys. 
      The message is about a man in Arkansas who builds miniature vehicles out of old refrigerators that are drivable.
