Cab Help


Recommended Posts

After a long time I am finally working on a cab for next winter.  I have a simplicity cab that we last had mounted on the AC 716.  The front mount to the dash broke on both "arms".  I am going to get that welded up, but I am afraid I am missing support down to the running boards.

Is there a parts diagram available to identify if I have all the right parts?  The one in the download section does not quite match as the rear supports of this bolt to back corners of the tractor instead of behind the seat

The canvas is all in fair to good shape, I am planning to install on my 7117 and thinking the hydro lift will make the cab easier  than the armstrong lift on the 716..

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

While I don’t have a cab for a Simplicity tractor I have found the company Original Tractor cab to be very easy to work with.  I purchased a cab for my Bx2380 tractor with the third valve kit installed. The cab as purchased would not fit the tractor, but the company was able to assist me in what modification I would need to make so the cab would fit.  

There are users on this site that have contacted the Original Tractor cab company for an old simplicity cab. Instead of not helping the company has responded quickly with the answers needed. 

Give them a try!
