Now you need to find a flip trailer to go with it. Good Luck, Rick

I have an AC flip trailer and there are 2 others between my house and the transfer station. One isn't moving so, I hope to stop in there one of these days. They come up on CL a couple of times a year. Several months ago there was a blue one for $75, about an hour from me. http://gardentractor...lip-cart-in-ct/  I had no way to carry it. Good Luck, Rick

I don't think I have ever seen a bronze cart...they were offered in the M/W catalog, but I have never seen one turn up.  The homie one referenced was the only Homelite branded one I have seen, if original.  Either one would be an incredible find!

Mr Green, guys,

With the hood bolts figured out i want to move to the lights, you mentioned that the early Allis had a single light bolted to the hood on the left side, below are pic's of my Squire with a hole on the left side that was duck tapped off, i would assume that is the original light hole ? Do any of your Squires have this hole?

Edit : I gess i am still a little slow, seen you showed photo of the B-1 light mount, i must assume the hole was drilled for another reason.

 

Would you know of a place that sells the early light bar for the Squires ?

I have a 1962 Garden Mark Squire 9, and am missing drive shaft parts that couple to the shifter.

 

In the manual the parts are "Coupling Assembly" #154194 and Drive Shaft Flange #154198. Anyone have any suggestions for where I can try to find these parts, or the same model that someone is parting out? Attached File  tractor parts.pdf   595.34KB   28 downloads

Welcome to GTT. You may want to contact our sponsors directly. Those should be popular parts, common to ACs and Simplicities. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the fourm, glad you joined, love those little tractors, tough little things built to last the years.

 

I updated the Squire 9 to the fiberglass type, Sandy Lakes Imp. will take care of you, here is the link to there page : http://www.google.co....65636070,d.aWc

 

If any help is needed on the diveshaft change please ask, it is a bit of a PIA, raining for the next few days so i should be around.

 

The Simplicity OEM rubber coupling is no longer offered the last i checked, the OEM ones sold on Ebay and such are already 50 to 40 pluse years old and if you plan on working the tractor i would use the fiberglass replacement as i did, peace of mind, do it once and be done with it :thumbs:

 

The first of the Garden mark Squires by Monkey Wards was a red re-badged Simplicity 700/725 tractor from 1961 to 1963 with just the plastic screw on ''Garden Mark Squire'' on the back side of the hood, if yours is truly a Squire 9 like mines then it would be a 1964 with the decal Squire 9 in the middle of the side of the hood, the bronze painted re-badged Simplicity tractor was only offered for one year, 1964 to 1965 before changing to Gilson so these tractors are a bit rare and and the last of this style of large frame Simplicity tractors, IMO should be treasured and rebuilt to original as close as possible if mostly original.

 

The model no. serial and date code is on the Briggs engine ID tag riveted to the tin plate covering the cylinder barrel of the engine on the right side of the tractor is the only way to approximate dating the month the tractor was assembled at the Simplicity plant.

 

Pictures of the tractor would be a huge help to us if you could upload some, we do like pictures anyways.

Many thanks, she and her sister Allis who is only a few months older are my babies.

 

No pictures yet seeing as i have been scrambling to get things done here but Squire 9 has the 42 inch mow deck attached and has finished the first mow of the season this past Sunday, pictures will follow soon.
