I have a question then,

In my AC manual it shows only the grease cap, i wonder if this a page from the 725 manual, could you conferm ?

How long and what models did AC use the plastic cups ?

If you mean if my page is from a Simplicity 725 manual no it isn't. The book covers the B-1 and the 100 series so I guess that they used the plastic dust covers on all of them but I've personally only ever seen them on early B-10 at the newest. If anyone else has a tractor newer than the early B-10 and has these please let us know.

I meant mines,

I think mines is the mixed manual showing both tractors or is wrong all together.

Can not find a manual just for the B-1 anyweres on the net to conferm mines wrong and you sending me a page from a AC manual states mines has to be wrong,..so i just ordered a reprinted one from flebay with another one for the tractor and attachments.

Yeah those manuals can get complicated sometimes. Is yours loose or stapled together?

I have never seen a Big Ten with the plastic caps. All the AC's I have had '65 and later had steel caps.

My '66 Big Ten was bought new by my grandfather and it came with the plastic hub caps. They're still on it.

Greg...nice to see you back :wave:

 

Curious what the date is on that Briggs?  The one I redid came from the original owner's son with steel caps, and I've had a couple others through here with steel caps as well.  Come to think of it, the only machine I have had with plastic caps is my B-1 (I've never had an early B-10).  I bet lots of them were replaced over the years with either type, however. 

 

Did they ever use them on the other brands?  (SImplicity/Wards)  I've only seen them in yellow.

I do see a picture in the Big Ten literature with the plastic caps.  Interesting.  I know the literature usually used very early machines and had some discrepancies vs production...I'll bet they transitioned away from plastic in or around '65.
