i don't think anyone is ignoring you, but rather your having the same problem i have with my A/C 615. The forums are mostly about agricultural tractors, and backhoes are considered Industrial equipment. and add the fact they are quite rare and difficult to get parts for.

Thanks for the reply. Are parts hard to get because AC is out of business? Are parts available from another manufacturer or is nothing made anymore? This 816 is in excellent condition, but if something ever breaks I hope I dont end up with something I cant fix. I know I will need to fix the gas guage, I was told the float broke. Is your 615 similar to the 816? I know this site is mostly agricultural tractors, but I have found plenty of info on my case and JD backhoes, just nothing on the AC.

Dave this site list several service/parts etc.manuals for you machine...if you don't already have them. I found some discontinued parts (in original A/C package) by doing web searches with A/C part numbers, and got them at very reasonable prices. good look in all your ventures mac

Thanks Mac, that is a good idea. I am picking up the machine saturday, and it comes with the service and parts manuals. I will start looking up some parts when I get the books, thanks again. I will post a pic of the machine this weekend, it is in really nice shape.
Today's Featured Article - History of the Cockshutt Tractor - by Danny Bowes (Dsl). The son of a very successful Toronto and Brantford, Ontario merchant, and himself quite an entreprenuer, James G.
