Sovereign Seat Deck Reinforcement

Recommended Posts

JeffNemes
Over the years I have noticed the seat deck (pan) on Sovereign's crack at weld ends between the seat pan and the hinge. The following describes a procedure to fabricate a reinforcement to eliminate this problem. Take a 1-1/4" X 1-1/4" X 1/4" X 6" long angle iron, drill and tap it for 3/8 bolts. Clearance drill the 1-1/4 seat pan hinge crossbar and mount the angle on top of the crossbar with a leg facing both forward and upward. Take a 1/4" X 6" X 9" long plate, butt it against the angle and weld both top & bottom. Transfer the (2) holes in the seat pan to the plate and clearance drill for 3/8 bolts. Paint and bolt in place.

Bill, I'm sure many members have read this. I just wanted to say thank you before this post leaves page 1. While I don't have the problem at this time, I sure did copy your fix to my tips & tricks maintenance folder. Thanks again............
