Simplicity Sovereign 18 hydro

Recommended Posts

Just bought this Simplicity Sovereign 18 Hydro with a tiller,mower deck and snow blower.Runs good,has hydraulics and power steering. the problem is the drive shaft going into the gear box (shaft coming out of the gear box) is flopping all around apparently something came appart.How hard are parts or another gearbox to find.Also what is everyone's opinion of these tractors?

If it's got the 90 degree gearbox, then parts are easy enough to find. Sounds like your bearing has come apart. You could get the bearing at most any bearing supply or through dealer. All these tractors are great! And to have power steering is even better. Whole gearboxes can be had off ebay pretty cheap.

Another thing, could just be the fiber disk coupler is breaking apart instead of a bearing? If so, should be an easy fix. You can stack 2 fiber disks on top of each other if you have a problem with them breaking.

I took the disc off and the end of the shaft will go forward and back and wobble around.Guess I need to pull the back end off the tractor to fix it? Also when was this made and what Allis if any compares? thanks

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
