I went with my brother in law sat. up to his dad's place to help clean out the pole shed, his dad a( former Simplicity dealer) passed away a year ago and they are getting ready to sell the homestead. Anyway, lo and behold what's sitting in the garage........a brand new never run older vintage 18hp sovereign (with power steering)Same as 7000 series. Well my brother in law tells me they tried to start it last week, but the original battery was dead. It's a good thing they didn't I spent over 2 hours cleaning mice nests out of the engine etc. Put in new battery and gas, it fired right up. Well when the place sells it's all mine and I can't tell you the price because it would make you all cry. Even if I have to replace the 18hp ohc kohler, I can't lose............. I did also come home with an almost mint 48 deck also, and some smaller odds and ends. There were a bunch of tractors out in the back 40, dynamark and small frame simplicities, I'll get a better read on that stuff when I go up to get the 6 or 7 vintage snowmachines this fall. What a saturday it was...................

      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
