Simplicity Landlord/Sovereign

Recommended Posts

Can any one tell me if the drive train is basically the same between a 1964 landlord and a 1969 Sovereign? I looked at a picture they basically look the same. I looked at a transmission/rear end manual appear similar. There is a Sovereign for sale. Perhaps I just need to buy this one instead of repairing my Landlord for now. Jeff

There are quite a few differences. The sovereign will have a different bevelgear box and the transmission is likely set up for variable speed, the variable speed tractors have a longer frame,

If the Sovereign is in running condition, your attachments should fit right on it... As Chris pointed out, the Sovereign should be a variable-drive, 3 speed tranny, while the Landlord is just a standard three-speed. The transmissions aren't directly interchangeable because the variable speed uses a different, longer input shaft. Similarly, the bevel gear boxes are different, because the variable speed has a matching longer output shaft on the bevel gear box also. The Sovereign should be a 12Hp, a significant increase from the 9Hp in the '64 Landlord...

      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 
      Paul
