Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I just picked up a ??1974?? 3416h Soveriegn yesterday and i am going to restore it in the spring...but i dont know what colors i need. i want to keep the colors the same or close to the original. So...can anyone tell me the colors they used originally and what is the closet match. Im trying to get all the colors by dupli-color, but really anything is fine. THANKS ALL!!! Mike PS...Found this orangey color i think is close to simplicity, but i dont know if it is the same...another club member said he uesd this color and that it was closest to the original simplicity color.

The 1974 Sovereign hood and wheels were a light grey instead of the cream white like the later tractos. Most people refinish with the cream color. The 1974 Baron was cream and orange. I do not know what grey may match, I have always touched up using Plasti-kote "off white" and Chevy engine orange. Whole tractor repaint I use Simplicity paint.

The DE 1607 Is a great match For the older 725 The 1620 should be used for the newer machines http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=77887 1620 on the LL very orange

1607 on the 725 more red in it

      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
