If the data on the AC 718H is correct and it is the same, it was made in 1979 (perhaps other years too), and it does have a big Kohler single... This must be just before they went to the 17 and 19hp Kohler twins that seem to have some reliability issues.... Dunno for sure....[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/models/700_series/718-h.htm'][img src='http://www.simpletractors.com/images/700_series_images/ac_718h.jpg'][/a]

The original engine should be a K361QS if I remember right. Most of the engine specs are the same as the K341 16 HP. It was an overhead valve single cylinder engine. Most of the people I have talked to say that the engines had problems with wear to the valve assembly. It was made somewhere between 1978 and 1979. As far as I know it never made it into the 900 series AC or 7100 series Simplicity. (??) Thats all I know. Sam

I am currently restoring a 7018H Simplicity Sovereign tractor.I need to obtain the paint colors and paint numbers for getting it into original condition. Are there any aftermarket paints that will work. I also would like to get a repair manual for this tractor. Perhaps a parts manual also. I looked on this forum but could not find the specifications for this 7018 model. Iwould like to have the specifications also.What years was this tractor produced?My tractor has a Kohler 341 16Hp engine. It runs good and needs little work. Is this the original engine for the 7018 tractor? Any information would be appreciated. Jim Bute

Hey All I am going to get this in before leaving town for a couple of weeks. According to the spec.'s on the link you gave Kent on this tractor it states the engine is a 16hp Kohler k361s. Where the 18 comes into play on the tractor itself I just can't figure unless its a type-O- also I thought Briggs had a 18 hp single cylinder and not Kohler as thats what Mark told me he installed on my Homelite was the Briggs??? Been wrong more the write and could be this time also. You all take care, >>->happyjack<-<<

I also have a 7018H. It has the original engine,which I rebuilt last year.When I got the tractor the head gasket was blown,after rebuilting the engine and running 15 hours the head gasket went again.The also got very hot.The tractor is sitting in the shed,when I have chance to fix the tractor again.

I have a 7018H. It has the original engine, which is a Kohler 18 H.P. single cylinder engine, Model #K361QS, Spec. #23107A. I think it is a great engine with A LOT of torque. I've never had a problem with it and use it to mow about an acre regularly. Has about 824 hours on it.

Kohler 18 OHV was only put in for a few yrs.It also was in the Sim 7018H.As long as they are still running,they are a good eng,keep valves adjusted as they have pushrod problems,like popping out thru the valvecover!When parts are needed now that can be a problem,,,
