Recommended Posts

i have a '70 simplicity 3212H soverign and have not figured out how to engage the rear pto. i just got it last november and have'nt had much time to look into it . the shaft moves alittle when i move the hydro drive lever(on the right side)when the engine is not running . i had my daughter drive it so i could see if it moved while it was in motion. no it did not move . any help on this question would help me greatly. matt

Thats not a rear pto. Its Just a shaft that engages the hydro unit. The only rear pto on the soveriegn is the on that runs off the beveled gear box.

That is not the rear power take off. The bevel gear box is in front of the rear axle about halfway up the tractor. This is where your power take off for the mower deck in the middle gets its power from. That is also where the rear attachments get their power. That rod that you are describing is just the rear end of the hydrostat control and will never spin when you are running the tractor. Good luck. Clayton

Matt, Simplicity terminology can be confusing at first (it was to me). The "rear" PTO and "center" PTO are at the same location. Where the belts go determines if is called "center" or "rear."

Simplicity also adds to the confusion, and calls this a "rear PTO" in some places, yet they call it a "tiller drive" in other places. Making matters worse, some rear implements required it, and others didn't. My vac supposedly came off a B-12, and it has a crossshaft so it could take power from either side (drive pulley or PTO) and has its own engagement clutch (idler pulley and lever). So, I have two clutches to control it, one on the tiller drive, and another on the vac itself.... ....[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1963/ThreePTOs.htm']http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1963/ThreePTOs.htm[/a]

      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
