2000 sovereign & plowblade

Recommended Posts

maxwood
Hello, after finding a simplicity snow blade on C-list, I went to pick it up. The owner had a 2000 sovereign with a blown motor,18 hp I think?It looked complete but the weeds were grown up around it. The question is will the parts from this fit my early 80s 7119 (169 0638)? I am in need of steering parts, and the 2000 has the rear lift hitch. Without driving It, it might be a crap shoot as to whether the hydraulics or trans is working. The seller is asking $300 as a parts machine Ken in Mi

Thanks for all the replies, I bought the plow for $100 ,and am trying to decide what I should do? Buy it and have it for parts, or possibly repower with a vanguard The seller also has a tiller for sale. What are used tillers selling for ? He is kind of remembering he paid over $7000 for the tractor, plow & tiller in 2000 Ken in Mi

A good 36" tiller will bring $150-$400 depending on where you are in the US and the time of year. It must be complete with the tiller drive idler pulleys. The 36" tiller sells new for I think $1500 or so.

I don't think you could go too wrong. I bought the same tractor for $100 with a blown triad 18. I'm really happy with it after putting a kohler magnum 18 in it. And I wouldn't worry too much about the hydro. The fluid in mine was horrible looking brown crap and I just changed it and the filter. Works great now!

I went to pickup the Sovereign today (1693409). Got it for $200 the motor was in a box ,No mower deck. Owner said It was making a racket when he turned it off two years ago. It does have power steering ! I will be looking to repower this tractor, Any suggestions ? I saw small engine warehouse has a repower kit for about $1400 using the 18 hp vanguard Thanks for all the input! Ken in Mi

You stole that tractor. It's a little more $$$ than the Vanguard you mention, but it'll be a great tractor with the stock earlier Command engine in it: http://www.kohler-engine-parts.opeengines.com/full-line-of-kohler-engines/command-ch-cv-series-11-to-40-hp/horizontal-twin-cylinder-ch-18-to-40-hp/ch18-18hp/18hp-kohler-command-engine-ch18s-simplicity-soverign-62513 I believe the shipping is included in the $1597 price. It's pretty much a "drop in" install job except for the driveshaft. The economy must be getting better - a few months ago that engine could be had for $150 cheaper. And if you want to see how the new tractor runs, you could always swap in the KT-19. Assuming there are holes in the frame for that engine, it also would be a drop in, driveshaft included. You'd only have to swap out the ignition switch since the KT-19 is battery ignition and the Kohler in the new tractor (probably a OHC 18 HP) was a magneto ignition.

you can look in my gallery Thanks Ken in Mi
I think I found the problem of you picture posting. Edit it again and upload your picture as this "0195.jpg". If this does the trick PM me and I will delete your old picture. Symbols will cause the picture not to display.

If this is the tractor you picked up it doesn`t have power steering in the picture.


Here is mine with power steering. The 1693409 is non power steering according to the manual. It is still a good buy at $200 dollars. http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=jgEDGP_dsI8tG5EPl7mRgtLvBCd6

Yeah ! That's it, After looking closer ,It does not have power steering. It does have Moss growing on the seat! I will wait till spring to repower it! It had been sitting outside 2-3years so the pulleys are a little rusty. Thank's Ken in Mi
