Not knowing what you did for an overhaul leaves it pretty open to a wild guess, but I'd say check for forgotten keys in PTO pulley or any pulley heading to the tiller. Not to hard to forget one as your almost completed by that point and may be hurring-up a bit. MPH

Your tractor is probably a Sovereign 3012 from 1969. This had a briggs and Stratton 12 hp on it. The engine model numbers are stamped into the flywheel shroud on the left side of tractor near carburator. I thought mine were missing until I used a little oil and sandpaper and found them.[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/1969_spotlight/sovereign_3012.htm']http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/1969_spotlight/sovereign_3012.htm[/a]

got her running - after much work and pulling things apart etc. the old girl is now going - the problem was two fold - the idler pulley was in the wrong position and the guide assembly rod was bent so thanks to one and all for your help and advice.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
