Very nice! I have the tractor that is supposed to go on, and the sub frame will give you the same mount points as the sovereign hitch. I think you'll be impressed how easy it is to fit up. All you'll need is a single pulley hitch, a belt and lift rod.

If you want to sell the sub frame pulleys, or the whole sub frame let me know, I'd love to run a thrower off my conquest.

Hey Brian

I guess u mean by the single pulley hitch , the regular blower hitch right ? if so do u have one ?

Yes, a standard hitch. I do not have a single pulley hitch as all of my stuff is front PTO driven, but it shouldn't be too hard to come up with one. I believe Ray makes them.

Yes sir, that was my father. We've been trying to sell down some of our gear, but so far its been difficult actually selling anything. We end up keeping things for "just in case".

Where in Danbury are you? I work by the airport.

I wouldn't cut that hitch, it wont work at all unless you're going to cut it into stock, and that will destroy any value to sell it to someone with a newer Simplicity if it doesn't work out as well as you hoped. I don't think any of that frame will line up correctly as a starting point either.

Grinchey, I saw that and then it fell off the classifieds, I figured it sold. Do you still have it?

Yes! I just did this on my Sovereign...

And used these switches;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-waterproof-DPDT-MomentaryOffMomentary-ONOFFON-Toggle-Switches-15A-12-/261332883174

They are direct replacements for the factory switch, and came with rubber boots to keep water/dust out. Depending on where you're looking in the wiring, there should only be two wires, but it's possible you're seeing power and ground as well as the two motor leads.

Like I said, if you want to sell me that hitch setup to help pay for the for the cost of the you need, I'm game. :D

Sold it.

I find the 7100/900 series to be too big and that 16HP Kohler was just too much of a shaker for me. It went to another collector who got a case of green paint fever pretty bad. I think if I go back into that size it will have to be one of the last Sovereign 18's with the v-twin Kohler and power steering.

Radio Shack is another good source for switches, just as an FYI. But git 'em whilst the gittin's good, because I don't think ol' Radio Shack is much longer for this world. If they are still around in a few years I will be a bit surprised.

Brian, you would like the later models if the 900/7100 feels too big. The later ones seat you up higher and have a lower hood front. They feel a bit smaller that way.

I prefer the 900/7100 over all the rest though....love the low-slung seat position and tall, long hood. PS makes them a dream come true! (To me!) =)

Burntime, glad I could help out!:D I sure miss the days when Radio Shack actually carried a lot of common electronic parts. Now if they do not stock something they tell you to order on line and pick it up at the store. Guess what save the drive ship to home. I think customer service is getting to be a thing of the past. Ok now that I have moved this way off topic, can't wait to see that blower mounted up and a review of how it works!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
