Need Assistance With Sovereign Deck

Recommended Posts

If you can find a larger pulley that works (might be a problem), the deck height adjusters will hit the bottom of the running boards. You would be happier with a deck that is made for the running board tractors. Been there and tried that.

I believe the all of 48" deck rollbars and height adjusters configurations are the same for both FDT and RBT tractors. Its the 42" decks that have the compatibility problems.

had a 48" deck off of 3212 on a 7016. changed mount from rbt to older deck. all holes were there. left small pulley on deck. deck run a little faster and did a great job mowing, used for over two years and never had to change a bearing.

My bad, I forgot there are differences in lift points. The FDT decks lift with a chain connected to the rear bail assembly. The RBT decks have the special eyebolt for the cable lift to connect to. I have a deck here from a 3212V that is has both types of lift points on it. The modification would be minimal. You would just drill a hole and add the eyebolt, but would need to make a hole in your belt cover for the eyebolt.

      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!😁
