simplicity sovereign 3112 Hydro

Recommended Posts

I would like some clarification on this please. The hydraulic fluid is low in the canister where the filter is, Iam not sure as to what type of fluid goes in here. It looks like transmission fluid. What type do I use?.

There is a round cylinder on the left side of the tractor that says to use 10w 30 oil and to fill to line, but I cant find no line what is this for. Iam getting a lot of questions coming your way as I am new to the Orange tractors.

Are you referring to the transmission fluid or the hydraulic lift fluid? They are separate systems and use different grades of oil. The hydraulic lift uses 10w-30 motor oil. The transmission uses Dextron ATF.

I hope this helps you to fully enjoy the use of your new/old Simplicity tractor. Take care of that tractor and it will take care of you for many many years!

You have a Vickers hydro transmission. The original fill was the red ATF fluid - Dexron. That's what I'm still using in mine. I believe others have used other ATF fluids. IMO, it's best to use whatever is in it and not mix fluid types.The round cylinder is a hydraulic lift. It probably looks like this:

You can see the fill port on the tank. I believe the "fill line" is on the decal which is in bad shape.If you put "990468" into the manuals search box you'll be able to download instructions for the hydraulic lift. (Manual link can be found at top of this forum page, fourth "sticky" post down.

Welcome to the club.

3112H HP 12 Product 990499 /500 Engine Model 300421 Engine type 0127-01†

The six digit product number will get a operators manual and parts list by going to the same sticky as mentioned above. Most or a good portion of the parts are NLA but you can use them as reference as there are used parts still available.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
