Early model power steering...Sovereign

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a Sovereign that has the early style power steering ( kit 1691021). I have read this is more of a power steering assist as opposed to full power steering. Is that true?

Guess it depends on your definition of "full power steering".

I've had the older style.  It's not as smooth and, if I remember correctly, the power steering slows down/stops if you use the hydraulic lift while turning the steering wheel.   Maybe that's why some folks say it's an assist type?

the early style power steering works real well if kept cleaned up.  They tend to build up gunk and feel sluggish, both in the valve assembly and mechanical components. They take priority over hydrolift and dont even require hydrolift to be installed on a tractor.  

The late style is more responsive, but I feel its also more impacted by the use of the lift or hard acceleration and prone to wandering.

Guess my memory is backwards!  dz   Having PS priority is much safer.

      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
