Sovereign I picked up today

Recommended Posts

 Picked up this nice package today.  Previous owner did a little welding mod on the underside of deck.  Spindles turn flawlessly and no wobble.

In the thief's (er, Alltractoredup) Craigslist/eBay forum post about this tractor, I asked for the MFG# of the tractor.  This is the reply:

Unfortunatly, the Mfg printed number has worn off.  It does have a driveshaft end I have not seen before on the flywheel side.  It is about 3" longer.  If it was a Triad its still running strong.  The previous owner took the engine out of the Simplicity and put it in his Woods zeroturn mower.  He thought the Woods would be better for mowing on hills.  He admitted he was very wrong.  Its odd he removed the engine from the Sovereign when there was nothing wrong with tractor....

And my reply:

If the engine driveshaft end looks like this:

Then the engine was a Command; the driveshaft uses the rubber coupler.

Since it has Metallic Grey Wheels and a newer seat (but still used the old long seat hinges) it's probably a  MFG# 1692450 Sovereign.  It had the Command engine.

I guess the PO wasn't a fan of the anti-scalp rollers.

Hello, On the frame, by the left front wheel is a silver tag, with the tractor info  . it may still be readable? 

If your considering a repower, I like the Harbor freight predator  22 hp v twin, that I put in my sovereign  .$699

 

thanks Ken in Mi

Yes, the tag is there but no print.  Sometimes I can see the indentation of the letters but no such luck.

You can try laying a piece of paper over the tag and lightly rubbing a pencil over it.  It might bring the print out.

Nice machine! I really like the Sovereign 18's. I have had mine for sale for a while now but it still hasn't sold so I have just decided to keep it. The PS and hydrolift are awesome for plowing with the big 46" blade in the winter. I hope this is a great machine for you!! dOd

      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
