Recently purchased a 1995 sovereign in awsome shape but there is no forward or reverse changed fluid and filter .Belt is like new deck lift goes up and down like it should 

Not sure what is going on with this I can push down the two pop valve's with finger while running at fast rpm is this normal tractor does not look like is been used much any ideas? ?

Thanks Scott

The down position disengages the pump.  Will the buttons push themselves back up when running?

 

If you lift up the seat deck, when you move the hydro lever front and back does the cam and lever system on the trans move?  if not maybe the lever is lose on its shaft?

On that vintage tractor the OEM set-up for a blower was a single pulley blower mount and a long belt to the Cone Clutch on the center gearbox (BGB) .  You also have to move the idler pulley so the belt angle rides correctly if it was set for the mower deck.  Two tabs on the side plate bracket.  You may have to adjust idler tension, so the edge of the idler bracket is in the green zone.  Might have to wipe off some crud to see it though.

Stole that tractor...WOW

WOW is exactly what I said to myself. The deck is worth $150 or more.

 

I think sometimes that people consider some of these tractors on par with your typical newer Craftsman, Husky, John Deere, etc. 18hp was the largest engine available after all.

And it was “broke” - a dead tranny, so it was time to get a new one rather than repair it.

While I agree that if the tranny was truly broke, it probably wouldn’t pay to have it professionally repaired, many people today don’t have the basic mechanical skills or interest to investigate a problem to find the real issue.

And most repair shops (at least around here) would charge a minimum of $200 or more to diagnose the problem plus a pickup charge if you couldn’t get the tractor to the shop yourself.  

Hence get a new one and dispose the old one.

      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
