Sovereign seat help

I put this one from ebay on my 707 and love it.  For my 7119, I tore the vinyl off and took the pan and padding to a local upholstery shop.  $50 well spent.

While cutting with my A/C917H last September, I nearly rolled off the back going up the hill. The pan gave way on my seat.

I went to TSC and got this.

I needed to add the piece of wood so the springs would hold the seat level. Not original, but practical.

Years back I picked up this generic seat at Lowes:

Similar seats can be found at Northern Tool, eBay, etc.

 But it only had these mounting holes:

None of the holes were suitable for the hinged seat brackets, so out came the drill and threaded rivet kit and now we have the required mounting holes:

Then bolt on the brackets:

And bolt the seat to the tractor:

When I first mounted the seat, it was tilted backward too much for my taste (very noticeable compared to the Simplicity seat). Luckily the Homelite seat pan has the drop off in front and I was able to reverse the bracket that mounts to the seat deck so the the loop is down rather than up. That solved the problem:

Your seat brackets are different, but I'm sure you can do the same thing.

      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
