Simplicity 7018 Sovereign questions

Recommended Posts

john
What size engine came on this unit? Found one that is in fair condition for $300, the dealer said the engine is bad and I am wondering if it's worth fixing? It is a twin cylinder. What is involved in replacing the engine (assuming worse case)? Is it a briggs, kohler or onan?

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks,

Bill

If that tractor has a 2 cyl. eng. in it,it's not the original.The original was a single cyl. 18HP Kohler overhead valve,not the greatest eng. around,so if there's a twin in it now,you'll know why! A single cyl. cast-iron L-head Briggs OR Kohler will fit right in the trac. with no problems!The price for it sure seems decent,as long as it's complete with a deck.It's supposed to come with a 48" mower and hydro transmission. Good Luck! dlc

The Smiplicity 7018 Sovereign had a kohler cast iron engine with over head valves model K-361QS.
I have a AC-718 with the Kohler K-361QS. I just rebuilt the engine&repainted the whole tractor,same as Simplicity 7018 Sovereign.
hope this helps karl brandt

Sure thing, Dave. And you'd have to 'flop' the PTO belt rotation so that it would eat belts in no-time flat!
And if you can't find enough K-361s, you could put an early Vanguard in it!
They sure would be unique. A Simplicity that didn't run well, didn't cut well, and ate belts! (Hey, isn't that a Murray or an AYP?) (Personal opinion, don't sue me, your mileage may vary.)
