Need Help w/Simplicity Lubrication

Recommended Posts

I_Mauer
I just bought a Simplicity Sovereign - 16 HP Cast Iron Briggs (1976) and am not familiar with this drive type. It has a 4 speed shift between the legs and a forward and reverse lever on the right side - (the lever looks just like a hydro unit shift lever). I am not sure what lubricants need to be checked on the transmission or what to use. Unfortunately, the tractor has no model numbers on it at all. So I am stuck as where to find the right manual. Is there any one who can help me attach a model number to this unit? It would be appreciated. I want to make sure I am using the right lubes and verify that they are full for the right angle gear box and the transmission. Thank You. Nagawickal@aol.com

Sounds like you have a Shuttle drive system, but I can't find any reference to one that came with a 16HP Briggs engine. I suspect that someone has changed it over the years.... Try looking for a 7012S or 7014S -- the S strands for Shuttle - like those shown on this Cross-Reference page. http://www.simpletractors.com/X-reference/s_ac_pg4.htm Then, you can take those MFR numbers to the Simplicity Pubs page and see if they have manuals you can download: http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php For this specific question on lubricating the tranny any of the Simplicity Shuttle tractors should give you the info you need...
