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...

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
