7119 sovereign power steering


BDSchmidt

Recommended Posts

I would like to add power steering to my 7119. I am adding a front end loader to this unit and it needs power steering because the hitch mechanism interferes with the rod that is currently there. THe loader was taken off a newer sovereign that had power steering. I presume the kit is still avaiable. Does anyone know the part number and approximate cost? Is it a very difficult installation? THanks in advamce! Brian

I believe 2 different kits were (are) offered. I think I looked the numbers up at one time and posted them. Use the "Search" function for "power steering". It's probably in the archives. You'll have to check with your dealer to find out if either is still available. I never got a price, but someone said they were over $1,000.

Power steering kit #1692856 list price out of a 2003 book is $609. I've installed 3 of these and it takes most of a day to install.So at $40 an hour that would be around $300.Total around $1000. installed with tax.

7119 is same body n stuff as the 75th anniversery style which had the power steering, if that can help you out a lil bit on parts references.

brian I am sure dutch and the others are right on with the pricing and the effort needed to convert over to P/s I just got a NOS sovereign during this winter and it has the p/s option. Let mme start by saying that it is sweet it makes manuvering with a blower on the front effortless another benefit that i just realized is that when tilling my dads garden monday ( his soil is verry moist) the p/s is a godsend on the old sovereign (3112h) those tires got into that moist soil and didnt want to move when you needed to manuver within the confinds of his fenced in garden. As far as the installation goes it does look like it would be on the slightly more difficult end of thigs, i have had my new sovereign appart already doing the rear lift install and installing new dash gagues ect. What i can tell you is that it looks very time consuming but not really difficult if you attack it a section at a time. I rember telling myself " boy i am glad i have this factory installed" [:0] if i can help with pics just pm me or somthing and i can post or email them to you . good luck john b

THanks Tim, and everyone else. I went and picked up that loader the very next morning . What I didn't realize was that the manual steering/draglink setup would not work with the loader due to the loaders mounting frame and where it mounts to the tractor frame. They had removed it from a Sovereign with power steering and weren't aware that there would be a problem with manual steering. I have orderd the kit which I should have by Tuesday. In the meantime, I downloaded the instructions from Simplicity and have started the process. I have all the old steering components out which looks to be the hard part. Now I just need to get the kit installed when it arrives. If it ends up being so great I'll consider putting one in my other Sovereign as well. I'm looking forward to getting that loader working as I have alot of projects around the property that I could use it for. The sellers said it's quite powerful...they could lift the front of their truck with it!? It's built like a Sherman tank. Brian
