As far back as 1977, Bolens said the QT-16's were equipped as the following:

 

1973 # 1666-01 used Onan BF-MS/2425A

1974 # 1666-02 used Onan BF-MS/2425B & /2425C

1975 # 1666-03 Used Onan BF-MS/2938D

1976 # 1666-03 used Onan BF-MS/2938D & /2938E

1977 # 1666-03 used Onan BF-MS/3283F

 

Is your QT-16 a later model?  ...Possibly this is where Garden Way got their info ?????

Mine has no serial number plate.  The one on youtube is a 1973.  The B43M-GA016 was 50cc bigger (still 16hp) and had an oil filter.  I'm wondering if it might have been used in the first models-- or offered as a replacement engine?

Bolens usually or often had two "Model" numbers for their 4 wheel tractors. :smilewink: 

I can buy that a whole lot easier.  Thanks for the correction.

Is the G12Xl and a G12 two different models or are they the same tractor?  I am thinking the Xl series is the Medium frame and the G12 is a tube frame.

Correct, two different machines
