I am new to "GT" and just purchased my 1st lawn tractor, Simplicity 2001 Broadmoor MDL 1693817, has 178hrs. on meter, 38" deck, double bagger and 2stage snowblower.

Original engine 16 hp I believe has been replaced with B&S Extended Life V Twin 22 hp.

Questions:  Is this engine a good one ? Do I have a K61 Tuff Torq or a K57 and does it matter with this engine?

Fluids look good, PTO engages, mower cuts and bagging system appears to work.

Thank You

Welcome to GTT. I don't know the answers to your questions but you might find what you want in our Manuals Section. Someone that is knowledgeable in the newer Simplicitys will be along to help. My Simplicitys are from the 60s and 70s. Good Luck, Rick
