6216 Quick Start Help Please

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just bought a Simplicity 6216. By searching the site I have been able to find out how to order manuals. I have a tree down and have to get to work quickly cuttin and hauling to clear a route. I would like to make sure that the tractor is up and ready for the job, and cant wait for my manuals to arrive. Thanks to the searching the site I have checked the engine oil levels - b/s twinn 16hp, and greased the front axles. Also, taken off the tiller and done a couple of other things I would like to check the transmission levels - limited slip diff - but have not found how to do that. Could someone advise me on this. Also, I take it that the tractor will use 89ron unlesded - is that OK? Anything else I should be aware of? The last owner took care of it, I just want to make sure all is in order before I put it work. Sorry for the dumb questions. Anyway it is my first ever simplicity and I am very impressed with the way it is built. Best and thanks, John

Click on this link: http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php Enter the Mfg. No. of your tractor in the box and hit the "Search" button. You will find links to the Operator's Manual and the Parts Manual for your tractor. The Mfg. No. of your tractor is proably one of these numbers: 1690688, 1690756, 1690930 or 1691035. Here is a link to the Repair Manual for 6200 Series Tractors: http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_500_974_00_LT_S.pdf

I run my 6216 on 87 unleaded. To check your gear oil level in the transmission there is a plug on the back of the transmission about 1/3 of the way from the bottom. Remove the plug and see if the gear lube is up to the level the plug.

Great Just a note to say thanks very much for the great advice. It really helped. I like the tractor a lot. Came accross the simplicity by accident - never thought of getting one as I never saw one round here in my part of KY before. It really is a good bit of kit. The only thing I would change is the way that the steering wheel is fixed to the tractor - or not as in my case. I am also going to have to put lug tires on it, as our bit of land is really hilly and muddy. I think with the limited slip diff on it and the lug tires, the tractor is going to be great for here. Best, John

      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!😁
