I have recently purchased a Simplicity 6216,
not a 6212 as I had posted before. Sorry for the
confusion. The man I bought it from has no idea what year it is.
Could someone please help. It has a 16 horse twin.
What year did they start making these engines.
One last thing, I am in the market for a used
snowplow for this machine. Thank you for your help.

TB, That model-1690135/1690688 was made from '81-'87 check on the left tin shield as you sit on trac. by spark plug. There you should see some #s stamped in the metal. Look at 1st 2 digits under 'code' that's the yr. eng was made,trac. is usually 1 yr. newer than eng yr. Look at used mower network, there might be your plow for sale there or try classifieds in our site! Which by the way is the best one on the net!! Good Luck! dlc

TB, I was just looking it up but Dave beat me to it. A site "Search" yields the following from the "X-Ref Table".
A 6216 with product number 1690688 was built in 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984.
One with number 1690930 in 1984, 1985.
And one with number 1691035, year(s) unspecified.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
