How to tell if you have one of those KT's

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have a real nice Simplicity 7119 that is in almost mint original condition. It has the KT 19 horse twin in it. Now I've heard all the bad things about the KT's but I just learned that there was a series 1 and a series 2. Am I correct? If so how do you tell if it's a good one or a bad one? So far it's done a summers worth of mowing and is getting ready to do a winters worth of plowing. I guess I just want to know if I'll be replacing the engine anytime in the near future. It runs really nice and smooth, so I hope I won't be doing this at all. Thanks in advance for the info. Cheers! Steve

The series 2 is marked series two on the serial number. The reason they blow is that are an oil bath system and they will starve for oil on slopes. The series 2 has an oil pressure system and won't blow as easily. jh

      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
