Muffler P/N for Kohler KT-17S "Series II" for 917H

Recommended Posts



First time poster.  I have an Allis Chalmers 917H (catalog number 1690574, S/N 4099) for which the muffler just recently gave up the ghost.  I'm tired of wearing earplugs while cutting the grass and I'm sure the neighbors aren't too happy either!  

I've searched the usual sites on the web and found the exploded parts list for the 1690574 "earlier" serial numbers (something like 1 - 2000 something) and the muffler referenced there is part number 1666923SM.  I've found these available for sale ($224.35!! GULP!!) but am concerned whether this is the right part number or not.

Anybody have the answer to this riddle?


Lt Dan

P.S. If anyone has a line on a good used muffler for sale I'd love to know about it.

1666923 is the original part#. So add the SM after it & you have the correct $224.35 muffler.

Welcome to the club & the wonderful world of Simplicity mufflers.  If you were looking for one for a Kohler Command Sovereign, it would cost over double that!

      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
