Hello folks

     I just purchased a Simplicity Sunstar 20 and can not find what year it may be . Serial # 1691381   002361 .   Tractor data does not break down the sunstar models and years .

       Thanks John

Simplicity did not keep track of year built by serial numbers.  The best way to determine the year is if it has the original engine, the Kohler serial number will tell you the year built.  Also some features can help determine the approx. year.

Does it have a 20hp Kohler Magnum or the 20hp Kohler Command?

1691381 was built for the 1988 thru 1991 production years . Somewhere lurks the serial information on the tractors, not been easy to find that info.

Closest I can get you is by the leading two numbers of the Kohler s/n 18 = '88, 19='89, 20='90 and 21='91.

      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
