is there a best motor in simplicitys ?
Simplicity has a long history running Briggs and Stratton engines. The large frame garden tractors ran cast iron 10-16hp 1 cylinder long stroke Briggs until around the mid 80's , then switched to Kohler twins after that until the end of production. Every engine in simplicity that we owned went over 2000 hrs, most closer to 3000 before an overhaul was needed. Nowadays , Briggs owns Simplicity so most are back to Briggs
But to answer your question I really like the old cast iron Briggs 12-16 hp engines for the fuel efficiency and torque but my favorite pulling motor was the Kohler KTII 17-19 hp twins in the 7117 and 7119 for the sound and power even though they are thirsty.
