Looking at a Sunstar

Recommended Posts

Havent posted here in a long time and need ya'lls help again. Spotted a Sunstar Sunday with a 16HP single cylinder Kohler, 48 inch deck with 1700 hours[V] on the clock. Would imagine the engine is orginal? Going to look at it again today or tomorrow. The guy asking $350 for it. Could part it at the very least. Thanks Steve

For 350 bucks what else could you get? If it don't smoke and it cuts grass tie a chain to it and your bumper the 16 hp is a solid engine if im not mistaken. if it's Simplicity and it runs man jump on it.

When Simp. first came out with the Sunstar, they did not sell well as they were very expensive to produce. After the first year or so Simplicity panicked and came out with the cheap versions with the 16 and 18 horse singles, some even had 42" decks. The singles didnt last long, only a year or two. So you are probably looking at the least desirable version of the SunStar. Still a very good tractor though, for that kind of money you cant go wrong unless something serious is wrong with the engine or trans.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
