Help. My sunstar is sick

Recommended Posts

Whenever I go to engage the pto, the rpm's bog way down, is there an electronic adjustement to keep idle up when pto is engaged. Tractor runs great but has no power when deck is engaged.. E mail me at setj@juno.com...Thank you Scott

Has anybody worked on the engine before the problem started? I did some carb work on my D-A Ultima (Deutz version of the Sunstar) and the service manual described how to adjust the governor/throttle linkage. I remember reading how to adjust the linkage if the RPM's dropped too much when the pto was engaged. If it's had work done on it, perhaps the linkage is adjusted incorrectly. Another possibility is the governor spring being worn out or stretched - but I would think that would happen slowly over time and not something that suddenly happens. Tom

There is a thread where too low of an RPM might cause more damage then good. The only other thng I can think of is the correct governor to carb adjustment, to make sure governor is at its optimum. Go here........... http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=35187

      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
