...since the ad said"Deutz Allis 16HP".But after driving an hour and a half,came home with an AGCO Allis instead.Has a 16HP Vanguard that dropped a valve,and pretty much destroyed the motor.Also a 48" deck. Don't know if I'm going to fix it,or part it.

I've got the same tractor but '92 in a Broadmoor. Those vanguards are really touchy on the valves. I just did another valve job this summer, and have a spare engine laying in wait for it.

I have this tractor with a trashed Vanguard,and I bought a Broadmoor last year,that also had a trashed Vanguard 12.5HP(threw a rod).According to both previous owners,they both were serviced reguarly,and weren't being worked hard,when they let go.Maybe a coincidence,I don't know. I may try to fit an I/C to this one.One problem is having to come up with a fuel pump,since the tank is under the seat. Matt,I'm not sure about the replaceable filter,I'll have to look.

Mr Goat, fuel pump should be easy, as in a stand alone vacuum pump or a Napa electric pump. IC's should be easy to get such as Murray's where or MTD's where the engine outlasts the mower. A 12 HP if nothing else would handle that frame just right.
