Sunstar & Deutz 1920 restorations w/pics.

Recommended Posts

I'm now a member! I've been working on restoring a 1986 Sunstar and a 1987 or '88 (not sure which year) Deutz Allis 1920. The Sunstar is getting a complete resto, while the DA 1920 is just getting a "quickie". Here are a few pics of my progress so far on the Sunstar:

Here are a few of the DA 1920. I don't have any of before I started because this was going to be a parts tractor, but I changed my mind.

Still working on the hoods. All the painting is done, just waiting a while before putting it all back together. Already have all the decals, most of which I had to have custom made. I will post more pics when I am done. This has been a lot of fun and a lot of work! I'm already looking for more project tractors, but they are hard to come by!

Hi Very nice! Those two tractors are coming along very nicely! Glad to see some restoring these great tractors. My 1920H is at the 1,115hr mark. In a few years it will be time for a restoration. They are a great tractor! I have had mine for 5 years now and don't regret buying it all. Mine has been very good tractor and have worked her hard and she just holds in there. These are a well built tractor. I won't give up mine anytime soon! Take Care Jason B

Welcome Kevin. I also am a huge fan of the Sunstar/Ultima line and glad to some one paying attention to them. Mine never stop working long enough to get prettied up. Keep us posted on your progress they are looking good!

      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
