1997 Simplicity Sunstar...maybe mine this weekend

Recommended Posts

I'm going to look at a Sunstar this weekend. All I know is it's the original owner with paperwork. 590 hours. Everything works well, has been meticulously maintained by dealer. NO known issues. It has the 20hp twin...60" deck No smoke, power loss, oil burning, leaking...except slow leak in a tire. What should I look for specifically...any weak links with these specific tractors? I plan on checking all the basics...I'm worried about big money or parts availability for the hydro etc.... If all works well with these hours..what is a fair price? I'm also interested in a fellow members 7116 but he is so far away I just don't know when I can get there...Big difference between the two?

        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
