Missing ID info on engine

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone. Just joined and my first time posting here. I have a Simplicity Sunstar with the Command engine that I use for blowing snow. I just picked up another Sunstar with a 60" deck, 3 point hitch and 42" Befco tiller. This tractor has the Kohler Magnum 20 HP engine. The engine is in need of repair which I knew at time of purchase. Of course every time I go to look up engine parts online, the first thing wanted is the info off of the decal on the engine. Well, herein lies the problem. That decal is long gone. What I'm wondering is if anyone has a Sunstar with the 20 Magnum engine in it that might be able to provide the necessary info off of the tag. The engine I have has the newer style "D" pistons. I'm hoping if I can get the info I can at least make it past the first bit of info required when trying to do anything online.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
