Sunstar clutch bearing

Recommended Posts


John from Iowa here, thanks for letting me on your site! Picked up a simplicity sunstar 20 a couple weeks ago and the front pto was stuck on. On further inspection it appears the magnet and the switch work, but the bearing in the pulleys is shot. I don't see this as a separate part on the breakdowns. It has 80370088 stamped on the side of the sleeve. Has anyone done this repair before and possibly have a part number? Thanks in advance for any help, I'm kind of new to this garden tractor business!

Welcome to the club John.  I'm not sure on those clutches but the Powermax are NLA

Can't really recall any discussion of the clutch on Sunstar,

I would call Brenda at Sandy Lake Imp. in Pennsylvania, probably no one more knowledgable about parts for these older tractors

Thanks for the lead. I think if I get the bearings out I can order new ones. I'll report back if I come up with a solution including part numbers. I found a company that makes an upgrade/replacement for the whole clutch, but it's like $350 bones.

      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
