Sunstar hydro fan

Recommended Posts

Simplicity7013H

Hi all, I removed the mower deck from my sunstar and was inspecting the underside and discovered that the hydro cooling fan has no blades remaining. I found it on the IPL and the part number is 1701912SM and it appears to be discontinued. If anyone know of a cross reference for these fans like maybe on a John Deere or something I would really appreciate it.

Okay thank you!  That's good to at least have something to go by.  Its beyond me as to how every last blade was broken off.  I may have to end up and build a custom metal fan or make a fan from a 90's Landlord or Broadmoor work as I can still get those for just over $6 new from Simplicity.

Elliott; that ePay listing is only from Nov. 15th. It is the right part # and they probably still have it. Only $10 for the right part. Look at the pictures. It is NOS and not broken.....Dave

I will send them a message and see if they still have it. I didn't realize the date on it but thanks for pointing that out Dave! dOd

Thank you but that isn't the fan I'm needing... Actually that is the one that's still available from Simplicity for $6.

I have seen a 14hp Sunstar that did not have the hydraulic radiator, I suppose because it did not have power steering and I don't remember a hydraulic lift.  So they maybe they were cooled with the fan on the Sundstrand.  Many JD with the same transaxle  also did not have a radiator, but they did have the fan on the Sundstrand.

So if it is my tractor...if it has a hydraulic cooler/radiator then I wouldn't worry about the fan on the hydrostat, but if it didn't have the radiator, I would make sure that it has a good working fan on the hydro and it is kept clean.

Sadly its not a power steering tractor so it doesn't have the hydraulic radiator. It seems like this was a pretty base model machine. Just wonder if it would even be worth it to build it up into a "higher end" model.

      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 
      Paul
