Deutz 1920 Repower FINISHED!

Recommended Posts


For the past few years I had been kicking around repowering the Deutz 1920. This summer my old Kohler Magnum finally gave up the ghost and a repower was in order. Purchased a new CH640-3126 engine and the project was under way. Had to drill new holes to relocate the motor on my mounting plate. Also had to purchase the driveshaft from a Sunstar with a Command as the original shaft was an inch too short. 

After this was done, had to replumb the fuel line as well as install a longer choke cable. Additionally, I had to purchase a new PTO clutch as it is different from a Command to a Magnum. All said and done, I am pretty pleased with the results. When cutting, I don't feel like this tractor will ever run out of power! 

1 hour down on the clock and hoping for many more. 

If anyone has any questions about the repower process, please don't hesitate to ask. IMG_20180916_193526.thumb.jpg.1423e611e01d5d9d57f4a941e5099fe6.jpg

Correct. I had a inkling to install a 27hp EFI command, but I didnt want to throw an extra 7hp at a 30yr old hydro. So I got the spec number from a friend with a Sunstar Command and got the corresponding motor. 

Technically its rated at 20.5hp

      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
