I was aware that the Sunstar was the Deutz-Allis Ultima and numbered 1918 & 1920 ( I have a 1920). Found this in a pile of tractors today: A D-A 1916:6082328093059_20210422_1537411.thumb.jpg.09f4d02399686c47584ba21db6a279b4.jpg

And looking on Tractordata.com, I see there was a 1914.

When they discontinued the 7100/900 series tractors the first time back when the Sunstar first came out, the single cylinder Sunstars were appaarently meant to fill the gap where the 7100 series had been deleted. The singles all had manual steering and were offered with a 42' and 48" deck option.

From what I have read, it was a marketing backfire. Customers who had all the 7100 series were not happy. I believe the next model year briefly brought the 7100 series back, and the shortly after as the GTH-L and 900 series Deutz, but with only one engine option and the Hydro as the only transmission offered. It was either at that time or soon after that the single cylinder Sunstars were eventually phased out.

 

At least thats how I recall what I have read  and heard on the history surrounding this.

 

You didnt say whether the tractor came home with you or not????9_9

      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!😁
