Simplicity Sunstar needs parts

I have a 1996 Simplicity Sunstar Tractor with Hydro drive Model 1692135 with a 20 hp Kohler V twin engine in it. I need a fuel pump for this engine, but I cannot determine from the sticker on the engine what the engine model number is. it was worn off by the fuel line. Does this engine have a model number stamped somewhere else besides this paper sticker? The fuel pump is square, with an inlet hose for fuel and two other hose connections for?

I did a google search of your tractor and got a hit from TractorData.com - information on all makes and models of tractors. There's a listing for the engine with specifications and an email address to ask questions.

If it has 3 lines on it, then it's the type that is operated by crankcase pressure fluctuations. This is the type you'll need. It's not square, the style changed through the years, but this is it.

Sunstar Fuel Pump

Hey Cheese,

You said this is the type you need, but no pic or numbers unless I missed them somewhere?

I'm good. Used the "Tractor Data Site" and zeroed in on the Engines used that year. Cool site, Putting into my favorites now.

Glad you got it figured out. Just wanted to see if the link would post. I must not have pasted it in my reply I guess.

It's a bit more work, and sometimes pretty tight quarters, but, if you can get to it without having to tear into things too bad, I would replace the line from the crankcase that Cheese mentioned as well. 20 years of oil and heat, and I've seen some of those pulse lines get pretty mushy.

Sunstar Fuel Pump

The line is not too hard to get to, and probably a good idea to replace. I'm on it!

Thanks!

Sunstar needs parts

Got the new fuel pump and filters I ordered yesterday. A joy to behold as I watched the filter fill up as I cranked the engine (and then start) Did not have to replace the hoses as solid to the touch. With 1200 hours I am probably due for some piston rings on this engine too. Can't wait.
