My Deutz Ultima 1920 (Sunstar) Full Build

Was never a GT guy but into cars. Built my house and dreamed of building a tractor with a FEL for almost 16 years now. Finally figured my back is shot I need something to help me lift things. I found a Deutz local and decided to just buy it and see what can be done. It was a basket case and in the end I wish I would have passed on it. Blown engine, blown Sundstrand, dents and rust. It was listed as garage kept and waxed often and looked good in the craigslist pictures.
So my fist mistake was the engine choice 4A032 Military surplus engine. Its 32 CI flat 4 air cooled it spins the wrong way and air flow is the wrong way. I flipped everything so coolers were now in the grill and air went threw the engine and out the hood. Also Sundstrand was flipped and I converted to pedals to make room for the FEL controls. It fit so nice and everything was built around that motor. Problem is the tractor got out of hand and I had a 13GPM pump that would stall that little motor anytime any cylinder hit end of stroke. Also this little Deutz got very heavy close to 3000 LBS with the backhoe and that little engine struggled just to move it. So after 3 years I pulled the engine and put a Kohler EFI 26.5 HP and that thing has more power than I can use. Never wanted a diesel and this EFI puts out more torque then any diesel I could fit in this thing.
The loader is a L360 Case loader off of the Case / Boomer 55hp tractors and I cut it down to fit this little GT. Also has the QDQA front end so I can quick attach any john deere front accessories like my forks. The back hoe is a Kubota BT600, was going to build one but then found this cheap. It takes seconds to change out the bucket or forks and 3-5 minutes to take off the 3pt arms and attach the backhoe.

Wow, now that is some fabrication to get it set up like that! One of the only other "Green" Tractors I'd like to own, came close to getting one and missed it. That has to be the biggest ballast box I've seen on any GT! Kudo's on the work you did to get it personalized for your use!

The yard cart weighs 475lbs empty, I have put two big people in it and its still goes up at 975lbs. Have lifted 1200lbs with the forks but the 6 ply tires pretty much flatten out.
