Simplicity Sunstar Hydro 20 questions

This tractor was given to me (almost) it has 1290 hours.

It runs well, no smoke.

Intermittently loses electrical- gauges drop off, PTO disengages, but the engine continues to run. then the power comes back.

I'm sure i can find the culprit but if i'd be grateful for any suggestions.

1290 seems like a lot of hours for the engine. Is it a lot for the trans and the hydraulic pump?

Re: Simplicity Sunstar Hydro 20 questions

With reasonable maintenance, the engine should easily go double the hours currently on the clock.

The hydro is basically bullet proof. You won't wear it out. Your grandson might by the time he's retired and ready to pass it on. There are a couple of minor things that can stop it from working, but they usually only cost about $10 and some time to repair.
