Had some time to work on the 1920 today and it seems to start and run fine. No smoke and speeds up rapidly when the throttle is advanced. The low speed jet or mixture is going to need some attention as it get's a little rough if idled down real low. The noise he heard is a bit of a mystery. The two spot welds that secure the base for the air filter stud were broken loose and everything was bouncing around. I don't know if that is what he heard or not. I have not engaged the PTO yet so something might turn up there.

  Had the tractor out today for the first time and can't for the life of me find anything wrong with it. It will lift far more than the Bolens will and the loader is faster by quite a bit. There does seem to be more play in the steering than should be and I will have to research that. There is no smoke or unusual noises from the engine that I can find. The oil pressure light goes out shortly after the engine is turning over. The Carburetor will need a kit as it wants to lean out once in a while. The fuel pump is working fine and filled the carburetor shortly after tuning the key on. 

  The front tires are going to need replacing and they both are showing their age and are leaking. I don't find any leaks in the hydraulics and the front PTO seems to work fine. I would from observation say that this Simplicity loader is quite a bit beefier than the Johnson workhorse on the Bolens.

Great feedback Chris!

These are notorious for having the keyways wallow out on the LH spindle. I have had a few where folks just weld the steering arm to the spindle! If that is NOT your cause for loose steering, I would still inspect it closely and keep an eye on it. Its so easy to wreck with the strength of that PS cylinder and a load in the bucket.

I was overjoyed with the loader I had...same one but on an early Legacy. All the capacity you would want for a tractor that size.

Thanks for the information. This loader can pick up a full bucket of pea gravel like nothing. Pretty amazing.

I will have to check the spindles when I can and let you know what I find out.

Thanks again.

Had time to look at the steering yesterday and Talntedmrgreen was right on with his advise. The key way on the left spindle is loose. If the key way itself is worn I will stick the spindle in the milling machine and mill another key way into it and enlarge the first one so there are two holding it. 

Thanks for having me check the spindle!  :thumbs:

Good to hear you have the tool to make it right. I never understood how a heavy tractor like that, with power steering and large front attachments, would have a single key. Even the Sovereigns had 2 keys.

There has been a disturbance in the force. You didn't sell this tractor, did you?

Yes. When we visited you didn't think it would workout for you and I hadn't heard anything different. Did I goof?  :oh_shucks:

If it makes any difference the lady that bought it was very nice and liked it a lot.

I'm glad it went to a good home.

 

This is the latest one I have my eye on:
