Daniel, By a tank liner kit do you mean the stuff you pour into the tank that coats the inside and dries hard?

Daniel, are you trying to scare the green machines next door again? You keep bringing home tractors like that, your BIL will have a hard time keeping up with the "brown spots" in his yard when his tractors see them...


Aint scerd! Only brown spots in the yard is crapgrass :bigrofl:

Yep, I use "Kreem" tank liner.

Truth is, Fred runs & grabs a roll of toilet paper when he sees me driving the Allis to his place!:bigrofl:
Naw, Fred has nothing to fear with his 430 JD's. Both are powerhouses, and so is the Allis 620. So, with "hooking" a pair of heavy powerful tractors for a pull-off, I think there is nothing to be gained, and a lot to lose! I am content without a pull-off, and I'd say Fred is too.:smile1:

I like your taste in GT's. I've never seen one so have no perspective of size, but that has since changed. That thing is huge. Nice video.

Daniel,I was on tractordata today and looked up the AC620. It was listed under farm tractors and they list it's weight at 1500lbs. One other feature I really like on those is the 3 speed hydro. Very versatile!

The manual states the weight at 1300lbs, so not sure why tractordata says 1500. Wish I had an easy way to weigh it. The 3spd rear is great. 3rd for general coming/going, 2nd is great for plowing, and 1st mostly for tilling, or blowing snow.

Nice job on the tractor Daniel.
Just for future information this is the alternator that I installed on my Kubota Bolens this summer and it has been working great. A used alternator is probably less expensive but trying to find one isn't always easy.

"DBElectrical is your source for Starters, Alternators & More."
Single wire hook up. Was $69.00 this spring.
These people are easy to work with and have a store on flea-bay.

Using a automotive alternator opens up a lot of possibilities , you could add a good size inverter to have 120v a/c , it would charge batteries pretty well I bet too . Al

The alternator I bought looked small, but actually was larger than the one on my JB tractor (still smaller than normal), and just a bit too large for the 620. But the JB has room for the slightly larger new alternator, so I will be swapping the little one to use on my Allis 620 & fitting this last purchased alternator to the Bush Hog JB.

Got some shop time in with the 620 this morning. Got the hydraulic remotes out front back into proper place with all clipped down tight. The lines had to be tweaked a tiny bit to align everything. The alternator is mounted, but still have to finish the adjustment arm. Have some new wiring to do to get this alternator wired up.
Going into town later today to get some 620 supplies.

No belt to be found today to fit this alternator setup, so ordered one from local parts house and will be here Tuesday. It's just 3/8 x 15". To have safer wiring, instead of running all the charge to the dash ammeter, then all the way back to the battery, I am wiring direct to the battery & swapping the ammeter to a volt meter. I am also adding a small LED idiot light for the alternator to know instantly if all is working right.

I also found the front axle beam must be dropped for a good welding. She's cracked up pretty good on the right side. Cracks run almost 1/2 way down front & back sides. Plus it is cracked beside the OE weld toward the right spindle.

Sounds like you are going through that tractor from top to bottom. Good find on the crack, better to find and fix than break and crash. When you get done she will be as good as new, nah, probably better than new:thumbs:

I did the same thing with the volt meter. I always check to see if the voltage is climbing back to 14 volts right after starting. Love the alternators. No shortage of juice.
Like Michiganmobileman said, good catch on the axle. That could have been a real eye opener when it let go.
