I have a chance to trade one of my GT's for a rough Allis 716H and have some questions.

 

The engine had a busted rod and a used one was swapped in.  Not sure I trust it.  Has anyone repowered with a horizontal Briggs opposed twin.  I have a nice one I could use for the purpose.  

 

With the sunstrands hydro units used in cub cadets you need to have a ported pump to have hydraulics.   What is the setup with this 716.  I'm expecting to hear if the tractor does not have it its not worth adding.

 

I'm having trouble figuring out the difference between the 700 and 900 tractors.   Are the 900s better tractors and if so are the 700s worth messing with.

 

As you can tell I'm not over anxious to make this trade but want to be sure I'm not passing up a decent GT.  Either way I could use the education :)

The one in the picture is a 416, and it should have a Vickers pump and drive. If it's anything like my uncles 314 it does not have  hydraulic lift capabilities, if it's not a manual lift then it is probably a electric lift.

My bad, had a brain fart.   Glad that never happened before.

So just read 716 as 416 in my original post.

 

Thanks.

No hydraulic pressure ports as said.  I had a 416 and it was a good tractor.  The Vickers often developed weeping oil leaks at the swash plate shafts, but not too terrible.  Swapping engines to a Briggs may be difficult.  The flywheel adapter won't fit the Briggs, and likely the PTO clutch won't work with the Briggs either.  Plus the crankshaft height from bottom of oil pan has to be the same or extremely close due to the flex plate design of the driveshaft.

So we're talking about a 416H then? It would require cutting the frame sides for a horizontal twin. Not sure on a v-twin.

Thanks everyone for the info.    I like the tractor but I think I'm going to pass.
