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 :)
