Allis 720 fuel pump conversion

Recommended Posts

A belated Merry Christmas to the Club Members and a Happy "Hunting" New Year. I have an Allis 720, and after it sits for a while it is very hard to get started. It seems that it has no gas in carb,as I squirt some in and away it goes. I am planning on converting to an electric fuel pump and shut off valve. Will this help? Where do I find an electric fuel pump and what size is required? Do I remove the old fuel pump and plate off the hole or just leave the old one there. Any help or other info regarding this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The electric fuel pump I put on my 4040 is a puralator #pro 452, bought at the local NAPA store. Seems spec were like 1.5-3 psi, don't recall for sure though. It works great, my oem pump leaked gas into the oil, I just capped off the fittings with rubber plugs and left it in place. Don't see any need for a fuel shutoff valve.

Just so you know there is a complete thread on all the pro's and con's of changing these pumps in the club's Technical forum. But you'll need to be a paid member to access this section.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct
