720 repower and restore

Recommended Posts

s_stephen

a few months ago i purchased a 420 john deere for $600 with a running honda gx670 and bad hydro. after parting out the jd on ebay i sold all but the engine and power steering and got $700 out of it after ebay fees. I am now installing the honda into my allis 720 and going to put on power steering as well as restore the tractor while it is tore down. I sold the running onan a few weeks ago for $400 so now im down to no cost in the 720.20170718_170557.thumb.jpg.635f5e4ad392ee5d8bcb935c52dab449.jpg

Progress! Knowing the work you've done in the past I can't wait to see & drive it.  

I have to get it done befor snow flies because this is the blower tractor.
