MOTORS AND PARTS
Most of the time I have 4x2, 6x4 ( gas and diesel ), 622, and 626 motors on the shelf, ready
to ship. I can also do Turf Gator and Bunker Rake motors if I have your old motor for needed bolt-on parts. The most
popular rebuilt motor and the one I do the most of is the 6X4 FD620D. I have 6X4 motors built with NEW short blocks
and motors that can be cleaned up and rebuilt within specs with stock bore ( I won't go over .004" piston/cylinder
wall clearance, where Deere says .0067" is ok. All rebores are .002" or less.) I can bore motors .010"
or .020" depending on wear ( only +.020" pistons are available for the FD620D 6X4 motor ). All oversized rebuilds
are done with a boring bar for exact tolerance. Only OEM parts are used in rebuilds. All rebuilds have the block deck and
head surfaces milled and the heads are ported to match valve seats to head castings, valves are checked
for pitting, replaced as necessary, and lapped, valve stems are resurfaced as needed. Water pump is checked and usually rebuilt,
and carb cleaned with parts replaced as needed. Most carbs need new needles. All four valve lifter/push rod sets are
measured and matched to within .002". Crankshafts and/or camshafts are shimmed to end play tolerance and, if needed,
cases and/or case covers are rebushed for cam bearings. Cam and crank gears are checked for backlash while in the case with
a dial indicator ( max .005" ) If .005" can't be attained, cam and/or crank gear are replaced. Crank bearing
surfaces are cleaned and polished. Starter brushes are checked for wear and replaced if needed, starter drive and solenoid
are tested. Block, heads, intake manifold and water pump are leak/pressure tested as a complete assembled unit. Governor
and carb adjustments are made to specs. Valves are adjusted before and during testing. All rebuilt motors are extensively
bench tested. Motors are run through heat up/cool down cycles for one to two hours, after which they are removed,
drained and shrink wrapped. All that's required to make the motor operational in your Gator is an air cleaner, muffler and
clutch. The carburetor is set to install your cables. Throttle cable may need adjusting due to throttle spring change. Do
not change carb adjustments. A complete core ( carb, starter, linkage, etc. ) is required with all motor sales ( blown
up or not ) If you have an unusable core or no core an extra fee will be charged. If you need a FE290D rebuilt motor and don't
have a rebuildable core I can't build one because I have no cores. Warranty on rebuilds is six months from day of receipt
for all long block items ( internal motor parts, heads, valves plus carb and intake ) and ninety days for bolt ons ( pressure/temp
sensors, water pump and starter ) Motors are shipped via UPS in a box designed for reuse to ship the core back, return freight
to be paid by buyer. New motor is shipped to buyer freight free. I also have new short blocks w/crank, rods, pistons, cam,
governor and oil pump. I also can build and test motors with AS-11 carb linkage. ( Below Gator serial number
14949 and engine serial number before 68250 ) Although all rebuilt motors are within tolerance, there will be a normal amount
of noise in them caused by the cam/crankshaft gears. Older motors had fiber cam gears to reduce this noise, but they are no
longer used because they frequently broke. Other items are transaxles, clutches, steering parts, internal engine
parts, beds, wheels, tires, radiators, mufflers, rear hub assemblies, 6X4 bare frames, cables and linkage, wiring, and much
more! I also have rebuilt water pumps for the FD620D and 6X4 fuel pumps. I am NOT affiliated with John Deere,
but I DO LIKE THEIR GATORS. This is a retired guy one man operation and I don't get things
done as fast I used to, so it's best to expect a slower pace from this end. I do all my own work ( except
machining ) so there's no one else to blame.
I can ship parts via UPS and USPS to any location
in the USA. I can also arrange shipping for larger items ( frames, cargo boxes, complete Gators ) thru Freightcenter.com
on a per item basis. If you are a university, hospital, municipality or other like entity, you may contact me regarding
payment. All others, I accept four methods of payment, and only
four. Cash, a U.S. Postal Money Order, a Cashier's Check drawn on a domestic
US bank, or a Bank Wire Transfer ( for larger, more expensive items ) If you cannot, or will not, pay with one
of these methods, please don't inquire.( no exceptions ) NO CREDIT CARDS OR PERSONAL CHECKS Payment must be received before shipment is
made. I do not ship outside the USA.
If you have a specific problem with your Gator, I would recommend tractorpoint.com. Go to Forum Index
at the right center of their home page and scroll through until you find Utility ATV John Deere Gator, click on that and look
for your problem. Most any issue you could have is discussed in that forum.
