The Gator Guy
Specializing in Motor building for rectangular headlight john deere gators and AMTs since 2002 email firstname.lastname@example.orgT
Since I can't keep up with the demand, the motors in the picture are gone and I have a list going of motors to build. I do have cores in stock and can build a motor in a short time. I can also do Turf Gator and Bunker Rake motors if I have your old motor for needed bolt-on parts. I do not do any newer round headlight "T" series motors. The most popular rebuilt motor and the one I do the most of is the 6X4 FD620D. Since the 6x4 motor has been out so long almost all have to be bored. I pre check all cylinders with a dial bore gauge. If there is .001 or less deflection in the gauge I will build it with stock pistons.I can bore motors .010"or .020" depending on wear ( +.020 is the only over size piston available for the FD620D, a +.010 piston is available for the FE290D). A 1 mm (.040") oversized piston is now available for the FD620D motor. Inquire. I can also re-sleeve both size motors back to stock bore. All oversized rebuilds are done with a boring bar for exact tolerance and have .002 piston clearance. Only OEM parts are used in rebuilds. .040" pistons are made by a well known piston manufacturer. All rebuilds have the block deck and head surfaces milled and the heads are ported to match valve seats to head castings. As these motors age, valves and valve seats are becoming a major part of a good final product. Most valve seats are pitted and need to be ground and alot of the valve faces are deteriorated to the point of replacement. After seats are ground, valves are lapped with two different grit compounds to facilitate a tight fit. This process takes time, but is very important to the final product. Water pump is checked and usually rebuilt, and carb cleaned with parts replaced as needed. Most carbs need new needles. Crankshafts and/or camshafts are shimmed to end play tolerance and, if needed, cases and/or case covers are rebushed for cam bearings. Although the Deere tech manual says max wear limit on a cam bore is .633" I won't go past .631" because the larger bore will rattle. Also I won't use a valve lifter with over .0005" wear. 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. I will not rebuild a FE290 motor without a good core. Warranty on rebuilds is 90 days from day of receipt. Gas motors are shipped via UPS in a box designed for reuse to ship the core back. Diesel motors have to go via motor freight on a pallet due to weight. New motor will come to you freight free. Buyer is responsible for core return freight. 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 coupled with normal wear. Older cam gears used to reduce noise are no longer used due to breakage. 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. Plus I am a Grandfather before I am a Gator guy so I don't work every day or some days not all day. I do all my own work ( except machining ) so there's no one else to blame. I have been on page one of google.com for many years for used parts and rebuilt motors and have an excellent customer relations record.

I do not ship outside the USA. If you are in Canada I can ship to one of the border stations for your pickup. I HAVE BRAND NEW UNUSED AMT 600 IGNITOR/COILS. Direct replacement for John Deere R91234 and Kawasaki 21119-2071 LIMITED SUPPLY CALL OR EMAIL CURRENTLY BUYING COMPLETE OR NEARLY COMPLETE AMT-600 KF-82 MOTORS, WHAT DO YOU HAVE? 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.
NEW ITEM!!!!! NEW ITEM!!!!! Has there been a time or two in the past when you didn't think you were going to get your 5 wheeler stopped? Or do you have to aim it somewhere where there isn't anything to hit? Or maybe you would like to feel safer with the wife or the younger generation on it.After months of trial and error a complete hydraulic brake system is now available for the 600/622/626. Very few moving parts to go bad with a proven system. This system retains the parking brake and has OEM parts that retain the floating provision. The custom machined caliper plates mount in the same holes as the originals with the same mounting bolts. All machined parts are powder coated for lasting protection. 622/626 kit contains an extensively modified brake pedal assembly with Wilwood master cylinder and mounts in the same position with no drilling. 600 kit has a new Wilwood handlebar master cylinder with a parking brake provision. Easy to form nickel/copper brake line is used for ease of installation. Kit comes with complete instructions, pictures and some parts already assembled. Installation takes two to three hours and is not difficult. Good reports coming in as to quality, ease of installation and durability. Check out pictures below.....
