Allis Chalmers G - Electric Conversion

We've got a model G that we are converting to a battery powered system, 48 volts, w/ six 8 volt batteries (see electric G conversion @ flyingbeet.com) and will be looking to sell the engine (and related parts), but my question refers to the absence of any hydraulic pump on the tractor now. the implements are all hand operated, and I would like to install a proper hydraulic system without the combustion engine to run it. any ideas where to start? I manage a 5 acre therapeutic and production garden for the village at Camphill Village in Copake, NY where we live and work with developmentally disabled adults; our community includes roughly 220 people who we grow fresh and storage vegetables for, plus a small number from outside the village who partake in our CSA (community supported agriculture program - they pay up front in the spring for a full seasons worth of produce, regardless of how well or poorly our season goes.)

There is a great site on electric conversions for a G. The idea of using an electric/ hydraulic power pack is a good one.

Peter, a fairly efficient (low resistance and transmission losses) 48 volt Golf Cart will move a couple dudes and golf clubs on an easy to move blacktop track a fairly long time butttttttttttttt if you intend to put that on a tractor and actually put cultivator shovels down into the ground HOW LONG YOU FIGURE IT WILL WORK BEFORE THE CHARGE IS DEPLETED

Towmotors work well with 36-48 volt sytems, and their lead/acid batteries hold up well. They are slow to recharge, however, and a rather elaborate battery changing system is required. A diesel repower would be less expensive and more cost efficient in the long run. Actually, overhauling the N62 and running it on propane would be a better idea. Maybe down the road battery tech will advance, and this will be the way to go.

Why not install a 12 volt electric hydraulic pump?

I used one of those on my one ton GMC dump truck, it worked fine,and not ever failed to dump what I put into the 2 plus cu./yd. box

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
