John deere 620
Hi, I am working on my JD 620 that has been sitting for 6yrs. I removed the fuel tank to clean rust out and found that the top and sides of the tank are completely rotted out. Anyone know what JD model fuel tanks fit on the JD 620? I'm having issues finding a tank for it.



thanks

How did you fix it?
BTW, Steiner Tractor has a lot of old Ford tanks very reasonable.... about $250, Looking at my JD530, there are a number of ways a slightly smaller tank could fit the space under the cowling, work fine, and look stock.
I'd sure love to find an OEM new one...even though the old one seems OK.
We are lucky in that old iron doesn't rust in our dry climate.
The old JD530 has a wide front, PS, extra remotes, 3pt, & FEL. It still looks good and runs fine. But I'm old and getting close to time to find a new owner. I just don't use it anymore with the new handy Kubota to do the chores.

Fixed it with fiberglass and resin. Still need to coat the inside of it
