The AC 650 proved itself to be a stout reliable machine. Other pro's great for utility, beefy racks,ground clearance and simplicity front diff locker

Cons: not fast compared to the competitions 650-700 class machines suspension is a little stiff.

Also are noted for having weak bevel gears( go easy in reverse). Some of the early models had crappy oil pump drive gears , but there was an updated gear available. If it has lasted this long your golden.

I forgot about the oil pump issue. Good call, it was never an issue or was replaced in the last 12-13 years. The bevel gears were an issue for some, Most of those people had giant tires and heavy thumbs! The old gears were quieter than the replacement, straight cut gears that came later.
