Just finished this live hydraulics conversion for a customer who also wanted a small single spool Prince valve and two quarter inch remotes for "little" jobs. At 2.5 GPM it ain't going to run a loader but it should handle the customer's top link just fine. As I was looking at it I'm thinking it would easily handle a snow plow. Or a two spool valve and a couple small cylinders on the lift arms could turn a back blade into a very nice terracing/ditching setup.

TOH

a t2.5gpm.. it's almost like the N internal pump.. which many ran loaders off of. :)

no speed demon.. but better than a wheel barrow!

looks nice. as usual for your creations...

The remotes are just an add-on to my standard belt drive live hydraulics conversion that uses the tractor sump. I didn't have the suction line hooked up when I took these pictures but it connects to the 2" drain in the OEM belly pump using a custom made adapter. The adapter is just a bushing that replaces the drain plug and turns the drain into a #12 SAE o-ring hydraulic port capable of accepting any standard SAE hydraulic fitting.

Yeah but I can do a lot better than 2.5 GPM. The one on the assembly line right behind this one is 10+ GPM and has a two spool valve and 4 outlets. Will look almost identical - just bigger hoses and outlets and more of them.

The engineering departments have done some real nice stuff.

Maybe I could interest you in one of these to replace that Gawd Awful vane pump on your Jubilee Wink

I like to tinker. My mother started putting all of the clocks in our house up out of my reach about the time I started walking Wink

Very nice work TOH.
I assume this setup also gives the tractor live hydraulics? Live hyds is the biggest drawback on the N Series Fords and this would correct that.
One thought about your setup:
Maybe future installs could incorporate hard piping from the front to the rear?
Later Fords did a pretty good job with tucking the lines along the side of the chassis.
More work I know but the finished product would be much less Medusa-esque.

What he said.

I'd like to convert my working girl to live hydraulics but the snake pit of loose rubber hoses has kept that project on hold until I could figure out a way to hard pipe it.

C'mon Dan, I know you can do it - How hard can it be for a pro like you!? Very Happy
