Is it possible to add a third hydraulic unit to a 1566 ih? It's got two and I need a third for my beet digger. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks

Yup you can . You will have to drill a couple of holes, for the fittings to go through the side support for the seat. Or if you can get one use a power beyond plate. Then you can put a hydraulic valve block on a fender for more circuits.

You're not tieing into anything. caterpillar guy's first recommendation is for an actual THIRD valve.

I've heard that you can cram a third factory valve in under the seat, but like caterpillar guy said, you have to drill holes for the lines.

The other option is a "power beyond" plate and an aftermarket valve mounted on the fender. With the power beyond plate you will need to buy another "middle" factory valve body, and throw away the factory "end" valve body.

Either way you need another "middle" valve body, so the less expensive option may be to try and cram all three in under the seat.

Here is what I did on my 1486. You can buy a valve that plugs into one outlet and make two out of one. It has a 12 volt toggle switch mounted in the cab to change direction of the double valve. A lot simpler than trying to add extra valves on your tractor.
