joiner:welcometogttalk:glad to have you with us.

In most cases,they have a separate pump,as the existing one is not capable of running a loader and the hydrostatic rear end at the same time.

Great response lads. Thanks very much.

I am struggling at the moment to get the ram under the seat to work. What a nightmare!!;
I have fabricated a snowplough etc, using dimensions found on another site. But I can`t get the ram to work to use the connecting rods ( still to be made ). I don`t know if it is a pump fault ( blocked filter ) or if it is the spool block which is kaput. Basically the ram only moves a very small amount before it seems to go solid. I have switched the pipes to use the other spool for the auxilray hydraulics but that doesn`t seem to be much better. The ram does move OK with the pipes off.

The trouble here is that everyone who knows about hydraulics seems to be on holiday until the 5th of January. The big snow is supposed to be coming here on the 12th, and I want to hopefully raise some money with the tractor because there is no hope of doing my usual work.

Any help would be absolutely fantastic and very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Here's what I would check first, enough fluid ? Is the pump shaft turning under load , I've sheared keys and the pulley would spin the pump until you tried to build hyd pressure. (Also had a roll pin on a gear pump shear inside the pump )If that's OK , then find the pressure line coming from the pump sometimes you can feel the line move or flex when it's building pressure . Hope that gives you some ideas to start with.

Fixed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to see my nephew today, who lives about an hour away. He has a business building hydraulic stuff for the oil industry.

After looking, thinking, removeing, pressure testing,,,,,cursing,,,,,,, it eventually came down to something so simple........ Some balloon had put the flow and return pipes on the wrong way round at the pump!!!

Now I can get my snowplough setup finished and any future ideas for using this ram can now be contemplated.

Found a website yesterday offering plans for front end loaders. Still thinking if worth the money, or maybe just as well to think it all out in my own head.

Will post some photos when all the bits are painted and looking good.

Thanks.

Thanks lads.

Next question??

How do I get the front PTO shaft to work. I know that the belts are missing which connect the actual PTO shaft pulley to the other double pulley. This pulley does not turn when you engage the handle back on the dash. Is this normal or is there another drive assembly to engage before this pulley turns. Looking from the front does the PTO shaft turn clock, or anticlock wise. These are all things leading up to the loader build project ( dream! ).

Thanks.

If you don't have this manual already, you should download it. Its the service manual for the Large Frame series Bolens

Thanks, but I can`t download it today because I have been there already. I will try tomorrow.

The brochure/manual section is very good and much help to an igoranance like myself.

Just had a look at the rubber Tyre chain thread. Seems a good idea. Could be easier to make than conventional chains if I can find enough conveyor belt. I can`t see anyone in the UK selling chains to fit 26 x 12 tyres.

I might need to start finding out the cost of shipping from the States to Scotland for items I might need/want in the future.

There is a total of three triple belt pulleys that run the pto.First is on the motor other is the idlear and third is the main pulley on the pto shaft.When you raise the pto handle on the dash it pushes the idlear pulley over onto the belts and tightens them up on the motor and pto pulley.
