Got the loader off tonight...now I'll be starting on whipping it back into shape.
It worked good. ..just gonna fix a few seeping seals..probably some weak/cracked welds around three Pivot points/bracket (I haven't checked it over really closely yet).
There's several ugly coats of paint...etc.
The bucket isn't too bad...it's got some mud/dirt stuck in it & the top of the extension bucket is a bit bent up...but I can heat and/or beat that back into submission rather easily.
I might even make up my own heavier duty bucket and weld it up and add it to the arsenal as well.
I'm also planning on adding Some removable forklift style forKs to one of the bucket setups too...those would be handy. .I think!
Perhaps you should start a thread on your loader installation.
