Got the cylinder yesterday. Looks to be a 2" bore. 11 3/4" closed length. 3/4" pin hole on base. 7/16" hole on clevis end. I'll see about getting the fuel tank installed and see what space is left to install under there. Valve looks very similar to the one I already have.

Got things together today! Figured out where I could mount the valve. Going to be tight with the hoses, but it's handy!

That worked out really well. No fuss with the linkage and you have the lever right beside you where it's easy to use.

I just hope I can run the hoses okay. the cylinder hoses will go thru the hole just to the lower right in pic #2. The pressure/return will go under the frame and back to the front.

Tire pics are in the refurb thread, Casey! But here's one just for you:

This also shows what space I have to work with back there now. I gained about 3/4" per side in width, plus the 1" height under the fuel tank. Hope I can mount the cylinder in there.

Greg, I'll use yours on the 3-point. The other has different fittings, may have to change them around for the cylinder. I think the flare type would be better, easier to get the twist out of the hoses.

That's your valve in there, Greg. That is where I wanted it for the 3-point, close and the normal direction I turn to look at what I'm doing back there. The one that came with the cylinder is a match to it, though. Not sure where I can put it yet and don't have a cylinder for anything else.

Plenty room for the hoses to pass. I'd suggest jic #4 fittings & 1/4" hose. Plenty flow for the cylinder & hoses easier to deal with.

I doubt that, Casey!

What's a JIC #4 fitting look like, Daniel? Something similar to this:

If so, that is what I would like to use. The cylinder and valve I bought online has an inverted flare fitting. Have to turn the hose to screw these in. Yuk!
Image005.jpg
Pic didn't come out so hot, but you get the idea, I hope!
I got a few things mocked up. Need some input on it all. I have lots of questions going on. Just want to know if this can be made to work.

I think it looks like it should work! I was looking at my brothers Kubota the other day and see it only has 1/4 inch lines on its loader. Isnt there a swivel adapter for those inverted flare ends someone? I am not real familiar with hydraulic terminology but I would call that a 3/8 flare fitting on the valve Kenny, but again not sure in Hyd term.
