Now it’s time to mount the hydraulic pump.
I would like to mount the hydraulic pump at the side of the tractor, but I could not find any space for it, so I had to mount it in the front below the hood.
This picture shows the v-belt pulley with electric clutch in the front I will use to drive the hydraulic pump.
This is the original PTO which has inspired me to the design of the base I will build for the hydraulic pump.
These two pictures show the two big holes and the two holes in the triangles, I will use to for mounting the base for the hydraulic pump.
The hydraulic pump is not intended for sideways forces, so I have bought an attachment bearing, where the hydraulic pump will be mounted onto. To drive the hydraulic pump I have bought a v-belt pulley which will be mounted to the shaft of the attachment bearing with a taper Lock.
These pictures show the iron parts I have cut out for the hydraulic pump base. The two upper bushings go into the big holes in the frame of the tractor and the other two will be welded to the side of the hydraulic pump base.
I have welded two nuts on the inside because there is very little space inside the frame to work with a wrench.
All welded together.
Here is everything mounted on the base.
Now it’s time to see if it will fit inside the frame of the tractor.
It fits all right and only need to be painted.
The next will be to mount everything back on the tractor and the do the hydraulic plumbing, but I am still waiting for hydraulic pipes, hoses and some fittings I have ordered.
