No. I only use a metal band saw, a grinding machine with cutting dish and hand file.

My pump on my Massey with FEL was off a Case 446 and not designed for  real side load either, but I run a standard pulley directly on the pump shaft and it's been working for years.  I run a 5/8" wide belt but do not have it tight at all, just half snug.  Doesn't slip, and not a high side load.

Once again everything looks awesome Per! :thumbs: Do you have a picture of the Grinding machine with cutting disk? What ever it is you have done a great job cutting out all those pieces for this project! :worshippy1: Also you must have a lot of files :D

 

Hi Chris

My grinding machine is not very special at all.

I use the very thin cutting disc a lot. Iron becomes like butter. They are only 1 mm thick. The last picture show a thin and a normal cutting disc.

Excellent craftsmanship!! Especially considering the amount of handwork involved. A dying art, I'm afraid.  I congratulate you on your work... I don't know if you've been asked, but do you do work in metal fabrication or machine shop for your regular job?

Like the rest of the build... VERY professional. Nice to see quality work without using high dollar equipment.

 

One question; how do you know tha thte pump isn't intended for side loading? Or is it standard for them NOT to be designed for sideloading. I ask because now I'm in the design phase and the pump I bought does not specify what type of drive should be used. Thanks!

 

Yeah from where do I know that.

I can't say. I think I have learned it, when I was young and beautiful (now I am only beautiful   :bigrofl: ) during my school, but I know that a hydraulic pump, which is designed for sideload has bearing built in. The bearings are often needle bearings.

As far as I know it is standard NOT to be designed for sideload.

That is (like Utah Smitty said) true Craftsmanship! When you said a grinding machine with a cutting disk, I was thinking maybe you had a Vertical or Horizontal Milling machine. I never imagined you would say it was an angle grinder!! Great job! :worshippy1: :thumbs:

Today I have made a spring loaded v-belt tensioner. Maybe it is not necessary, but now it's done.

 

IMG_0671.JPG

 

I have used the original v-belt tensioner.

 

IMG_0675.JPG IMG_0677.JPG

 

This is the parts for the v-belt tensioner. The spring I have used was one I had lying around.

 

IMG_0678.JPG IMG_0680.JPG

 

Modified v-belt tensioner.

 

IMG_0681.JPG IMG_0682.JPG

 

This is how it looks. It is only mounted for demonstration.

 

I am still waiting for hydraulik pipes and hoses to arrive. I hope they will arrive next week.

Until then - have a nice week-end.

Hi again.

I ordered the hydraulic part for the FEL from a German company. The hydraulic parts are about 5 times cheaper in Germany than in Denmark. I paid the parts by Pay Pal, but the parts were never send from the company. I wrote back and forth with the company a lot but nothing happened. Then I got some help from jd. rasentrac and got all my money back.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH jd. rasentrac! :thank_you:

 

So I then ordered the hydraulic parts from another German company and here there where no problems. Finally I have received the hydraulic parts and I could continue with the project.

 

IMG_0725.JPG

 

The hydraulic pump is here mounted in the front with suction and pressure hoses.

 

IMG_0726.JPG

 

This is the oil suction hose going from the left tower to the pump. The hydraulic oil is sucked out through a strainer, which is mounted inside the Tower.

 

IMG_0727.JPG

 

Pressure hose going from the pump to the manoeuvring valve block.

 

IMG_0729.JPG

 

Here I have made a small bracket for mounting the return oil filter.

 

IMG_0730.JPG IMG_0732.JPG IMG_0731.JPG

 

The pictures shows the oil return filter when it is mounted with a pipe going from the manoeuvring valve block to the return filter and a hose from the return oil filter to the right tower. Underneath the tractor there is going a cross over hose from the right tower to the left tower.

 

IMG_0728.JPG

 

Here I am bending the hydraulic pipes, which will feed the cylinders with the hydraulic oil.

 

IMG_0733.JPG

 

Here you see some of the hydraulic pipes on the boom.

 

IMG_0734.JPG IMG_0735.JPG

 

The pictures shows a pipe from the one end of the cylinder to the other end. I use pipes instead of hoses, because I think it looks much nicer and elegant than hoses.

 

This is all for now. The project is getting closer and closer to the end.
