Its time to play Everyone LEAST FAVORITE GAME ............. guess that part ! i will post what its for tomorrow once its mounted ! 

Heres the hint It will bolt under the tool box on a bolens Hydro it mounted to the Rear of the tractor One has not been made for the tubeframe series the bore is 1" and it is HEAVY Plate ....

(ps i was Not drunk when i welded that i grabbed 308L ss rod as the tube is ss and i wanted to Try to weld stainless to steel there was alot of porosity from the Zinc So i might re make this "part" and use 7018 and really grind it down ... if you are wondering it was welded Out side in the wind

The Pto I have Stole Cake's (over on Mtf) idea using the pillow block bearings how ever my bearing assembly will be bolted on not welded ... the pipe happens to be from a lawn mower handle I think it should be able to take the torque as the h14lx hydro drive shaft is made out of the same pipe ... if it breaks then i will get one made the pto shaft is some what Junk before is started this (the splines are pretty bad) how ever i plan the cut a keyway and use a 5/8 pulley with set screws to run this now down to the nitty gritty the handle was .7490 the shaft was .7495 (clearance for bearings ) that thing just fit nicely after i tapped it in there with a hammer i tacked the one end so i could press in the other end i will tig weld it once back to school tomorrow it runs quite true for a back yard made unit i would say we are running with in 2-4 thousands 

cheers

 AWSOME JOB !!!

Thanks .. I sure like the Steel lines How ever probably should of got the Actual Hydraulic line instead of using Brake line I have access to a whole bunch of Swage-loc ss line with .045 wall but i can't flare it :( for the Jic fittings so any line i could do in swage loc i did I uno i just like the Look of Steel lines (judging they are correct) And the factor that they Will some what Radiate heat .. also last WAY longer than rubber and they are cheaper ...

Cheers

Ty

 Yup You ain't flarin' them with a standard flaring tool ! You need the one needed for hydraulic tubing , it has rollers that "roll" the flare into the tube against the "die" . And the tool must be held in a rugged vise to do this. I have a few differerent sets, they are very $$$$ .

:l Yes your right .... I am Double flaring them with regular one Iv done it in the past with good results .. I know its not right to use a 45degree one on a 37degree fitting but thats all i currently have to work with Also its not like a 4-5 thousand pound line ... im working with maximum 500 i do plan to buy a Ridgid 377 but the budget is to small for one now The funny thing is one of the Factory hydraulic lines Appears to of been flared with a 45degree double flare tool ...
