Here's another small update.
I got the corner gussets/piston mounts made and tacked in. I have both pistons mocked up awaiting the lines and the bucket. I will be picking up the steel tomorrow for the bucket. Until then enjoy!

Just a suggestion. I think your going to want your bucket to tilt down more while your still working on it. When you have the loader raised you won't be able tilt it far enough to dump it. I am in the process of correcting this fault on my large tractor now and it's turning into a job.

Yes agreed, I will have to get updated pic of what I did for that. The bucket drops much more than this pic shows .I ended up moving the upper mounts to fix that.

Hello all!
It's been a while. Life has it's trials lol.
So here is an update! This is all done minus two back ordered hoses!

That's the manifold I machined for the hydraulic distribution.

Great looking loader!! I do want to ask why you mounted the tilt cylinders so low on the bucket, it would have a lot more tilt leverage and a slower more controlled action on the bucket with them mounted higher from the pivot point.
