Alright, I am merely making this thread to get all my ducks in a row. I have been thinking about putting  a form of... semi "stock" hydraulics on the 68 super. I was thinking of mounting the pump between the grill and the engine, moving the battery under the seat and putting a fluid tank where the battery would go. Now, the main question is if this pump that I have can be separated from its tank. I got it from my grandfather a few years ago with this very intention. I think its a Chrysler... or a ford... or something. Not really sure. I in tend on putting the valves (I think 2 would be good...) right on the dash.

 

Any thoughts?

Any of the GM, Ford, or Chrysler pumps will work. GM has the better pump and I believe Chrysler is using that one now. To use the one that you have, you have to graft an addition to the side to increase the oil capacity. For one or two GT implement lift cylinders, something about the size of a soup can will work. A lot of the newer vehicles have pumps with a remote reservoir which makes life a lot easier. You have to seal the top of the one you have to add a remote reservoir.

 

The GM pump will flow about 2 gpm at 1250 - 1450 psi.

 

You will need the adapter at the bottom of this page for the pressure line from a GM pump. I dn on't know if the same fitting will work for a Ford.

Now I have another question. I acquired a western plow hydro pump. I am suspecting that I could modify the suction/screen to take a hose and I can make a sort of bolt on block to the back for the pressure side. but my question is if it can take the side pulling stresses and out of the resovoir use I intend to do with it.

I'm going to say the pump was designed for shaft drive. If so, I would think it would wear fast.

Do you think I could find a pillow block or something to run the shaft through?

That should do the trick.

Might be cheaper in the long run, and probably work better to get a new/used pump made for what you want to do.

The links below are two places that sell pumps and accessories, but first you need to know what your plans are as far as what you plan to run with the hydraulics. My SS14 with a loader uses a very small pump mounted on the right side, driven by motor pulley (see below).
