Yes Casey, tin fits. I had to trim about 1/4" for the hose to the

left of the battery, but the battery cover will hide that.

Thanks Alan.

Trial could be a week and a half or so.

I'm waiting for an inline hydraulic filter, so I'm going to tear

all this fabrication off, paint it, and reassemble in the mean time.

Very tidy job Will, I don't think you could have squeezed anything else in. The effort is paying off, it will take a keen eye to spot that this is A Massey 'Special' and non standard.

Will, I am super impressed by the way you've managed this.  Excellent job.  Of course everyone will want video once you finish.

Will, Boy that really looks good. You have done a very nice job fitting everything in there and hiding it all.

I took it apart today. I didn't realize how many pieces I'd made to add

the hydraulics.

They're primed now, and mostly painted.

 

One thing that occurred to me today, is that there might be an issue

with the hydraulics being too fast. I may have to add a speed control.

But where?

Yes, that is what I meant to say.

They are a fair size.

You could just use a fitting with a small through hole, wont be adjustable like the one you show but will it restrict flow.

I'm not sure what you mean here?
