I'm not sure what you mean here?

Rather than adding a flow restrictor into your set-up change an existing fitting somewhere between the valve block and Ram for one with only a tiny bore, or make an insert to press fit/weld inside a fitting that partially blocks the flow of oil.

Ok, thanks for the explanation. It wouldn't be readily accessible, but I

think I can squeeze one (as above) in on the rod end of the cylinder.

That hose could just loop further forward, without causing any other

issues. I'll try it first, and then decide.

What they are referring to is a hydraulic flow restrictor orifice.

Again, not adjustable but small and inline. Plus if you don't like the speed you can change to a different size.

Thanks for that link. I called the hydraulic shop in town, to see if he had a 1/4" adjustable flow

control. Nope. I just wanted dimensions at this point. He explained to me, how he's done

basically the same thing as the guys on TBN talk about. Well, I've got options now.

I'm thinking I might like to add a brake light to this one.

Any ideas/suggestions on how I could go about that?

Oh, look at that. That'll do it, but it just seems so simple of a solution.

I could easily have amused myself for a full day, doing it with the crazy idea

I had upstairs.

Thanks Alan.

Is this to let that "tailgating" moose know your stopping? If it's a bull moose, he may just plow into to you.

I plan on bringing this Exec to plow days. After going to that one in Pa. in mid Nov. and

seeing Alan drive, I thought a brake light might be a good idea. :D

I think that having a brake lite for the Sears and a horn for the John Deeres would be a good idea. :rolling:

Good come back Alan. I was also thinking about adding a windshield

washer pump kit, aimed out back, just in case you doze off. Isn't there

a pic out there to that effect. :smilewink:  One just never  knows, so be prepared, is best policy.
