Went to The Parker Store hydraulic store today. Got the 2 hoses cut short & correct fittings fitted. Then gave him a list of fittings I would need, along with used examples. Well, he flew from rack to rack, and gathered them all up. He had to use 2 in some to form 90 degree, but that's ok. I didn't look real close at them, as I did give him used parts for sizes. You know where this is going......was in a hurry to get home, and din't look close till I got to the shop. A few of the fittings were the wrong size. Hard to tell at a glance as they were so close. Long story short....no power steering tonight!:mecry:
Called back & told him the problem, and he didn't have the proper fittings in stock anyway, so they are ordered. Be in tomorrow, but I'll be at a dairy meeting, and I have to RUSH home from it Wednesday noon to load out a semi with corn. I'll get the fittings before the weekend for sure though, so power steering will be in operation on Saturday for SURE! ...... I hope!:D

Power steering all installed & working! Seems like the charge pressure is a bit low, but I'll address that later. Will be changing hydro & diff later, so not going to worry with this unit. Steering still works, but not a one finger affair unless at full rpm's, then 2 finger.
I've switched off to the 3pt lift. I didn't get any lift arms with this tractor, nor the lift link arms, so had to fab the links, and my friend Cecil had some old lift arms in his junk pile. The lift arms were straight & weren't wide enough at full swing to hook to any of my equipment, so had to add a dog-leg to the end, similar to how most cat 0 arms are anyway. First pic of the straight arms.

After adding the "dog-leg".

Had to have an adjustment on one of the lift links, so found an old corn planter marker arm adjustment system. Had to heat a lot to get the threads loosened, then cut the rod to length, welded top to a swivel ball, the lower to a bracket already in the pile of old machinery parts.

Raining cats & dogs here, but heading back to the shop to dog-leg the other lift arm. I may end up having to shorten the arms if I add rear pto due to implement shaft length, but that can be dealt with later. Will work most of the day on this, then take the wife out for supper. May drop into TSC for a few small items too.

Well....kind of. I have my list for TSC ya know! :laughingteeth: But she's not the type I have to entertain, so that makes me wanna do things for her. I asked her this morning what she wanted to do, and she told me it was my day off, and for me to get all the shop time I needed! Now that's a great wife! :thumbs:

Three point is totally functional now. Just need to pick up new pins for the pivot points.



Here is another short clip of the power steering working.

Doug, glad you joined up. As to being too deep, you start in the shallow end of the pool & work your way to the deep end. Sometimes I need a life preserver myself! LOL
