Awfully hard to find but a some guys have them fabricated.  Super handy when Dad had this years ago.  He left it on all the time by drilling a hole in the center lip so he could pull trailers with it in addition to its other functions.

The Battery is TOTALLY dead.  So far gone the engine will die if take it off the battery charger.  Soooo....anyone using a car battery in their 1650 for the extra starting power?  

 

From my measurements a certain one will barely, and I mean barely fit.  I know there expensive but these Koehler K341s seem cold natured.

TSC carries a GT type battery with 420 cranking amps.  $40+ bucks though.  But yes, I ran auto size batteries in my 1650...550CCA.

I think its a group 26 size battery. I just put one in the 1650 diesal conversion. Got it at auto zone for about $80. 550 CCA.

I think there is about a pint of liquid in the cylinder. It shouldnt come out but it will leak a little. If you move the rod portion of the cylinder it will pump the fluid thats in there out. If you want the fluid out, then disconnect the hoses at the control lever, put the ends in a bucket and manually move the rod of the cylinder back and forth. There will still be some drips coming out after this. 

 

If the fluid is red it is ATF (cant remember what kind), if its golden then its motor oil (cant remember what weight).

 

Here is one way of filling the hydro

The other way is to fill it up through the dipstick tube, this is slow and messy.

Precautionary question.  ATF is Automatic Transmission Fluid.  The cap on the dipstick says to use Transmission Fluid.  I'm assuming ATF is fine, correct?

Got the 3 point on today.  Needs touch up paint.  Scoop tote attached ready for trial run hopefully in the next couple of days.  Raining now so may be just testing hydraulics.
