Hey, Brian! .....I tried to respond to your PM, but I was told you exceeded your storage capacity and need to dump some messages before you can get more.

Brian, I'm glad you got your hydraulics all hooked up and working. Your 1050 looks to be doing a fine job in the snow. Once you get a hydraulic lift setup you wonder why you waited so long to do it.

Here's a pic of the hyd unit from my 1968 Jim Dandy, not sure if the Bolens used the same decal [ATTACH=CONFIG]10824[/ATTACH]


The decal is a little different....

Thats a great system you have there brian. If I want to do that, can I use my tra12d for it? Was it hard to install? Where can I get one(off what kind of bolens)???

Well it took me a while to find one. You just got to keep checking CL and ebay. Sooner or later they pop up.
They are interchangeable between model to model (gear driven)

It was not really that hard to install.

The hydro units that were built into the hydroststic tractors will not work on the gear driven. (so you can rule out the hydro Bolens as a source for one) but the cylinder's are the same on both Models.

BTW.... I happened to take a closer look at the hydro unit and on the filler cap it has the words "Fill 2/3 full"

Great to see that you are enjoying your new hydraulics. Unless somebody sent you pics of the decals on the cylinder in a PM you may still want some. We have been busy with the air compressor and George probably forgot. I'll see what I can do.

I went and got George's camera and took pics of the cylinder. Hopefully they turn out and he can post them. The lower part of my decal is missing, but will give you an idea of what it was supposed to be.
