Before putting too much stuff on there, it'd be a great to get power steering fabbed up!

Had some minor mods to make it fit.
The valves interfered with the hydro handle, nothin for it but to move the valves over 1" on the bracket.
The clutch pedal was binding between the loader arm and the tinwork for the hydro cooler, so the pedal rubber had to come off. Now it's all good.

Need to find a seal for the loader pump, but we will see it the seals are just dry or if they're bad first.

They were the ones on the tractor. We moved them over.
I will try to look and let you know.

Edit,
They are 2 ply... And I guess will have to be on the list for changing at some point.

Probably 2 ply so I bet you will blow em out in a few days of heavy use. I have one minimal use orphan Carlisle turf (looks like yours) that is 4 ply I can set aside for you. :D
Note: it's about $40 new (each)

That pedal mod probably would not work for me, too uncomfortable for my short legs :D  it would have to be back farther.

For a loader, there's nothing better than pedal hydro, but for plowing very long, hand control is king.  The feet get very tired from holding the pedal in place unless you have a cruise control lock.

You could put it anywhere, I used 1/4" bolts thru existing footrest holes.
