Having the loader with self leveling arms really will be nice when using those forks :thumbs:

Ok, I decided that oil was to expensive to let it drip quickly from the pump.
Made a bunch of phone calls, everyone either said "No Hydraulics" or some derivation of it.
I finally just took it all down to the first place I called and they matched the seal and the o rings right up.
Sent me to an auto parts store where they had the closest I'll find for retainers (the old ones were just plain missing except for a whisker of one.

The PO had the belt to tight, starting to see the effects in there, but I think I caught it early enough. Time will tell.

In this last pic, you can see the ears on the clip. They need to be removed to allow the pump to go back together.

And the results, I think it's got just a little more power. Or it's my imagination... IDK


Now to get the ballast done.

Alan, it appears to be bushing only in the entire pump, so not designed for side load application, but neither is the pump I've been running for years on my Massey with FEL. I run a 5/8 wide belt, but keep it just tight enough not to slip, which isn't tight at all, in fact, just snug enough to straighten the belt.  Never had a problem yet. I went 5/8 instead of 1/2" wide belt just to increase the grip area to prevent slipping being I don't run it at a typical tightness.

Got to use it for an hour last night.
Am learning how to use it and finding what its strengths/limitations are. Not only the FEL, but the Roper 18T as well.

So far, LOVE it.
