I was right, there were... but it was on a Farmall "M" & it was all Cable Driven. Looks like the Loveless's Spider from The Movie "Wild, Wild West"

It's not easy using a loader without that feature if you've used one with it for 30 years. Can't pile the snow as high with the new loader.

what is the best kind of pump to use? would a power steering pump work? I have looked online and I guess building my own is the only way to go..
A GM p/s pump can be modified to run a FEL. But care has to be taken or it will push too much fluid and you will have a hard time controlling the movements.
All new hydraulic components will make hash out of a $1000 bill. A quarter of that is hoses and fittings. For the rest you can shop sales, eBay and CraigsList and maybe find bargains to ease the pain. The steel will run you $300 plus unless you find what you need in a dumpster. Shop equipment is also pricey, and a couple of things it is best to take to a metal shop, so you can add in that cost.
Oh yeah, a couple of sets of batteries for the calculator and a box of pencils along with a big notebook. Brush up on your geometry!
It ain't cheap, but it is do able over several months with searching for bargains. You are not going to whip it out in a couple of weekends.
