I just picked up another tractor, a Gilson / Wards that came equipped with a Johnson Workhorse loader, wheel weights, a ballast box and a snowblower. My plan is to put the loader on one of my 1650's as they are quite a bit bigger than the Gilson. I just picked it up last night so I couldn't get any pics, will get some asap. I have some questions for the experts;
1. does the pump on the 1650 have enough volume and pressure to run the loader or should I use the remote pump on the loader?
2. if i can use the tractor hydraulics can i use the valves on the tractor to operate the loader? use the mid hyd. valve with float for raising- lowering 2nd valve to dump the bucket?
3. will i need to beef up the front end, if so will a 1655 axle bolt in or should i just make new spindles?
thanks in advance
