I haven't a clue how hard it is to turn up the pressure on the Eaton.

I don't either. Never really worked on an Eaton.

I would really like a pair of 3" lights, but these will do for now. I have the original lights for inside the grille, but the sockets are messed up. The AC/Simplicity outside lights are rather hard to come by from what I gather and don't offer much light. These are 50W Halogen, so should make it easy to see at night.

I am really liking the bug eyes Kenny.  I think you did a awsome job on this project. :rocker2:

Alice received some goodies in the mail this morning. She pitched a hizzy fit until I put them on her. Hope you like.

On the hydraulic pressure part, the valve has an adjustable pressure relief on it. I looked at the old valve and it was screwed in about 3 threads. This valve is flush, so I screwed it in about 3/4 turn to see if that helps.

I hooked the fork lift up and positioned it under the pallet with the old 6-speed from Alice. Rev her up some and worked the valve. Turned the relief screw in & tried again. Took a few tries like that, but she started lifting it. Turned the relief in another 1/4 turn and called it good for now. I was able to haul the pallet out back, but I had one finger steering! Gonna have to add some front ballast. Filling those little 400X8's just won't be enough! I'm looking for some 3X3 square tube so I can see if it will work with this weight.

I checked the turning radius this afternoon. I measured from outside edge of rear tire to outside after turning. To the left it is 75"~. To the right is 65"~. Don't know why as I centered the steering gears when I put that back together. But that's pretty good. Tractor data says it should be 30" (?). But I have wider tires on the back now.

Radius is distance from center out, so that would be 60" the way you measured Kenny.

It's a bunch shorter than the FF's or Ford! I can turn around between the house and side fence (towards the drive) without backing up and that was to the left!

The charge pump is only good for about 800psi max, the internal hydro pump though, that unit will go past 3k like butts, just turn in the relief screw, just be prepared to stall the engine if you ever got full traction.

I have the lift working pretty good right now, Keith! Not going to push it!

Found out why it doesn't turn as sharp to the left! The tire hits the drag link!

I hadn't found any 3X3 square tube, so I made my own. Made up a mount to attach to the tractor.

Put some paint on things. I'll install tomorrow before I load for the show.

I will probably take the tractors out there tomorrow afternoon and get set up.

How much does that weight weigh?

One thing you can do to make the tractor turn tighter is to set the front wheels with a bit of toe in, maybe 1/4" ???

The weight is about 42 lbs. With the mount, I'm guessing 45 lbs.

 

The tie rod on these has no adjustment, so what you see is what you get!

I went out and installed the weight. I do have the option to flip it over and gain about 4" more ground clearance, but it has 8" now which is typical of all GT's.
