I got one more issue I wanna tackle with this machine. The one thing every loader tractor should have, power steering. I got a donor machine. Just need the time. Stay tuned..................

And then finally I might install the pretty dash decal I got from Limebuzz!!

I installed my dash decal that I got from Limebuzz, and it's GREAT!  You'll be very happy!

Got a new addition to the loader!! Found this tooth bar while perusing Home Depot site. It is a Swisher. Meant for the bucket they make for 4 wheelers. It's 44" wide but of centered fits the loader bucket nicely. I still have to do some work on the edge before I install it but shouldn't be to hard.20180314_190342.jpg

Need some ideas on where to plumb in a hydro cooler. Spent the weekend working it and I noticed things started getting a little louder and slower. Popped out the took tray and felt the rear. She was hot!!! I'm thinking the extra HP has something to do with that. Any thoughts?

What About Hook Up A Small 12v Fan To Keep It Cool??

It already has a fan. I'm needing to add a separate cooler.

 Plumb your connections on your hydro return line right at the hydro.  The only place to put the cooler is in front of the engine cooling intake, and it's kinda tight in there.  That is unless you get a cooler with it's own 12V fan.  My Bush Hog JB1 with the twin Wisconsin engine, it's hydro got way hot on one of my plow days.  Started leaking hydro oil past all the gaskets it got so hot.

I have an extra Case oil cooler laying on the shelf. Also have one from a Duetz 1920. Seems the Case with an electric fan wouldn't be too hard. Would let me hang it just about anywhere. I'm assuming your talking the hard line that goes from the rear case to the pump body?

No, it's the line that returns off the hydraulic remotes.  Just plumb the cooler between the hydraulic remote return port and the hydro unit.

Had some goodies arrive in the mail today. Thanks to a fellow member, I get to add a few more options to the 1655 loader.20180522_160910.jpeg

Went to the Lawn and Garden tractor Extravaganza in Evansville last Saturday. Things were fairly inflated as usual but happened upon this. Then just so happened to meet a fellow member. He made me a great deal on this setup and we chatted a while. He has another machine I might make a trip to get. We will see....

Once I get some other jobs done, I'm going to pull the Massey back in the shop and start installing all this stuff.20180611_184827.jpeg
