I have an L185DT with 870 hours that runs great and has a lot of implements but the one thing I am missing is a front end loader. There are loaders available, but none of them are for the L185. I can see that the loader mounts to the underside of the transmission and behind the weight bracket in front, But what are the dimensions for the bolt patterns and what size for the bolts? I can get a farmall loader for about $1000 and would like to use the hydraulics from it with a home built frame. Also, I see the distribution block on tp the transmission for the hydraulic oil. can it be tapped into for the loader. Since you could get a loader for the L185 I am assuming the hydraulic pump can handle the load. If anyone has any advice about this I'd appreciate it.  I'll post a pic of my Little guy soon.

Might be worth contacting Woods. Pretty sure they make them for most tractors out there and quality is good.
