Thanks for the info, we took extra care when loading not to bend anything, for now I'm gonna put it in storage while I collect parts and find a tractor for it, what size/type of pump should I look for?

This is a quote from a gentleman who has probably forgotten more about hydraulics than I'll ever know.


I usually recommend a pump displacement of 0.36 - 0.39 ci for GT loaders. It can be a bit big for 1.5" cylinders but a pulley change can fix that. The other reason is that the usual 1/4" hoses are just over their max flow rate with the 0.39 ci pump at 3600 engine rpm in direct drive.


My loader has an MTE model C 310 which is no longer made. Surplus center carries the right pumps.
