Good morning all,
I have a 1975 MF16 and just bought a Johnson Work Horse Midget 10 Loader without any pump. I am not familiar with hydraulics and need to configure a hydraulic pump whether PTO, inline shaft, or electric. Could I tap into the mower deck hydraulic lift lines? If anyone could provide some guidance that would be greatly appreciated.
The hydraulic pumps I have looked at can't take side load to be run from a belt off the front PTO, so I need to either remove the PTO and attach to the crankshaft using a love joint assembly but I don't know the size of the crankshaft end, or whether it's keyed or tapered.
As you can see, I'm lost in this area and would appreciate any help.
