Kenny if you are not sure of cleanliness be sure to put a 10 micro filter in the return line.

I am a bit concerned about that. I happen to have another filter adapter, but the threads in it are iffy.

 

 

I got the return spring yesterday. Too cold to put it in and the seals are not here yet.

Kenny if you could find a flow meter as cheap as I did and a gauge it would complete you test stand and also be handy for other troubleshooting hydraulic

Your link in that thread is broken, AL. One of those would be nice, though.

Kenny that cylinder is only good for maybe 1000psi. I have it done and awaiting its second leak test.. had to re visit the stuffing box as it leaked around the rod and barrel after it was assembled the first time..DOH!
The stuffing box was thusly redesigned, machined, threaded, and a new steel seal nut machined up to fix the mickey mouse seal abortion it had...
The barrel is thin and could distort under extreme preasure and leak so be for warned.. dont ask too much of it.. lift for a plow would be fine..angling the plow... not so fine..you dont want it pulling. Its not designed for it.

I got the seals today. Hope to get the pump back together tomorrow and do some parts mounting for the stand.

Worked on the stand today! Got the spring and seals in the pump. That spring is fun getting bolted back in there!

Got the wagon wheels mounted and set things back up for a look/see.

Figured out the best spot for the engine and marked the holes for mounting it.

Welded the handles on and bolted the engine down.

Next is making the pump mount. It has to pivot to put the belt on, yet be able to snug the belt for operation. Many options here.

Been thinking over night and have a plan in my head for the pump mount. Be easier to build it and take pics. Should be a simple affair. Lots to do yet. Need a valve actuator. filter, gas tank & some legs in the front to hold that up.

 

When I take this pump off to put on the Cub 108, I have a Chevy power steering pump I will replace it with. So the stand won't be just a 'now' thing.

Got some more done today! It was beautiful out! The band saw got a work out! Cut a bunch of pieces for the pump mount. 

DSCN2495.JPG

 

Welded those together where needed. Had to drill some holes for the pivot parts,

.DSCN2496.JPG

 

Made some slots in the mount angle. May have to revisit those and add a bit more slot. Had to cut a chunk out of my frame as there wasn't a flat spot to bolt this down to. It's welded real good on the bottom side. 

DSCN2497.JPG    DSCN2498.JPG

 

Welded the pivot parts to the pump base and aligned the pulleys.

DSCN2499.JPG    DSCN2500.JPG

 

Got some legs on the front for it to sit on.

DSCN2501.JPG

 

Got the tensioner made up and installed. Now its time for the filter base mount and the other things I listed above,
