Sounds like the parts you have will work for you with a couple of adapters.  That will make it easier on the wallet.  It will be interesting to see how it turns out.  Alc always has good advice!

That's for sure. I got more accomplished on the handle mechanism today now that I know I can find fittings. I had some 3/4" angle and used that for this. Drilled some holes and aligned things before welding them on.

What I did was drill 5/16" holes through the plate and 'spot' welded the angles in place. Therefore, no welds show on top.

First time bolting the valve to the plate. Got things aligned well enough.

Attached the links I made up for this. I'll weld the spacer tubes to those links later.

And a view from the top side. This is where the 5/16" rod will attach. Thinking I will step the rods down from the far side (inside) so I can tell which handle I have without looking.

Looking good!  I like the idea of stepping the rods!

I'm thinking about a 1/4" down on each from the inside. then you can 'feel' which handle you have without looking. My 3-point lift will move to the outside if I keep it on the 'float' spool. I have a ways to go on this. But it will be one of the 'few' Gt's out there with 3-spool hydraulics.

Probably won't be much to post here until I get some fittings. I won't do the handles until I am sure of the angle this will set at. Plus I won't know how tall they will be until then. Warmer weather and time to accumulate the fittings are what's on the agenda right now.

Haven't given up on all this. Just need warmer weather and a bunch of fittings. Got a couple small jobs coming up to make some GT money!

Stay inside where it is warm - not much fun working out in the cold this time of year.  Spring is just on the horizon (I hope).

I'm piddling with something else when I have 'decent days' to go out. If it's gonna be 50° + in the afternoon, I'll start a fire to get the morning chill off. Plus it gives me time to think things through. I get 'cabin fever' real quick, gotta get out some!

I understand the cabin fever but after working in what the snow fairy left for a few hours seat time by the computer feels good.
