So I gambled on a hydraulic lift on eBay, and won it. It's a 18703-04, and I'll be putting it on my 900. The seller said that the lift was working when removed from a tractor that had a blown engine. The rest of the tractor was scrapped.

 

Unfortunately, some of the important pieces of lift were not saved. I have the reservoir and it's mounting bracket, the two pump supports, and the hydraulic lift cylinder. 

 

I'm missing the mounting bracket for the cylinder, (part #1714790) the belt guard, (1714774) and the entire control rod assembly (1714791).

 

Can someone measure the mounting bracket for the cylinder and give me an idea what I need to look for to fab something up? An idea of the thickness of the bracket would also help. It looks like it's just an "L" shape with the large flat portion bolting onto four existing bolts on top of the transmission, but I need a rough idea of the size of the other angle the cylinder bolts to. I could also use some measurements of the control rod and the bends in it.

 

Alternatively, if anyone has any of those pieces lying around from a parts tractor, I'd be happy to take them off you hands for a fair price!

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a lift on my 900. I will try and get out there in the barn and get some pictures/measurements for you. The lift does work great when all restored. The belt guard is nice but will function without it. The control rod could be bent out of 3/8" template rod, the mounting bracket basically flat steel with a welded on lip or could have it bent at a shop could probably make one easy enough.

It's not square Pic 1

Thanks so much. Now if someone can give me an idea of the bends on the control rod, I'll be in business.

It's a rolling bend, center lines of bends are not inline

3/8" rod. The Metal pivot block looks similar to a standard Bolens issue, perhaps Rick Show or Brian Bolens Parts and Supplies can help

If your interested in having me replicate them shoot me a PM and we'll go from there.

Hey Ed
Well I thought I'd horn in and help because it's still in the box and easy to get to, know you would of disassembled yours for the measurements and I was hoping to help you both, by doing so I knew I was leapfrogging your intentions,but figured I was saving you some work. Happy to be of assistance.

You saved me some time. Having it off the tractor sure makes measurements more accurate. I did not realize the base was tapered either. That NOS pump must be really nice. I had to put a few orings into mine but that's about all. It works really well on the 900 and looks fantastic with Stew's hand sewn seat on there.

I certainly appreciate the help. Mine isn't going to look nearly as nice as yours, but I'm going for function over fashion. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that the lift works when I get it installed. All indications are that it will.

 

I just wish the guy I bought it from would have taken a couple minutes to unbolt the brackets.

Yah, that's too bad he did not give you everything... It should work well for you. If you need any documentation I have parts and user guides for it. My 900 was purchased from someone who did a very thorough restoration on it. That's why decided to put the lift and the custom seat on it. I rake my 250' driveway with it and it does well even has down pressure, pretty cool. Let us know if you need anything else.

WrenchinOnIt is going to assist me in fabbing up the needed parts. I don't have access to equipment to make the job easy. I really appreciate the information and assistance. 

 

My 900 is a conglomeration of 900 tin, a TR10D engine from a tractor unknown, and the rear end from a donor 1050 after I kind of ruined the original. I've had it for two years now, and bought it mainly to move snow. Thankfully, SW PA has been relatively snow free the last two years, but it's only a matter of time...

Here ya go Sarge (I think) plasma cut out the bracket. Heat and bender on the rod. They are like horse shoes ,hand grenades and bombs, I got close. Pretty sure they will work. Some holes to drill in rod ,may scare up a handle grip. You'll need that small angle bracket as well it's next but... I've followed up this left you hanging in suspense with a PM :)
