I am looking to add another hydraulic port to my 330, but don't know where to begin. my first question is if it is even possible? secondly, what would i need to do so? I want the second port to be able to angle my 54 blade from the seat. any ideas?

cg, You can use all the parts from a 318 for the conversion. It's not a bad job, you may have to lift the enigne to run the steel hydrualic lines to the front of the tractor.

Thanks. I like the kit from Auxiliary Hydraulics. I do not want to have to lift the engine because I do not have the means to do so. Again, thanks.

If you were to use rubber lines instead of solid steel lines you may be able to thread them through the space without lifting the engine. I've seen it done that way on 314's but not on 318/330. Just an idea. The owner of Auxiliary Hydraulics would probably know the answer to this question.

Your Welcome Glad That Helped Good Luck with Your conversion Never did Understand when Deere Came Out with the first 300 series Diesel without Two Hydraulic outlets or Power steering Probably why the 330 didn’t sell well Compared to the 332:thumbs:

Yeah, me neither, it makes sense that with a big heavy diesel engine the tractor should have power steering. It also makes sense to have hydraulic angle on a front blade with the help of the second hydraulic port. But, sometimes, things just don't ever make sense.
