Easy way to do video is to upload it to Youtube and post a link. You can embed the link too (use the tool that looks like a Film Strip).

:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana: It works, it works,:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:
I put the unit on the tractor and the arms go up and down. Everything is temporary so it can't get back there and put pressure on it to see how much power it has but at least they go up and down!!! I am going to get the switch put in the tractor and all the connections made permanent so I can get better connections. I do have one problem and that is the gasket on the resevor is leaking so I have to take it all apart one more time to fix that. I knew last night I should have used a thicker gasket. This has been the most frustrating, aggravating, expensive part of the whole project. But I have always had the belief that if some one made it, some one can fix it, unless it is made out of plastic then those rules don't apply. You just have to keep working at it and don't give up. I am a somewhat stubborn Swede.

I just did my first one last week. MH81 walked me through it.
It's pretty simple.
Once you've got the vid on your computor, go to Youtube, and open an acct.
Upload the video to your youtube acct.
Copy the link that is displayed there once the upload is complete.

Then, in your post here, click on the film strip icon, and paste that link .

That's it.

About all you have to do is create an account and upload you video.

Whilst waiting for the video, I went back thru the thread looking for info about your lift links. Those look pretty neat and similar to what I have in mind. How are the threaded rods attached at the lower end? Handles on top are rather cool, also. Should be plenty of adjustment with those.

Your hitch looks very professional. Nice job. Can't wait to see it in action.

YouTube videos are easy, the only thing to watch out is if you add music. You need permission. Or use free music like I do.

@KennyP The non adjustable arm is welded to the yoke so it wont turn. If I have to adjust it I can take the top bolt out and raise or lower it that way. The leveling adjuster has a jam nut welded to the bottom of the rod , the yoke has a hole in it but is not threaded, the jam nut on top of the yoke I drilled a hole and put a roll pin in it, this way the rod can turn in the yoke. I made the handle to look like the leveling gear boxes on the Massey 35 or 50. I brazed a ball bearing on the rod and bent it to look like a handle.

I will try the video out but might wait until I get the power lift back on and do one of everything working right.

That's just what I thought you had done at the bottom, wanted to make sure. That is a very nice looking build. Hope mine comes out half as good. Not enough progress to start a thread as yet, but pics are being saved. That is one cool looking tractor, you have to be proud of it. Thanks for sharing your build.

I put the power lift back together for the VERY LAST time tonight and it worked pretty good. So I painted it and tomorrow night I will put it on the GT for the VERY LAST time. I got my battery decals today so I put them on the battery and hooked it all up. It looks very nice. To find out more about the battery decals go to my thread on MF battery.

The solenoid on my power lift stopped working so I am waiting on a new one. I talked with the guy today that rebuilt the motor on the power lift and told him it didn't have a lot of lifting power. The motor keeps running but it is like the relief valve is not heavy enough. He said to change the o rings on the piston that they could be hard and leaking. So since I didn't have anything else to do tonight I replaced the o rings. They did not look that bad but I changed them anyway. As soon as I get my solenoid I will see if it helped.
