7016H Hydrolift conversion - SUCCESS!

Recommended Posts

Started a new thread as too many pics are slowing things down on the old thread. Anyway first let me thank HubbardRA for the know-how. I would not have thought to attempt this without his post on this topic earlier this year. Next I'd like to thank biggie*rat for procuring the donor lift and treating me right on the price. Finally got the steel line the donor was missing and installed it as shown. All parts except for the handle pivot point (which was welded into the frame on the donor - see previous post) are factory.

Here is the finished product. Haven't moved any dirt yet but I did stand in the bucket and it works fine. Very fast. In fact, I think it is faster than the lift on my 916H. I think it looks sweet too. Can't wait to convert the 716H mowing machine next. Already have a line on another donor. This time a blown up Deutz 917H.

It's is possible, just not as straight forward.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
