Homemade hydro project.

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of mounting a hydraulic motor with belt to the drive pulley on my shuttle. I can mount the motor along the back of the trans. Then I can mount a variable speed valve to change direction and speed. It's not the most practical project, but it will give me something to do this winter. Plus we have a bunch of hydraulic motors kicking around.

Rich, Why not remove the driveshaft and mount the motor connected to the BGB. This way you can still drive attachments. My only question is what is the working speed of the motor. I thought they were much slower than 3600 rpm.

I'm a bit confused by your description. Are you going to do away with the original shuttle drive system and mount a hydraulic motor behind the tranny that'll drive the input shaft on the tranny? Then you'll mount a variable speed pump where? You'll probably need a cooling system with a fan.

with the shuttle trans having 4 gears, I figure I can work with the speed range of the motor. With the torque of the motor being as high as it is, I can overdrive the pulley ratio enough to overcome the slow speed of the motor. I got this idea from constuction equipment that run all fluid drive.I am not worried about pump location, theres plenty of spots to mount that. I could even put the tank where the drive belt area was. I am still in planning stage but I have nothing to lose. If it don't work, I will put it back to the way it was.

      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!😁
