another hydro lift project "finished"

Recommended Posts

I have been working on this system in my head for a year or so. I now have a perfect tractor to try it out on. When I got this 725, the starter/generator wasn't working so I took it out. It rope pulls so well that I plann to leave it this way. Since there is no starter/generator, there is a perfect place to mount a pump. Tomarow I hope to have the valve and cylinder mounted. Here is a few picturs of it so far.

Oh if the pulley on the engine looks bigger than the real one, that is because it is. I cut out the center of a Broadmoor blower pulley, and drilled two holes to line up with the engine. It should work well, I hope!!! lol Elon

Looks good Elon. BTW, you could run it off the fan boster pulley from the S/G and it would pump good at low rpm's. I noticed you have the blower on it so this may not be an issue now. But if you idle around alot with a blade or something you'd still have pretty good flow on the bigger pulley. Didn't we cover this before???LOL

Dave, your memory is sharp! I tryed to run this pump using the large pulley, on my 3310V. It work ok, but it was way too fast. It was neerly impossable to adjust the hight. I plan on using this tractor with a tiller in the spring, so being able to adjust hight accurately, would give the best results. Elon

I mostly like where your going, but I ain't giving up my starter button. What kind of pump is that you are using.
I was told by the guy who gave it to me that it was Fisher plow pump. Elon

Yep, Elon, that is a Fisher plow pump. I have one mounted in my Toyota Landcruiser. I have considered taking it out and putting it in one of my tractors, but I might need that LC to plow with if I can get the title straightened out on it. Looks neat the way you have in there.

Elon, if the power lift moves too quick, You could put some cheap flow control valves and be able too adjust to your liking. I thought of an idea of putting a pulley on the drive shaft, either weld one or make a two piece pulley you can bolt to clamp the shaft. Then have the pump hang down under it. Wouldn't work for a blade deck though.

Good idea, when faced with the same problem last winter, as I had a very heavy (125 lb) plow given to me, I had to cobble up a hydro lift quick. I went to the junkyard and found a fisher plow frame, hydr. cylinder and had an old monarch pump. I mounted my pump to the PTO bracket, only had to drill one hole, then mounted the control right to the res. tank, this was secured to side of machine. Since the machine has a rather nice bumper, i narrowed the fisher plow frame and sectioned it, welded it back together hooked it all up and plowed all winter. Even that large NEaster. we had. Will prob use the crawler this winter, see posts in show-tell and the loader on the other b-12. For pics of the plow tractor, prior to strip and paint. www.plastikosmd.com go to projects page, B12-my first one. scott

I managed to squeze in enough time to finish the hydro lift prodject. It works well, but like before, it's very fast. I'm going to have to get one of thouse valves to slow things down. At some point, I need to repalce an oring or two in the pump, but I 'll just keep a couple of bottles of ATF handy over the winter.

My feet clear every thing just fine. I do feel the line on my leg but I can deal with that. If you want I can sit on it and snap a shot or two. lol I got that cylinder off of Ebay last year. I want to say it was off a Gilson tractor. It's 13inches closed and 16inches extended. Elon

      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!😁
