Sovereign / Allis 900 Hydraulic LIft Plumbing

Recommended Posts

I've got all the original plumbing to re-install a hydraulic lift on my DA 917. Would anyone, by chance, happen to have pics that show the routing of the lines in front of the bevel gear box and underneath the tunnel. I'm trying to get the right locations for everything considering the proximity to the drive shaft and everything else that's under the tractor in the tunnel area. Thanks, Bruce

I can't find the thread but Simpleton7016 done virtually the same thing. The event went a lot quicker as he drained the fluids and stood the tractor on end hood side up. Laying in the steel lines was a snap and the existing hydraulic hoses had a set and laying those out was fairly easy. It still took most of an afternoon to get it done. Rev 1 Search the forums for "hydro lift" with member name on last line of simpleton7016 . Rev 2 Download this. Go to hydraulic lift section. From there it should be pretty easy. http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8.wJ1rE7CNj5kbp796Dq

I installed a hydrolift in my AC 716H. They did not come from the factory with hydrolifts, but I purchased parts from later tractors and used them. I plumbed mine completely with hydraulic hoses and was able to fit all of it under the frame, and not touch the driveshaft, so it shouldn't really be a problems to fit the much smaller tubing in there.

Some pics of the hydraulic lift back end tubing:

Hydraulic lift valve tubing:

(An as bought pic - just a bit dirty due to oil drain leak) One of the lines from the hydraulic lift valve to the lift cylinder passes through the steering gear opening:

The line that passed through the steering gear was the lower one that can be seen in these pics of my PS install. The upper line passes through a triangular opening at the bottom of the frame:

And this is the clip that holds the metal hydraulic lines to the frame:

Hope these help.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
