I toyed with the idea of cheap hydraulics. Came up with using convertible top hydraulic pump and cylinders. In NY came to about $75 2-3 months ago. Get the switch and wiring too. The pump is more powerful than you realize. I know it is stronger than you arm. Power window motors won't work. Chrysler products work the best and are cheap. Make sure they don't cut the hydraulic lines They are usually made of tough plastic and everything can be removed as a unit. I'll look around for plans for you or a link to plans. Woody Update: OK don't laugh but the example is on a Sears tractor from quite a while ago and his costs are out of line but you will get the idea.[A href='http://www.geocities.com/wjbaker1/hydlift.html']http://www.geocities.com/wjbaker1/hydlift.html[/a]

Granted I'm only 25, but looking in older Popular Mechanics and other mags my father used to have around, They had interesting articals. Now they have nothing of real interest(to me anyway... really). One mag I remember was the last in a series that explained how two build a tractor called the Power Pup. If I find it I'll check out the big library in NYC to see if I can find the previous issues. If I can find them I'll send scanned copies to Kent to post in the DIY section. Besides a power lift you could also go for power angle as well. That would make things a little more comfortable. John

Here's the point. The hydraulic system is strong enough to lift the snowblower. You could use it to move the lift mechanism instead of using your arm or you could lift the snowblower directly. It is the only cheap hydraulics out there and the tractor battery will handle the load from the electric pump. I think Don will like this cheap idea because it is not much different than an electric lift I have on my tractors now and costs a lot less. What can you buy for $75 (big time NY prices that is) Probably $25 anywhere else. If he replaced his lift rod with the cylinder and a short steel rod he could lift his snowblower. Hmm, how did those Egyptians put up those pyramids? MPH If you think the blade is bad to put on, try their snowblower. Woody

In grain country, there are sometimes old grain augers available that used 12 volt electric winches running off a standard battery. They work well for raising and lowering implements together with a cable and a few pulleys, and the augers go cheaply at auctions if the motors on them are burned out.

Don P... Sacre bleu! (I think that means 'yikes' in French). If your GTS has a 340 motor it takes me back to my teenage years. My next door neighbor had a "Swinger" Dodge that was nothing short of nasty (it was a 1968, I think). What equipment does it have? Tace By the way, Happy New Year all!

      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!😁
