Trip bucket latch

Recommended Posts


A friend of mine just bought a B10 with the early L10 loader. It has a homemade bucket. It is well made, but the trip bucket latch doesn't work very well. It won't reset automatically and won't release with weight in the bucket. I have been searching for close up pictures of the stock latch but can't find any. Is there anybody that has one of these loaders that can take some detailed pictures of the latch system for me? Both of the bucket and the arm.

Excellent. Thank you. Can you show a picture of the hook on the arm with the bucket away? Whenever you have a chance.

What is the diameter of the roller?

How thick is the hook?

How is the horizontal arm that connects to the hook retained? Is there a set collar on the outside that can't be seen in the last picture?

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
