one more question for now

Recommended Posts

What would be the best kind of hydraulic pump for an ac 716 and options for locating a tand for the fluid. This is the first time I have ever had to mount hydraulics on something this small (this is nothing like the dump trucks I am used to working on). Any thoughts? Doug Freeman "Angel from above"

This may not be a popular answer, but I think an automobile power steering pump will drive the hydraulics just fine. Most of them put out around 1500 psi at around 2 gal/min. I am going to use one when I build my loader. You will need to remove the tank from the pump and use an external. You can fabricate a tank from box beam and mount it up under the frame if you can't find a place for a round tank. Rod H.

      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.
