live hydraulic pump hookup
Post a Followup
||My father has an old M he wants to hookup with live power. He bought a live pump to go behind the distributer, but has no idea how to do the plumbing to work his loader with a trip bucket. he wants to run it with the belly pump lever if possible. HELP
||You need to do some alterations internally to the belly pump to direct the oil from live pump into controls.The ones I saw, there was a fitting that went into the drive shaft opening and then they closed off the internal suction port and removed the gears. I have had them apart like 40 years ago after they were converted but never did one myself. Then you use the belly pump as reservoir. There was a kit from M&W I think. I know, not much help but at least you know that you can't just run a hose in one of the outlets.
