From what I've heard, DV550 motors didn't like being turboed and they died early deaths if run too hard. 436 pulled better.....

Steve, yes the 550 V-8s are pretty doggy in trucks & near impossible to find used parts for rehabbing...

Been Playing around a little in the shop lately on some new projects. Just thought that I would share some pics....

Independent 3 point lift divorced from the deck lift.
294267.jpg

The valves for the 3 point and a second set of ports on the back. the left lever is up / down and float. the right is the ports up and down.
294268.jpg

The cylinder fits between the tire and out of sight nicely
294269.jpg

The tractor sits a better if you ask me with 3" heavy duty drop spindles..
294270.jpg

This is a quick attach for the blades. Makes it easy to pull the blade on and off in under 1 min.
294271.jpg

Flip down the clamps and pin and your ready to go.

Mock up blade on the tractor

The 3" drop spindles. Heavy duty 3/8" grade 50 steel.

Dang Aaron, only you could make it cool to talk about divorce on Valentines day!
That interconnection between the deck and rear lift has always driven me nuts.
Looks like a winner.

Thanks guys. You could run the cylinder off the second factory circuit if you had dual hydraulics or you could put in a diverter valve and split a single system. It was a little more work to do the 4 system but worth it in the end.
Ps. Working on a new blade angle kit. Stay tuned.......
