I wasn't able to get much time in the shop this weekend. But got enough to where I could get the hydraulic system reinstalled.

With everything painted, the original leather boots cleaned and new o-ring for the control valve, we are ready to go.

Ready for reassembly

First up was installing the new o-ring on the control valve and installing the control valve with the leather boot. I also installed the leather boot on the piston rod. Boots look pretty good for using the parts washer and then some dish soap for cleaning.

Once I got the arms back on and everything connected again, I put the block back on the tractor.

With the pump rebuilt, painted and reinstalled,

I reinstalled the tubes and the control linkage to the lever.

I just need to add some hytran and the Hydraulic System is done.

Next up on the TO-DO list, fabricate a new bracket for the alternator. The bracket that came with it, had the alternator hitting the hood. At least they didn't cut the hood for clearance.

After you fill the TC Block, leave the fill plug open. Since your piston is extended at this time, start the engine and operate the TC Lever several times to expell any air in the system. Then set the piston fully retracted and shut the engine down. NOW top off the block, if needed.
