Farmall H and a log splitter

I just came into possession of a log splitter with a blown 11 horse B&S motor. I was thinking of using my H to operate it, but wanted to get some opinions on the best option. Option 1 is to use the belly pump on the H with some longer hoses. But I'm not sure if my pump even works. And if it does, does it have sufficient volume and preasure to split knotty white oak. Option 2 is to operate the splitter's pump with a V-belt and pullys I can get at the local farm & home store. I figure about a 1:6 or 1:7 step up ratio would be needed to to math the PTO RPM to what the B&S ran.

Any and all opinions are welcome.

I'll disagree with the other answers. I think the belly pump, provided it is in good shape, will have plenty of capacity to handle that splitter, BUT, you will need to add a 2 way valve to the system. Probably can use the 2 way valve that is already on the splitter, but move it to the tractor.

I think you will be disappointed hooking it to the H hydraulics, and why would you want to rig up a bunch of belts.

Buy a new motor.

Idaho is correct. Drive the hydraulic pump with the belt pulley. it spins faster (~1100) and is out of the way. Putting quick couplers on it would make the hydro go with the tractor. Jim

Your right on the belly pump it wouldn't be near enough for the splitter. A pto pump might be your best bet next to replacing the B&S motor.
