Hi I think that loader will be a pain in the butt to put on a super major. I put a loader from a new series 5000 on a super once.

it was a whole load of fabrication even although they are similar sized tractors, the only thing they really had in common was blue paint in fitting that loader.

The only part of the brackets original to the loader was the uprights/ cylinder mounts. Every thing else I custom made for the mounting frame.

Looks like the muffler will hit the mounts, the front brackets taper in, the major is probably wider than those brackets/ that tractor it's on now. The rear and front mounts will probably be miles wrong for the major mounts. The steering linkage will probably hit the mounts also.

Basically I figure it"s not gonna work easy if it works at all. keep what you got or find a loader that fits the major, then sell the whole package if you don't need the N. if you can"t find a loader, you need the tractor and a tape measure, to figure out if the loader and mounts are wide enough, that you are looking at. That front pump probably will need work to fit the crank shaft drive as well. I have done a few loaders on other tractors and it"s not always easy, or worth the materials/ time to convert them.
If you can"t do it your self properly $1500+ can soon disappear.
Not trying to put you off just warning you what this can turn into in a hurry. Regards Robert

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to find someone with some experience fitting loaders. I had a Super Major before, and I even replaced the two stage clutch in it myself. I'm a pretty good welder/fabricator too. I've even built a few sprint cars, so I'm not exactly an amateur. However, there's a limited upside to this project, so I think when you start talking about fabricating mounts and extended frame members it's a no-go. I think fabricating a power steering system in order to handle the loader, and feeding the front pump into the rear hydraulics for a live system on the 8N would would be easier. Thanks for helping me make up my mind on it.

Hi Glad to here you know what your doing with these kinda projects it helps to understand a guys point and you to be a realist also with it.

I fix for a living and Have to deal with some have a go heroes, that have no clue whats involved with half these jobs. I usually seem to get involved part way through when it was harder than the guy figured or he messed the thing up completely .

I"ve seen most of the guys that think that loader will go on there tractor for 3 hours work and $200 for time and materials, some days $200 don"t even cover the head scratching figuring it all out L.O.L. There are some jobs I won"t even do for my own tractor like this even if parts are free. It"s just to big a headache. Your other idea sounds interesting hope you can make that work good and for a sensible price.
Regards Robert
