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
