Get some good ideas too.
On the last picture, the one with the foot and the leg, what is the
thing at the bottom left with the Made In USA sticker on it? It's too
close the the back of the engine to be the pump but looks too
substantial for a filter.
That is a prority flow divider. The pump is 12 GPM and uses teh tractor sumps as teh hydraulic reservoir. The flow divider splits the pump output into two independent pressure streams. The 1/4" hose is the priority circuit which is set to a fixed 2 GPM flow that goes to the test port for live hydraulics. That is the maximum flow rate the 3pt control valve can exhaust. The 1/2" hose carries the excess flow to the control valve and from there back to the sump via the transmission filler. This one is for a side distributor 8N and the pump is shaft driven off the crankshaft.
