|greywolf224 said: (quoted from post at 18:53:37 09/14/13) After putting pen to paper to draw up a diagram, I realized that I was overlooking the fact that I don't want to plumb up to the internal hydraulic oil via the drain plugs, rather I wanted an external mounted tank to supply the remote hydraulics. In doing so I could not also have a live PTO utilizing the TEST port. I wouldn't be keeping the systems isolated. |
So is anyone using the internal 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid to supply a 14gpm pump that connects to the TEST port and some remote hydraulic connections?
Just wondering if there is enough fluid to supply everything and still keep the transmission, differential and internal hydraulic system supplied.
Yes. You are pushing the "thermal envelope" with 14 GPM but a lot depends on the duty cycle of the hydraulic loads. A FEL can easily run 3:1 on reservoir capacity and that is exactly how Ford/Dearborn designed their loaders. I believe the internal reservoir on your 19-70 loader is very close to 5 gallons so you could switch to the internal sump (or connect the two) and have the best of both worlds with little or no worry. The only concern is heat dissipation and either way you don't have a problem with your current loads. The 3pt is ZERO additional load and a live hydraulics hookup to your existing loader pump is butt easy - just takes a few $$$ for the plumbing....
