I know its your preference but please consider taking the yellow away. That old girl deserves better than that.
In all seriousness though, it sounds like the hoses are plumbed to the hydraulic unit itself or are they hooked to remotes?

Tractor came with the Deer colors.....NOT my preference...not sure the previous owner even knew it was not a Deer. Really is a pretty decent paint job...if you can get past the color repainting it has been a low priority. Hoping to replace salt water in tires with anti-freeze this winter and will repaint wheels then.

Hoses come right out of the tractor's hydraulic pump and run to the control and back to the tractor... controller has only four lines...the two going to and from the tractor's pump/system and then one hose to each side of the front end loader, e.g, no return line from the loader hydraulic cylinders...... the controler only has two to each cylinder...pull back on both and bucket goes up...used to be if you pushed down, the pressure released and gravity lowered the bucket depending on how hard/long you markings on controler either... was just hoping someone might recognize the loader...and everyone would ignore the paint job... thanks for the interest will get pictures of hoses and controlers tommorrow....

Can you get a picture? I can't figure where those hoses and coming in and out of the tractor. As far as a lever for each cylinder? What kind of nut job was the guy who cobbled that up? At the very least both cylinders should work off one lever with a T in the hoses.

OH I am going to have SO much fun painting this 1020 Deere of mine Meadow Green and Clover White and putting Oliver 1255 decals on it! Revenge is sweet!
