I have a loader on my M - not sure of the make but it very closely matches a Horn-draulic loader. I have used it for years but just saw a pic on the web that makes me think I have it mounted wrong. It works fine but maybe I am missing something.
The single acting lift cylinders are plumbed together and bolt to the tractor frame with two rectangular plates. These plates are joined by a piece of pipe that the plates and cylinders pivot on. I always had the plates mounted on the very front of the tractor using the front sets of mounting holes at the bottom of the bolster. The jointing pipe ran in front of the radiator just above the front wheels.
I just saw a photo online that had these plates bolted on behind the front wheels in a vertical position. They hung down and the connecting pipe ran under the oil pan.
Which is right? The "behind method" allows for more upward push by the cylinders. Does that help with lifting? I don't have any issues with it not lifting a load or anything. Just curious if one is better.
Not sure if this even makes sense. If needed I can fire up the computer and upload pictures.
