My friend has a IH400, 1958 model.
he would like to install a loader on this tractor.
I found one that is off a IH 300 tractor,
Question: do you think the loader would fit the IH400, if it came off an IH300??
He is concerned the Hydraulics are weak on the old IH400, do any of you know how much hydraulic pump pressure would be necessary to properly operate a frontend loader?
can the Hydraulic pressure on the old tractor be test by attaching a high pressure gauge to the Hydraulics lines and would the gauge show the max pressure the lift system has when you activate the lift?
they are asking $600 for the frontend loader, i do not know if it has a Hydraulic cylinder or manual catch on the bucket dump.
Have not got that far yet,
first must know the Minimum Hydraulic pressure necessary to operate the frontend loader and determine if the old tractor still has that much pressure.
Thanks for you assistance!
