I just finished restoring a WD45 and now would like to put a loader on it. I would like to have full hydraulic, so I was wondering if anyone has had experience adding live hydraulics to a WD45 WFE. Could you run a pump off a "power steering type crank pully"?? Any ideas would be appreciated.

We installed a 10 gpm pump on the crankshaft for loader and remote hydraulic applications (log splitter, planter, etc). Google: cc kelley and son. We bought the pump and bracket from them. You weld the adapter on the existing pulley. Our WD45 has factory power steering and even with the two sheaves there is room between the pulleys and cast iron steering case for the pump. You have to add a reservoir for hydraulic fluid; the tractor reservoir is not adequate. Adding spool valves and a reservoir is a little rough on appearance, but gives the tractor a lot more utility.

Finding that double groove pulley is pretty spendy. You can use the single groove pulley, center and weld a 3/4 inch shaft to it, turn it true, cut a keyway in the shaft, and use a lovejoy coupler or double chain coupler to attach to a pump, mounted ahead of the crank. Tight space, but it does work.

Yes you can use a pump run of a belt from the crank shaft but you need to have a good belt and has to be tight and even then if the belt starts to slip you got problems. I have a little crawler that is set up that way it works ok but if the lift gets real hard the belt will slip
