Can you please help me add 3 more hydraulic remotes to my D-17? I have a loader with quick disconnects that needs 4 remotes to operate, I only have one. Mine is a series 1 D-17. Please explain how I can do this, I purchased a cross open center two spool valve. I installed loader on tractor today and have the lines run to the back of the tractor. If you have any diagrams or pictures that would be a GREAT help. Thank You for your time, I sure appreciate it! victorianfarm@aol.com

Sounds like you don"t have the op and svc manuals I talked about a couple of weeks ago- the pix and options are in there. Plug your new valve into the existing single remote. Run the return line from the new valve to the plug on the left side of the torque tube, forward of the foot clutch. To operate the new valve, you need to lock up the hydraulic lever on the left side of the steering wheel, providing constant oil flow through the remote. The lever will lock into the square hole in the quadrant, making the pump run all of the time.

I did purchase both manuals on ebay but I havent received them yet. So I dont need 4 remotes, I just need to run the lines from the loader to the spool valve and the pressure line from the single remote to the spool valve. The return line from the spool valve will have to share the return line from the 3 point? So i will have to add a tee at the torque tube? I fully understand everything except the return line and how it threads into the resevoir.

If you already have a return line, going to the reservoir, you can tee into it anywhere. My Series III is teed near the transport valve. Doesn"t require such a long hose. How many remotes you need depends on the loader. Hyd bucket needs two, boom needs one or two, depending on if it is power up and down, or just power up. Either way, your two-spool valve is sufficient. If power up and power down, see if one spool has a float position- hook your boom hoses to that and you can power down as well as go in float. Nice for scraping. Power down is nice to raise the front end to change flat tires.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
