I have a 1950 farmall H that has the stock lift all system on it. On the right side near the brake the former owner added a quick attach device, and on the other side is the standard 2 plugs. My question is this, where do the hoses go on at, is it just one output and return hose or two, for a one cylinder (3x8). Also this is going to be a really dumb question but which way should I mount the cylinder, the screw side up or down. Thanks for the help.

The way a cylinder is mounted does matter. The rod end goes up or next to the load. The rod takes up space in the cylinder, so the bottom end will lift more weight. Always fasten a cylinder with the bottom end in the fixed position.

Good luck,

Mr. Kbassett!

"I'm glad you asked that", is a famous reply from somebody who doesn't know and knockin eighty. Just installed a 3pt hitch for the first time in the old girl's life since 1940. She is just going to be used by my son-in-law to mow grass, kinda put out to pasture you might say. Seriously, I'm going to sit back and read what your responders have to say about the manner the hoses and valves and their connections are all threaded. I'm sure we'll both learn something regardless of our ages?

I have talked to a technician for Lion Hydraulics concerning the manner their cylinders are mounted.
He did caution me about the probability of corrosion affecting double action cylinders when used as a single action device.

All 3 openings are for pressure AND return. The liftall system is a one way system. You need to have a single acting cylinder or a double acting cylinder with a breather on one hookup. The hookup on the magneto/distributor side is the one most commonly used - it and the one directly across from it work right away when you pull the lever. The rear outlet on the clutch side is a delayed lift/drop outlet for the rear cultivators.

The way you mount the cylinder should not matter, although the way it fits the implement could dictate which way to put it. Usually the end that comes out goes up (or back).
