That's the first project, remove the loader to allow access for engine work, and clutch replacement this winter.
What is the best method to remove loader. Should I construct a gantry or such to lift the whole contraption from tractor, or can it be jacked up just enough to drive out from under it?
There is a loop centered on one of the cross members above the hood that looks to be for lifting it from frame of tractor by a chain-fall. Is this correct?
I have seen photos of this loader removed from tractor sitting-balancing on blocking. Would blocking method be stable enough to sit out side all winter without keeling over?
Looks like this one
, and this one free of tractor.
