I bought a 730 loader for my 4000SU (which I believe has a 3000 front axle. I have two questions:
1. There appears to be only 2 - 9/16, course thread holes in the front cast iron housing to hang the front of the loader from. Is this sufficient? Are all 3000 loaders mounted this way?
2. The hydraulic lines that run around the inside of the front loader frame seem like they will be awfully close to the sheet metal of the nose section. Is the nose section the same size on 3000 and 4000 Fords?
I am close to being in over my head on this project, so would really appreciate any advice you can offer. Thanks!
