Well I dont get on here very often but I read the forum a lot,somtimes for information sometimes for humor!!!!! LOL I want to give Gery Zelke from the great state of Mich. great kodos for my one arm loader.( may I recommend Gary if you need anything Ford!!!). Painted ready to mount on my 1964 4000.I have all the right brackets for my tractor but I need to know if I need to use grade 8 bolts or are standard grade ok?? Also do I need to safety wire those bolts as shown in the book or are lock washers ok instead? I think I'll vote lock washers. Thirdly I am using stainless steel 3/8 hardware coming off the valve assy do I need to use 304,or higher grade stainless hyd hardware. Fourthly anybody got a jack stand for this loader I missed one on ebay by minutes Crap!!! thank Rick Sundblad Easley Sc an OLD IOWA Farm boy reloacated out of the snow belt LOL

many of the fasteners ont he tractor are grade 5.. considering you are going into cast iron.. 5+ should be plenty fine. you are going to damage the casting with the bolt not the bolt with the casting once you get 5+

I would NOT use GR2.. unless you want built in shear protection on loader over-loading. ;)

I am like you, read the forum alot, but don't post much. I would use Grade 8 bolts to mount the loader. Lock washers should work also. I am in Michigan, whereabouts in MI is Gary Zelke and does he have a business name to look up if wanting to contact him? Thanks, Pat

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
