I have an older Ford 3400 with backup that is piped diretly to tractor, no quick connects. the back hoe return, no pressure has 1 1/4" on backhoe and 1" on tractor. Will that make any difference as no pressure. I am going to change to quick connects. Thanks

For mine 4500, when one of the feed hoses broke, someone used hose clamps and a pipe to put it back together. I ended up finding a big bolt and shove it into the hose when not in use or connect the lines together.

If it's been that way and the backhoe has been working without overheating the fluid then it should be fine. I assume that there is some kind of adapter currently that is reducing the larger fitting to fit the smaller line. You will need to do something similar when you install the quick disconnects as the two sides of the quick disconnect themselves need to be the same size, so I would go with a QD made for the larger size line and use an adapter between the smaller line and the QD.

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 ...
