My Ford 4500 diesel with power reversing transmission has the "hydraulic package" for the loader and backhoe consisting of front reservoir and left and right subframes all joined together to hold the hydraulic fluid. My left subframe has developed a hairline crack and leaks. Can I bypass the left subframe tank, which holds about 5 gallons of fluid, and pipe the front reservoir and right subframe tank together? Any thoughts.

yes. you can .. but the loader frame usually moves the oil from one side to the other, so that is cools better. from the return side to the supply to the pump side. I have had to have a "Good" welder repair my loaders when they leaked at the corners. I dont trust my "mud dubber" welding to do it myself. Then have them weld in a brace to further strengthen the corner.

I usually had problems when abusing the loader while clearing trees and stumps. These loaders are not good for bull dozing.

I have a 4500 diesel ford diesel tractor that i had this same problem many years ago to temp fix it I bypassed the sump that was built into the loader arm I used a large diameter black iron pipe with reducer fittings and a couple of large diameter heavy duty stainless steel hose clamps to hold it in place , Although this was a temp fix it has been like that for quite a few years good luck

I would mix up a couple of tubes of JB Weld and smear it over the crack, with the surface properly prepared of course. You would not have much to lose if it does not work or leaks again down the road.

Post a picture of the crack. It's probably easier to repair the crack and use it as intended.
