    what make and model of pumps do you have? are you wanting to run auxiliary hydraulics? if your pump has a charge pump sometines you can capture power there. if not, you may be able to add a small piggy back pump to it depending on the style of pumps.

    what are you trying to operate? maybe a 12 volt linear actuator can do the job?

    resto--yup--the other series of this tractor--was one made by massey--a 1650--single cyl kohler 16--cast iron rear axle--and live hyd--wanted to change mine over to that--as those tractors are hard to find--but not the implements--me thinks they blew the single cyls from hard use---18 mag kohlers would have been a much better choice--and one i read about did just that!!!--soooooooooooooooooooo
