    Thanks! That has been my favorite thing to do so far. I have more scrap sheet metal & I am making parts for the cab - I want it to at least look like Ford lines & style...

    SoundGuy, I believe I could leave the OE relief valve in place & still use the intake opening, but it wouldn't function as relief because it is no longer connected to a pressure line. Everything under the lift cover is only functioning as a reservoir - both intake & pressure lines are capped off where the tube assembly bolts to the transmission housing. I am using an inline relief valve on the pressure side of crankshaft pump. The center housing will only have a return line from BH.-may-16th-2013-backhoe-work-may-17th-2013-backhoe-work-may-17th-2013-backhoe-work
    Surplus center has several that I am looking at. The intake line from loader reservoir & pressure line to selector valve are presently hose, but I am replacing the hoses with rigid line (mainly) & there seems to be plenty of good spots for the relief valve.

    I like that anvil. Is it an old one?

    That is a great anvil, it's been in the family as long as I have been around. I did some research a few years back - can't remember much now, but super to work with. I don't know what steel they used, but all the pounding and bending etc... & not a dent on it. I've never seen another one like except on the internet.

    Well, I've been away for a bit - life gets in the way & slows you down...but, I do have some updates. (and a few pictures). First, after many design ideas to add the old sump as add-on reservoir, I looked at the issue from every angle - old loader reservoir with who-knows-what inside & it's small to boot. I decided to build a completely new reservoir for both loader & backhoe.

    It fits under the backhoe mainframe, holds just under 20 gallons (6 more than required) and I am using two sight gauges (instead of dipstick) - using hard line on both the intake & pressure until the last 8 inches before connections, and that will be hose.

    Since I started using this electrolysis process, it has proven so effective, I've ended up moving my way up the tractor - piece by piece. All the cylinders are rebuilt & I am working on the lines for the BH tomorrow. This is a bit short on details, but hopefully, I will have time to post more in depth. (Including the final solution to diesel in the crankcase)! The standpipe had come loose - no breaks, no holes - it just had a very small bit of braze on it & that held for 50 years ad popped off. It's at the radiator shop now, hopefully that will be resolved by Monday. So, here's a little of the progress:
