    Maybe I need to find another solution. Somewhere Iv'e seen a unit that was an alternator/hydraulic pump combination. Can't remember if it was for like a Lincoln Continental or for some piece of equipment or old tractor with power steering. The alternator shaft extended through and the pump was mounted behind it, driven off same shaft. I think I could make something like that fit under the hood.

    Wow, REGAL, that's a tough crowd!

    I am going to encourage you to try it.

    First, you want to get a motor that is sized for your speed requirements,
    and it should handle the 2500psi your tractor's pump supplies. The motors
    will be reversible, so they can handle the max pressure they will run into
    at either port. The power demand of your compressor will be less than
    your tractor pump can put out, so that is not a problem. You do not want
    a motor that can't handle the full 2500psi of the tractor, or you will have
    to reduce the FEL RV pressure to whatever the motor limit is, and that will
    reduce your FEL and 3-pt capability. So you can rule out the cheap
    and common Charlynn S motors or White 200 series that have 2000psi
    limits....you might have to go with something like a White 300 series.

    If you run your motor after another valve, as you might from the Power
    Beyond of the FEL valve, using the FEL will stop your motor when you
    actuate any lever. That may be OK since your FEL use is intermittant. If
    you have a valve that is downstream of your motor, then when
    you actuate IT, your motor will also stop AND that valve may not
    see full pressure from the pump as there will be some pressure
    drop across the motor. Another approach would be to run the motor
    off a detented spool of an AUX valve.

    Since you propose to run the motor all the time, you will want at least
    1/2" hose to reduce fluid heating. I assume you will use a compressor
    with an electric clutch, like an automotive AC comp.

    I think you touched on the main problem with his idea...The motor will always be robbing power from the hydraulic system. The limited flow of the pump will be fully realized I think trying to raise the loader, curling the bucket AND running the motor.

    The Power Beyond line that is at the rear of the tractor (runs over top the PTO-under the seat) is after the FEL valve and before the 3PH.

    Yes, that is correct. Even if the A/C system is only drawing 10hp, that
    is a lot, if you are asking your 33hp CUT to mow a field at more than
    a crawl. With the A/C off, that power draw may be only 3-4 hp,
    depending on engine speed and size of hose used.

    Any valve upstream of the motor will get full use of all pressure and
    flow of the implement pump. The 3PH will not, assuming it is last in line.

    The ONLY way I can even believe this would work is with a Priority Valve plumbed in just after the pump that would "dedicate" a portion of the flow to the motor with the rest going to the stock system. Plumbing that in would require cutting into the steel lines under the tractor.

    Just not as good option IMHO.

    Thanks for the debate guys. I really do want to hear all the pros and cons to this.
    The 10hp to run the A/C is an estimate only. In reality I think it will be slightly less. A JD dealer told me that you don't find A/C available on less than 30hp tractors because they allow 20 plus horse for mowing etc. My hope is that by over sizing the hyd motor, it will never be overworked and wont cause undue restriction. I know there will be a power loss involved to some extent. As to loss at the loader valve, I only use it to raise the mmm deck and a front snow blade. I don't have a loader. Tractor's main use is mowing. The only pressure issue I am concerned with is when you hit the end of a cylinder and create a pressure spike in the feed line. But that would be very momentary.
    It looks like the 3pt gets it's oil first. If this is the case then I could see some effect on the A/C motor when lifting it.

    Thanks for encouragement.
    However when you say
    "If you have a valve that is downstream of your motor, then when
    you actuate IT, your motor will also stop AND that valve may not
    see full pressure from the pump as there will be some pressure
    drop across the motor."
    Why would the motor stop? All oil has to pass through it as long the engine is running, right?
    My son in law thinks he has a motor I can experiment with. Don't know the specs yet, may be way too big.
    I want to look at this as - all I've got to lose is cutting into that steel line --welding up some fittings and putting it back normal if this whole thing tanks. OR worse yet -- buying a new one.
    I don't want to give the impression here that I don't believe what some of your guy's concerns are. It's just that I'm not convinced yet that there isn't a way.
    Want to hear more!!

    Regal, I am not as concerned about hydraulic system as others but, more so of compressor. If you do not have a prioriy valve put in like Kennyd said, each time you take flow away from motor and then it gets it back, I would think that compressor may take a beating internally while in cycle. If you do go ahead with project make sure you get sized to what compressor pump that will be used, do not oversize it.

    Are you referring to sizing the A/C compressor to it's system? Or getting a hyd motor that will not be too much hp to drive the compressor??

    Yes. When you actuate a valve downstream of the motor, oil will flow
    (and the motor will spin) until the backpressure developed in your AUX
    valve work port equalizes with what your pump can deliver. That would
    place limits on how much work the downstream valve can do, but that
    does not mean it could do NO work. Like the FEL, the demand would
    likely be infrequent and last only a very short time. And if the compressor
    stops for a second or two, so what?

    If you do this on your 4310, you can access the hyd circuit by plumbing
    into the hardline between the hyd pump and triple SCV, or at the
    hardline that comes out of the SCV. I have used the latter route by
    replacing that hardline with hoses and fittings. This means the 3-pt
    valve will be the last in the series. You can see how I did it here:
    see post #378
    http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/p...ebuild-10.html

    here is an example of sizing a hyd motor:

    Note that the motor itself won't determine the power required to turn it;
    the load you put on the motor will determine that.
