    Re: 6.0 Power Stroke Questions

    Ok, I'll try not to ramble. On an old vehicle, you can put pretty much whatever you want in it. As long as you flush it out. You have a 98 chevy pickup, you want to put green in it to save a few...

    And btw, to FTG-05, and anyone else regarding anti-freeze. In your pic it looks like possibly dexcool? Or maybe just the camera or something changing its appearance? You never want to stray from...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Gotcha, so the loader valve is basically a more complicated valve like what I'm trying to add now. Just inline, using hydraulic flow in the series of whatever valves may be in the circuit of fluid,...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Oh ok, I see. I didn't understand it correctly. I read all the part about pulling the fender and whatnot. I guess when I saw all the plumbing going on, I thought that was where you tapped in as...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Its a 2013 or 14 (whichever is first for the DPF in the exhaust) Kubota L3301. I believe the relief valve is in the valve body that controls the FEL. So if I understand the function of the system...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Thats great, thanks for the link! But why did you go to all the trouble to tie into the back? Whats the benefit versus tying into, what seems to be, the much easier to access front connection?

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Oh I see, very good point! Thanks for clarifying that! So will the motor spool valve allow for the pb, even while it's allowing the motor to free wheel? Or is there some special plumbing involved...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    Sorry, I'm not familiar enough with the terms. I've seen products being sold with both of those names, the motor spool valve and the two spool valve. I guess I was thinking that the motor spool...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    I have read about and considered the switch to use the curl hydraulics but I think in the long run I would regret it and redo it. I feel I may as well just bite the bullet and do it the other way. ...

    Re: Adding FEL hydraulics to Kubota L3301

    I'm thinking a lever. Seems that would be easier to use later on for my post hole digger that I have planned. And from what I can tell, its cheaper anyways, rather than incorporating electronics in...
