Here's a quick look at the rear valve I added to my 1710. New Holland parts shows that the remote kit for this model is no longer available so I had to come up with a custom solution. I see a few places sell an adapter plate to tap into the three point lift hydraulics, but it's only an in/out port adapter. I really wanted a mounted valve to eliminate some hoses. The first picture on the left shows the stock port cover and the second shows the new valve setup. The valve setup is made up of two adapters and a Prince SVW sectional valve. I recently purchased a CNC machining center, so I was able to machine the adapters myself.

That's a pretty clean setup. I could see sething like that being a big seller for some of these older tractors.

Very Nice set-up! Similar to factory!
Tedward; do you have a pic of the other side of the plate facing the tractor? Any chance that you can post details about dimensions, ways and hole locations?
Also, there are three ports in the tractor housing… Which ones did you use? I’m assuming that one of them is the pressure port, one is return and one is the power beyond?
Thanks for the great post!

I'll look for more pictures. I can only speak to what's on my tractor...It has a loader so the relief valve is on the loader connection block down by the brake pedal. I think some 1710s had the relief on the side cover where my machined valve setup goes. This setup wouldn't work for those without modifications. There are three ports on the cover. One is the pressure port from the pump, one is a drain to reservoir (unused in the stock factory configuration), and the third is the input to the 3pt lift valve (inside the cover). The non-relief valve cap mounts to the cover and sends oil from the input to the 3 pt lift valve.

This looks fantastic and I think would be something you could sell. I'm looking for these parts right now and having trouble finding what you have done. I would be willing to buy a copy of this for my 1620 if you think it is the same. Just let me know.

I'm sure it's not the same and wouldn't fit your 1620. It looks like the kit for the 1620 is no longer available, but the valve itself is for ~$900, yikes. I'm willing to take a look at what it would take to make a kit for the 1620 if you're interested.

I am interested if you think it is something that could be done for less than ~$500. Anything above this would probably warrant a different option. The setup is very similar on the 1620 and I have seen that it uses a TISCO HV4945 adapter plate that will mount in the same position as your invention. The difference is that it just adds ports that can be used for directing fluid to separate valves. This will work it's just not as nice as what you have created.

Could you make that kit for the Ford 1920?
How much?

I just ordered that TISCO HV4945 adapter plate for my Ford 1920.
I am 1500 miles away from my tractor, and would like to get the 4 new length bolts.
I thought I saw a posting describing their diameter/thread/length, but I can't find it now.
I do think 2 are longer than the other 2, and I suppose both would be metric, since the tractor was built in Japan.
Can anyone tell me what bolts I need to mount this adapter plate?

It would take a bit of measuring and sending pics/measurements, but I bet $500 would be doable.

I live in Rochester.

Yeah I see the Tisco adapters. They are perfectly functional, I just don't like having extra hoses running around. I think it could be done for ~500 but I'd need some details/pictures/measurements to make it.

I already have an HV4945 (TISCO) adapter plate, but I do not yet know if it will REALLY fit my 1920.
The TISCO people say that it will fit, but I have no way to check, since I am in Florida until late April, while my 1920 is spending the winter sleeping in New England.
Your design is obviously VASTLY superior to the HV4945 adapter plate arrangement, so if the adapter plate does not work out for me, I will get back to you in the Spring.
I thank you for your response!

Try: Glemcotractorparts.com ..... phone: 240-317-5301

They show TISCO part #HV4907, which is listed to fit all the Ford xx10 series compacts.
Their part pictured is rectangular, but IS LISTED for your tractor, and the mounting holes may line up.
They do describe it as having only in and out ports.
Perhaps the external shape does not need to match, just the hole arrangement does?
Price is $42.96 + $9.95 shipping.
You might at least give them a call.

NO! The HV4945 adapter did not work for my 1920.
I am still struggling with the remote issue.
I need to contact Mountainview Ranch here on TBN, (fitritehydraulics) to see if he can help me.
Please do let me know if you find a workable solution.

I currently sell the kit for $350 shipped. That includes the adapters, hardware, and gaskets. That doesn't include the valve or the quick connect fittings, but I can add them if you don't want to buy on your own. If you want to discuss more, send me a PM.

Paul, I'm working on designing an adapter for the 1720. The 1710 one won't fit the 1720. I don't have an ETA on the adapter yet though so you might have to keep bugging me to get working on it :)

I only have the 1710 one available, but still working on the 1720 one. What year is your 1720?

Does the 1710 kit fit a 1700?

Here's what the "cover plate" looks like on my 1700. It looks like this is not just a cover plate, but an adapter that has either a supply or return fitting?
