Thank you! It cost me $342.78 CDN or 273.53 USD. The valve and some fittings were on sale. Princess Auto is one of those places where things go on sale all the time so if you wait them out you can get great buys! Best of luck!Wow great job!! I was just checking in on Dragonegg’s project and you beat him to it! I just skimmed the video for now, but did you come up with a permanent mount or is it just sitting there for now? Will definitely be watching this video numerous times. I could add up the costs in the video, but approximately what was your total cost?

Thanks for following up. What about the mount?
Sorry for the delay, I had to e-mail some images around to myself from another device which took some time (country internet). If you follow my channel, you know I just replaced the auger support bracket on my BX2755HD because the lower bolts appeared to have come loose causing a bit of wearing/elongation of the mounting holes. Turns out the elongation is from factory but it was hard to tell. The bracket part number is 7006001410 and was $38.90 Canadian from my dealer. I gave the old bracket to a friend and he fabricated what I needed to mount the spool valve. The lower mounting bolt on the spool valve passes through a factory provided hole in the hazard light bracket.You will see this in my next video but here are a few photos. I'm probably the only guy who has an OEM spool valve mounting bracket on their BX25D LOL

I'm also putting in a road this summer!! We should start "road building" threads .Nice job, James. I am ashamed to say that my project still sits on the ground of my covered patio. All I need to do is go get custom hose lengths made and plug it in and cross my fingers.
Unfortunately several things have recently changed this past year upsetting my proyect list (now getting even longer). One, a new position at my company which at the moment is consuming almost all my days until darkness, and two... I went crazy due to COVID and bought a used Class C RV and got on the road some in my 'mobile home' office! Just got back from a month traveling down the Oregon and California coasts, Arizona, Death Valley, Nevada, Central Oregon while participating in a crapload of 'zoom' calls with fake backgrounds to mask my surroundings.
I have way too much on my plate. So much that my TBN time is way down as well. BUT... as Jackie Gleason used to say, "One of these days!" Seriously, I really do need to finish this up for the summer as I have a new trail/road that I want to cut in to my lower portion of my property.
