Dang! Some of the stuff that’s left is reasonable, and then some of the stuff is RIDICULOUS. I think they wanted $20 for a replacement bulb for the dash.
No worse than LMC wanting $11 EACH for the little grain of wheat and grain of rice light bulbs that illuminate the power lock and power window buttons in the armrests!

A little more progress today. I got a small package of goodies from Messicks which included a new hydraulic pressure tube. I painted it yesterday and installed it today, along with a hose I had made locally.

I also installed the over pressure warning light switch which required me to drill and tap a hole in the 90 degree fitting. This was the stock location of the fitting, but they wanted a lot of money for an already drilled/tapped fitting, so I made my own. Also shown is a clamp to keep the hoses in place.

I also cleaned up and painted the main wiring conduit so I can start rewiring the machine.

I got 2 more hoses made. This wraps up the hydraulics around the controls.

A lot of these were originally hard lines that were getting rusty and unfortunately most of them are discontinued and I couldn’t find a way to get new lines made, so I had to have hoses made instead. The downside to this was that it was getting pretty busy in there and I was concerned about rubbing. Luckily I remembered that my brother gave me a spool of hose wrap so I put that to good use. Not pretty, but it makes me feel much better.

Next up are the boom hoses finally. Ugh.

Anywhere the hard line was that now has hose that the hose can rub the body, another hose, etc. consider a mounting clamp. The contact and vibration is where the wear happens, so if you secure the hose to the item it won’t rub the hose raw. Just keep an eye on the spiral wrap- if it gets worn, that is where you need a clamp.
Lookin good.

Thank you. Yeah I was thinking about some clamps....problem is that there aren't too many places to clamp to. The best I can do in some cases is strap one hose to another hose so at least they're more immobile to each other.

Exactly- to each other. It isn’t a case of stop it from moving, just secure it to the item it rubs against.

Back in my yellow iron wrenching days, we always has a caulk gun with silicone for putting a shmooze on lines and wires to hold it inplace where an actual clamp was impractical.

I was kinda thinking to myself if a line blew while operating could be a bad day! Not saying that your hoses would be worse than the old steel. No way to get around it in these cases.
Right on. There was a steel panel over this section of the machine originally. I think I'll be making a new one to replace it.

Well this is going to sound dumb after my last post, but.....I got all of the hoses installed! I had an hour to burn before dinner so I decided to start on it. Snaking them was a lot easier than I expected and POOF I was done! I even installed one clamp. I’m going to look at everything closer tomorrow and clamp and/or add the anti-abrasion wrap where it makes sense. I have suspension work to do on the girlfriend’s Impala this weekend so I don’t know how much more skid steer progress will get done, but if I’m lucky I may get to start on some wiring.

I got a little done today. I got the harness snaked into the conduit first.

Next I figured out the routing of the conduit and harness and got it snaked into place around the hydraulic system.

I started looking for the wiring diagrams so I can get wires to their final destinations and I have run into a problem: the diagram isn’t labelled with colors! There are number tags on the wires, but there aren’t any number labels on the diagram either. I’m going to go online and see if I can find a better diagram.

Tonight I ran the wires to the back of the machine.

I picked up a Ford solenoid, mounted it and ran the appropriate wires to it.

I also started cutting the hole for the hydraulic oil temp gauge, but then realized that I didn’t have a 2” hole saw, so I’ll have to pick one of those up tomorrow to finish the job.

The biggest time suck and pain in the.....arm was attaching the wire to the fuel sending unit. Yes, I had already loomed a wire to the sending unit, but since I had this nice new harness it seemed like a waste to not install it properly. It meant fighting with the heat shield and throttle/choke jackshaft once again, but the end result is much nicer.

Yes, in there.

Just a little done tonight. Last night I alluded to the hydraulic temperature gauge. Well I received it today. This is a customization from stock. New Holland wanted over $100 for the hydraulic temp sensor, which I thought was ridiculous. I found an interchange, but it was still over $50. Then I started looking at oil temp gauges, which I thought would be nicer than an idiot light anyway.....and then I stumbled on this actual hydraulic temp gauge made by Stewart and Warner. It was $38 plus another $15 I think for the sending unit. So a little pricier than the sensor, but this way I can actually see what the temps are doing while I’m operating the machine. So tonight I got the 2” hole saw and made the hole in the dash for the gauge (which required a little Dremel work to make the 2-1/16” gauge fit).

I also got the sending unit installed and the lead changed to mate to that sender.
