  1. The outline is the check valve one will be on the left side and one on the right side if you have three remotes. Hydraulic lines come from valve stack behind the right hand battery and tire and run to the check valve block then come out the back and go to the rear of tractor to the remote coupler housings.
  2. 5488 MFD is the only one left on our place, had two years ago had a 5488 2wd, 5488 MFD, and a 5288 2wd. Both 2wd's were sold to other guys in the area. As far as I know they are still around.
  3. Prayers for your dad and your family.
  4. Welcome aboard. And loved your story. Hope some day you get that 1066
  5. Got some great information late last night from a fellow forum member. I am going to finish the install and document as I go. If everything works great I will start a new thread and explain. Thanks for everyone's help so far Loren
  6. here is the schematic for the 88 series steering pump, supply line comes from regulated flow divider and steering return tees into brake for supply and continues down for return with two check valves in the system. Supply is #13 steel line--return is #19 hose goes into brake tee and continues to second photo as #34 Hose with #29 steering check valve and #32 as steering make-up check valve. But as I have mentioned, slightly different system and does not use a signal line for pressure demand. Second photo of flow divider
  7. Here is the scan of the magnum schematic...the 88 series does not have a line signal hose, so what should I do with the LS1 and LS2 ports on the diagram?
  8. This is where the problem lies...the 88 series is Off Platform, so they don't support...so no diagram. We are using a magnum kit and schematic, the early magnums had a signal line on the steering motor and the diagram shows it being plumbed into the electric valve body for the auto steer and then comes out and goes to the steering motor. 88 series has no signal line, so do I just blank off the two ports on the valve body for the signal line and forget it? I know others have used the magnum kits, which are very straight forward for all the other connections, just wondering about this signal line. Loren
  9. I know several of you guys out there have put autosteer on your 88 series tractors with hydraulic interface instead of the electric steering wheel drive. Got a lot of pieces and parts to do the job and just worked on laying everything out. Here's the question, the control valve that is added for the autopilot system wants a signal line from steering motor installed into the valve body, but the 88 series steering motor does not have a signal line on it... How did you guys work around this? Thanks for any input and/or advice to help the install go easier. Loren
  10. Farmerfixemup, did you bolt your brackets in place and the bolt heads are tearing up the door seal? I made a heavier bracket and drilled a 3/4" hole top and bottom and welded it in place. Has not caused any seal damage on mine
  11. Watch the classifieds! Lot of city people that think they need a tractor around their new house then two-three years later want to get rid of it. Big drop in price over a new one, have seen a lot of guys pick these up. All three you mention have good reputation around here. Kubotas are solid as are JD's and seeing a lot of masseys showing up now no complaints that I've heard.
  12. Prayers sent. Loren

  15. Awesome job!! Love the details with the oil pan, weights, dual hubs and radio! Very sharp.
