You don't have to have dual remotes to add a power beyond plate for a joystick but you will have to replace your current valve with an "inside" valve that was used on dual remote tractors. The valve that's on your tractor now is a "closed" valve (not closed center though, still an open center valve) meaning that oil flows into it from the right side (when looking at it from behind) and oil also exits the valve to the right side. On an open or inside valve the oil passes straight through the valve so it can go on to the second valve. You need the open valve so the oil can pass on to the joystick valve then back to the remote valve. You can get a joystick valve from www.surpluscenter.com or other places, you just need an open center valve rated for at least 12 gpm of flow. If you go onto page 2 or 3 of this forum there is a post about putting a loader on a 966 and I posted pictures of the joystick I have on our 1066 in that thread.
Here is the thread that Cliff is talking about. http://www.redpowerm...showtopic=62751
