Ford Loader Fitted To Tractor Without Hydraulics
"It's a handy, lightweight loader that serves my needs perfectly," says James Marley, Decatur, Ill., who modified an old Ford front-end loader to fit his 1945 Allis Chalmers D-14 tractor that had no hydraulics.
  Marley mounted a hydraulic pump on front of the tractor that's belt-driven off the engine crankshaft. He uses the loader's hollow frame as the oil reservoir.
  "I bought the loader at a sale for just $25 and I got the other parts for little or no cost," notes Marley.
