    I am changing my truck over to engine driven hydraulics using the power steering bracket. It is a two hole mount 4 inch center. It lines up with the extra pulley on my crank shaft. My local hydraulic shop has a pump that fits with 4 gpm flow and 2000 psi. It also has a reservoir on top which look like it holds about a quart and a half of fluid. my blade is currently powered up and down also left and right. Can any one think of a reason this will not work?

    is this enough gpm and psi? I will be running it on a single v belt.

    Is something wrong with the PTO?

    I do not like the pto because every time I stop to back up I have to put it in neutral and let the clutch out in order to raise the blade. Live hydraulics are much better.
