I finished separating my 3PH and deck lift operation by adding a lift cylinder from a 345 and put it in place of the lift strap. Now I have a control for each and in a really convenient location on the fender.

Now that the fender control operates the rockshaft, I have the old tower control available for use as an aux front or rear QD.

Thing are pretty tight and I'll need to run the tires wide with chains.

It's a bit late now, but the older MF tractors had the valve set turned around with the levers at the front edge of the fenders giving a bit more room for the lines and no interference with tire chains.

That's more for someone contemplating this mod before they cut a hole in the fender pan.

BRing back from history because of a link on Hydraulic add ons...
Do you have any pics of the added cylinder in place of the lift strap?

I was thinking of doing the same thing on my 455 and just wondering if there is enough room between the frame.

Thanks

Never too late.Looks like a good spot for a cup holder and redo the hydro handles so you can put chains on.Nice job what size JD is that.:fing32:
