Alrighty--here we go. Pics to come. This tractor is equipped with solenoid controls for the hydraulic lift. What I am attempting is to either figure out how the things work and repair...or cobble together an override control. I looked at a thousand pics and decided that the Ford 1500 lift surely would bolt straight on to my sd, and got one on ebay. Nope. Not the same dimensions. I'm still going to sit the 1500 lift on it for pics for proof, in case anyone else is thinking about trying it. I'll make all the mistakes so keep an eye on this thread if you have or are thinking about picking up a Shibaura.
