Looking good so far.

You will need the weight in the rear, I added a set of 75Lbs wheel weights I took off mone of my Forsg LGTs, and then another 110Lbs of weight on the 3 pt hitch.

The loader is really moving along, you are doing a very good job.

If you have a 3pt hitch, an easy way to add more weight to the rear of the tractor is to use a pipe to hang between the lift arms and add weights (the kind you use for weight training).

I did this with a scrape piece of pipe, welded a cat 0 centerlink pin in each end, and have an additional 110lbs hanging on the 3pt hitch.

Bernard-
Your FEL looks great. I realize this is a 9-year old thread but I’ve been searching through the older threads for FELs and recognized your name and knew you were still active. This will be my next project once my 990 is back together. Actually, it’s the reason I got it in the first place.

Do you mind a few questions about yours?
