Deleted at the bottom of the window I cut a piece off, when the window should be slightly lower. Then drag link can move freely. Hole from which the drag link will summarize rubber out of the cabin, the cabin when the tightness is maintained and still get the drag link to move freely.

Is it a prison tractor ? You got enough bars on the windows ;) Nice project though, looks like you are progressing really well.

Ah yes. So you are going to add power steering. Cool 8) You will have to fill us in on how well the kit fits, and works. :D Dandy Dave!

Booster series, at least externally, seems quite good quality. I think it works quite well. But if it works as it should, so it is certainly a great help.

Thank you :) . I removed the tractor to lift hydraulics altogether. Blocked the wagon, where the loader is connected to the towing device hooked. The tractor will only use the forest, so the wagon did not have to disconnect the traction device, but it is there permanently in place.
