  • Ford Jubilee Hydraulic Options
  • Hey everyone! I've just recently purchased a 1953 Ford jubilee from my grandfather and was doing some research / YouTube watching and while watching the video I'm assuming made by Ford tractor company unveiling the new golden jubilee that there were a few different options with these tractors. The main one that caught my attention was the "hydraulic plate" that was able to be swapped out to run remotes or loaders etc. The other thing was the option to have independent control of the pto. Can anyone give insight into these two options?? I'll be changing all the fluids this weekend and installing a new carb and electronic ignition as well.

  • Glad you asked. The NAA was a crossover model that got limited support. The hydraulic options were primitive and if you do find them today expect to pay dearly. Ford had a much better idea with the Hundred series and I have attempted to duplicate it for the NAA. This hydraulic plate is the NAA version of the HV5902 plate sold for the Hundred and Thousand series tractors. It gives you a pressure out and power beyond return to the hydraulic cover. A low pressure tank return is provided via the sump filler. This is how modern tractors handle the addition of remote valves and you can use it to mount any modern 1, 2, 3, .... spool valve on your NAA and use it independently of the 3pt. Beats the heck out of the Ford Selectrol switching setup. If interested give me a yell.

  • Not being too educated in hydraulics, enough to get into trouble.... I've wanted to install hydraulics on my NAA Jubile since 2005 when I got it... I've got ~$4,000 in mechanical rebuilds... She's like new on the inside... Front blade,(I have in the barn) with a clamp for moving baled hay is my primary objective... Would you mind sending the details for the distribution block etc... Ball park price... I seem to have a check from POTUS that needs spending before I blow it ....
    Thanks for your time.... Dave Mendelsohn..... Omak Washington...

  • Hello, I saw this posted on the Ford NAA/Jubilee Tractor Club Facebook page by Kirk Witte.

    I am in the middle of restoring a Jubilee I purchased at Auction end of Nov. 2019. I was planning on just using it for light jobs, plowing snow and cutting grass but since I haven't even sandblasted primed & painted this is a good time to consider your fabrication. Where are you and how much are you asking? Gerry McLellan Clear Creek, ON. [Southwestern Ontario Canada]

  • I hope Kirk isn't planning on getting rich on the sales commissions ;-). Call or email me for details. This is brand new and I haven't worked out detailed pricing and options yet. My intention is to do something like this for about the same price.

    Double acting remotes

    There are lots of other possibilities.....

  • Good Morning Dan,

    Did a brief skim read of your site and Love what you are and have been up to!

    As I said in my brief post yesterday, Kirk Witte shared your Hydraulic Remote Fix/Update Fabrication on one of the Facebook Pages I follow for advice, inspiration and ideas while I work on restoring my 1953 Ford Golden Jubilee with the help of my friend and neighbour Ben Hodi.

    Previously I had read that there were design flaws in the original Vane Pumps which were replaced when taken in for repair. I see from visiting your website Windy Hill Farms that you have come up with a “work around” for that as well!

    We have got the “Old Girl” [whom I refer to as Jubee] running and are slowly going through the process of checking the mechanicals between “chasing other squirrels” and getting the routine chores done in these strong Covid-19 times.

    Context:- I am on a small lot [under 2 acres] and this is not my first rodeo as I restored my 1953 Mercury M100 truck back in the late 90’s with help from friends and have enjoyed her ever since. I like to tinker too!

    While the old Hydraulic pump seems to be working and I usually adhere to the old saw -If it ain’t broke, Don’t fix it! ; there are times when a little preventative maintenance and forward thinking is in order.
    I am new to country life as we moved out of the city back in 2016 but I can force the desire for the hydraulic remotes in my future.


    * What would it cost to replace the Old Vane Pump with your unit AND order your remote unit as well?

    * Do you include illustrated instructions with your kits?
