Sure thing John! Pictures taken; experiencing "technical difficulties" uploading from phone & exploring remedial options like Google Photo.
I'm also "curious about the hangar that bolts to the bolster for loader to fasten to" ... I haven't built it yet! ;-) lol
Did my homework/checked out solutions/ways which have worked out well for others, and thus far, principle design I'm aiming arriving at involves quick disconnect and arms/stand for FEL. Didn't look difficult on video, what could possibly go wrong? lol
& why not? For myself, design/fabrication is an entertaining hobby, so I'm not in a race with guidelines/rules, do's and don'ts, nor in contest with judges to please, not a production manufacturing facility having bosses and co-workers to please, I've got nobody to please but myself (with caveats to safety).
I'm definitely qualified to be one of those "old country curmudgeon" types, what would have difficulties living within Homeowner Association rules. lol :-)
The front end loader I purchased to go on my 1949 Ford 8N was someone's stalled project, and I knew from the get-go, I'd have to purchase missing parts/pieces and fabricate as necessary, making things work out as I went along (fun-fun ;-).
