Not making much progress ... friggen HOT!!!  Anyway, I had some old magnets laying around, so I bolted them to an old wood rack, and came up with a great table top tool for holding part.  They are strong enough to hold whatever I put up there ... well, not the axles!!  You can see one here holding a fender, plus a few other little pieces.

I just gotta ask. The magnets. Perhaps the bases to old magnetic mount CB antennas? Strong little buggers.

Close!!  I used to have a lightbar mounted with them.  They are rated at 500lbs ea.  and if you put a flat piece like a fender, you really have to use leverage to get it off!!  lol  They sell them at Harbor Freight, $10ea I think.

500 pounds :eek: That's a lot of magnet! I don't know what a CB antenna magnet is but they are tough. Just not that tough. Yours caught my eye because quite some time ago I had a mag mount antenna fail..........OK, it failed when I drove in a parking garage.......... :roll: Anyways, I tore it apart and use the magnet for various things. You just gave me another use for it. Who knows, Crystal River isn't all that far from here. Maybe someday I'll just happen to be in the area.

A D-200 cruiser? So does this mean we can expect to see lots of chrome? Mark.

OK, so I have a question for you D guys.  The manual reads "SAE 30" motor oil in the pump, the sticker reads ATF, and my hydraulic gooroo says hydraulic oil ONLY.  Since my entire system is drained, now is a good time to put the RIGHT STUFF in there.  My gut tells me it will perform better with hydraulic oil.  

 

OPINIONS PLEASE!!!!!!!

Either one but don't mix them, the tranny fluid has a foaming agent in it that the oil does not have.

You cant go wrong with hyd oil, and it can be found at MANY places and not very expensive (TSC, wally world, auto supply, etc) its used in gazillions of construction equip, etc.

Thats what I was thinking.  My hydraulic guy said he has hundreds of customers with Sundstrand pumps, everything from wood chippers to vibrating rollers, and they ALL use hydraulic oil.
