 Remote hydraulics for JD 2040

I would like to add remote hydraulic hookups to my '78 JD 2040 in order to use a grain drill. Does anyone know what all is involved in making this change i.e. how much time and $$$ will I be looking at if I do the labor myself?

 Remote hydraulics for JD 2040

I can't comment specifically on 2040's. My mid-80's Ford 1710 (open centred system) has a combined hydraulic manifold block/pressure relief/diverter valve. A 2040 may have a diverter valve but no manifold block.

To install auxiliary remotes, pressure and return lines from a power beyond spooling control valve are attached to the pressure and return ports on the block. A low-pressure return, or tank, line is run from the valve assembly to a port on the TX/DIFF case. Quick-connect fittings go on the valve assembly cylinder ports and on the hydraulic lines. The diverter valve is changed from remote to auxiliary and that's it.

The biggest problem might be to mount the valve assembly. The one for my loader valve is on top a post and pedestal that bolts to the tractor and puts the set of in-line valves hand-height next to the steering wheel. Sometimes valves are mounted on a fender, which might not be too convenient for loader operation. The mounting post came with my used tractor and I think it's specifically for a 1710.

A manifold block routes return oil from the remote valve back to the 3ph high-pressure line. With a block, auxiliary system devices and the 3ph can be operated without changing the diverter valve, but a power beyond valve should be used. Without a block, the diverter valve must be changed to go back and forth between auxiliary system and 3ph operation.

I really don't have a clue about costs. A dealer may have a factory package that likely is expensive but would provide a price comparison. The bits and pieces can be obtained from places like Northern Tool usually at lower costs that a dealer package. A dealer may be able to put together an after-market system with less aggravation that a do-it-yourself job and at lower cost than a factory package.

John Deere 2040's used two different hydraulic systems. Some were open center and some were closed center. You need to be sure which system you have before you can get the proper parts. If you want the factory setup, the closed center system is quite expensive but relatively easy to install. You can expect to spend in excess of $1000.00 in parts for new. Used closed center parts should be fairly plentiful. A 1978 2040 is probably open center though. Used parts for open center valves would probably be rare since deere didn't build many of these. The cheapest solution for either would be an aftermarket spool valve that you could fabricate mountings and hoses to install.
