    Chert driveway

    Depends on your location. Chert you can get here in west TN doesn't hold very well, it washes but it's cheap so people use it. Put crushed limestone on top of it and it holds fine.

    Cx2510 factory 3rd function, rear remote question.

    PB from loader valve to 3rd function valve. 3rd function valve has a PB port that runs to rear remotes. Rear remotes power beyond feed 3pt valve then 3pt valve dumps to tank. That is the sequence for just about any open center hydraulics in a tractor like yours.

    Coolant flush procedure issue

    Sounds like you might have some air in there. You drained the old coolant already and are flushing with clean water and radiator flush if I'm reading correctly. When you drained it did you drain out the radiator and the block? There is a block drain just forward of the oil fill cap.

    Coolant flush procedure issue

    When you say the block gets hot, how are you measuring the temp? What does the temp gauge on the dash indicate? It takes awhile to get a diesel that isn't under load to warm up and open up the thermostat. Infrared thermometer would be helpful for you to see what the temp actually is before you...

You should charge and load test or take it somewhere and have it tested your current battery. It might...

    Help! SSQA to a JDQA Grapple?

    Less weight overall and less slop in the connections. You can make sure you are using good steel and having it welded up correctly if you either do it your self or have someone you trust convert it. Makes it easier for you to sell if you decide to get rid of it later for some reason.

    Reason I ask is it's all irrelevant unless you know what it is OP is trying to control. For instance if it's bermuda glyphosate isn't going to be that effective no matter the rate. If it's fescue glyphosate 41% at 2 quarts per acre would work great.

    Adding a Two Spool remote -- Do I need to connect "Tank"
