Anyone know the following?

What type of hose to use on the low pressure tube to cooler, coolor to res, and res to suction tube? Mine look like automotive heater hose and are pretty swelled up.

On bottom of frame (parts manual C-1181 page 37) there is a welded bracket on either side with a hole. Mounted forward of axle. What are these for?

Those need to be oil-resistant. Heater hose is not a good idea, in addition to swelling up, hose can deteriorate on the inside. leaving particles floating around to contaminate the oil. I'm not sure what they call it, but any hydraulic shop or NAPA should be able to fix you up-just tell them it is for the low-pressure side of a hydraulic system. For the suction hose, I use a really stiff hose I got from my local hydraulic shop. This is important so that the pump doesn't draw the hose shut and starve itself.

Hydraulic hoses are:

¾" 300 PSI Return - min 2 feet (Salem Power uses Goodyear Instagrip, soft hose, 300 PSI). Small cooler hoses
1" suction - min 3 feet (recommend internal spring, not hard casing hose). Big hose to pump

Per previous correspondence with Brian H. (italics are my additions)

The suction hose that I have used doesn't have an inner spring (like a lower radiator hose) but rather has a spiral of stiff wire woven between the plies. I think it was made by Gates, but I'd have to go out and look. Holds its shape very well, but you've got to crank the clamps down hard (compared to the soft hose) to get a good seal. For that reason, maybe Brian's suggestion is better.

That is the mounting point for NON-Snap Fast attachments, I understand that Case put both style mounting connectors on the '71, '72, '73 and some '74 GT's. This was to make sure you could attach the old non-snap fast attachements along with the newer ones to your 444.

Could come in handy if you find a non-snap push blade, it mounts in those two rear holes and the lift attaches at the normal place. Personally I think the pushing ablity is better when the blade is mounted closer to the rear wheels as more weight is transfered to rear wheels rather than the front.
