    Got mine installed tonight, still not sure Iíve got the routing of lines right, but it works and I couldnít be happier. Pics as soon as I am sure the routing of lines wonít make me look too dumb.

    Any advice on cleaning up the hose routing? I feel like Iím missing
    something obvious.

    1st, you should have both 90s on the top link.

    Try pointing the 90s at each other parallel with the cylinder. Some adjustment of the actual angle may be required to fine tune the hoses to accommodate the full range of motion of the hitch. A 10* movement of the 90s can make a big difference with how the hoses react with the hitch movement. You may find zip ties may help out here.

    2nd, looks like I have the long 90 on the wrong hose. (sorry) The long 90 should be at the top right coupler. Easy enough to change, remember no sealer should be used with the 90-hose connection.

    Route all the hoses from the couplers pointing back towards the center of the tractor. From there they should just flow downward to each cylinder. A common problem is that people try to get the hoses routed in the shortest route, this IS NOT what you want to do.

    You want the hoses to loop 90*-180*. This allows the hose to move easily and not kink.

    On a side note, do you have the side links properly adjusted? Extend the hydraulic side link 2 1/2", then adjust the manual link to match. Your I-Match should then be level side-side. This gets you the ability to tilt an equal amount of angle to each side.

    Please report back.

    It sure seems like most of those hoses are a bit to long and could probably do with 90's on the both ends of the cylinders. I would then zip tie the lines together for each cylinder, kind of what JD does for the FEL lines - that way it looks like only 1 line to each cylinder, plus less chance of getting snagged/caught.

    That sure would reduce the spaghetti look.

    Let's see how they look once they are re-routed.

    You ever do something 3 times and wonder why it was so hard the first time....?

    Thank you for the commonsense steer. Rerouted, and after getting a Velcro cable tie today itíll be ready for years of service.

    Small hydro leak in right fender well on top of SCV. Dealer coming to take it for repair today. When it gets home Iíll do a video of the top and tilt in action.

    Thanks again!

    Good to see. I do have a question though. For the top link retainer, where is the link to hook the top link to the OEM retainer? I see the hose clamp, but figured that the link would be on the side or top. Not that you need it with an Imatch.

    Thanks for the update.

    Thanks again, the dealer loves it.
