That switch doesn't care whether it gets 12 volts or 24 volts - you just need to do the math on the amperage capacity and the draw. Anyway there are lots of switches and relays available to make you a set-up once you figure the knob or other attachment point and the wiring route.

The brand I’ve been looking at doesn’t even offer the correct thread, and says there’s not enough material to make bigger threads.
bolts are cheap, and welding is easy, find the correct thread lop off the lever, weld on new thread, done. the handles will mostly hide and bird **** welds so it don't even have to look good lol.

Separate button for winch would be nice. My little Deere set-up (whole tractor would fit in your grapple) has a joy stick. Hit the diverter button and side to side works the grapple and front to back works the winch. Got to leave the winch clutched out or be real careful as you can bit by bit wind up the winch and not know it until something gets hurt.

I don’t have much room to put the diverter valve. Instead of mounting it first, I’m going to see how short the hoses can be made. I don’t want to mount it somewhere too close to put hoses to. I took measurements.F36BC8E9-D9E8-4182-AB8B-A00C6A58BC51.jpegE1DD224D-E4BA-4971-B767-17CA5C6CE9CE.jpeg

I got a couple methods to plumb the diverter valve with a single hard line, depending on which works best. The rest will be hoses. This will be one of the lines that continues the pressure to where it was supposed to go. If I had centered the diverter valve beteen the two pressure lines, the lengths would have been too short to make hoses. This way the other hose will be 14.5”. The two supply lines to the diverter valve will be a little longer than original. Next trip I plan to mount it just long enough to measure for a mounting bracket and all the hoses that need to be made.

I see I haven’t kept this thread updated. The diverter valve is plumbed, still need to wire and mount it. That’s in the works.

I don’t plan to leave the rubber part of the hoses in the clamp blocks unprotected, they’re for tubing and might cut the hose.

I'm looking at a similar machine that is for sale in my neck of the woods, ad says it's a 63- 64 euclid with a jimmy diesel. Have you had luck finding parts for your machine like brakes and other non common replacement stuff? I'd like to avoid having to buy ransom priced repair parts for it if that's how these are. Thanks and nice work on your up fit.
