What are all you builders doing for hydraulic units?
I got wrapped up in other stuff and forgot to mention this post - YES, it did get serious and a lot of good info was shared. I really do say a big THANK YOU to 52 Ford for his simulating the stress in CAD. Gave a lot of good info on the H style press frame. A "C" frame would be totally different.WOW!! This thread has gotten real serious!!
Yep, a 56C motor would fit nicely. Given a choice I'd go with a 3600 rpm motor to get the full flow rate from the pump, With your 3.5" cylinder the 1800 rpm motor will work good.
