I ordered a Chelsea parker 221R part# 221REAJP-A3XK which gave me a 15/28 gear ratio (the middle of the three available ratios) air shift and a sae B 2 or 4 bolt 13 tooth direct pump mount (no driveshaft required) will have to check on the pump the installers are going to use and the expected GPM.I like that I got the features I wanted on the pto , took three months to get the pto but I think it will be worth it. Have a few more tricks up my sleeve that I will be posting as they are done.What pto and pump did you use? I have one of the surplus ones (chelsea?) But no pump yet. Ill need to set up for an M1084 crane and possibly dump install om my M931A1.
It is more costly ,$1200 Canadian so probably $850 - $900 US for just the PTO.Thanks, I like the idea of a direct mount pump and air shift pto as well, makes for a simpler cleaner setup. I like that the install was easy too. Maybe Ill sell my NIB surplus one and go that route.
There was only room for a 15 GPM pump which is plenty for my hoist ,It turns out they did have to loosen the tranny bolts and move the trans a little bit to get the PTO in .Thanks, I like the idea of a direct mount pump and air shift pto as well, makes for a simpler cleaner setup.

I had my truck go through commercial inspection yesterday and it passed with no problems found at all . Going to insure it today so I went through a scale and have gone over all the local vehicle regulations . My truck full of fuel with the spare on the back weighs 26500lbs , gvw with running the super singles is allowed to be 50500lbs so that gives me 24000lbs of legal load on the road if I can get enough weigh on the front axle with the short wheel base.
