Looks good, the saw mill I used to work at had a 76 A62 loader, they got it in 78 and ran it till 96 when they switched to JD's that where faster, but they didn't have the hydraulic problems with the Ford like they had with the JD's. The Allison transmission in that loader uses 10 weight hyd oil or ATF, using heavier oil in that trans will mess it up, they learned that the hard way.
