Hydraulic Tank

I'm gathering bits to install a hydraulic winch on my ROW 90. One issue I haven't worked out is what to use for a hydraulic fluid reservoir and where to mount it. RHD 90 with fuel tank under RH seat and battery under LH seat. Suggestions?

If you intend to use it for long haul, then you might need a cooling reservoir, otherwise, pump line winch and use the same type of reservoir as the power steering. I'm sure you can find a spot right next to the one already in place.

Younger, we pointed the lad I now became.

Since your fuel tank in under the seat you could install it like in the SIII.
The tank is mounted in the rear against the rear cross member. An access hole is cut in the wheel arch and a cover plate fitted.

Be sure to fit an over center valve if your motor doesn't have one.
