Toyota SDK8

I have a 1984 Toyota SDK8 that I bought a number of years ago.  It is a great skid loader, but because they are no longer imported into the US, it is a real pain to find any info.  I am going to start posting all of the information I have about it on this page, hopefully some other folks will add any information that they may have.  Right now I am focused on getting the starter turning over reliably, it usually only turns over about once every four or five tries.

My bucket attachment is also all mangled up, I am curious if anyone has replaced their’s with a BobCat Quick Tach attachment plate?

    Have a 1992 sdk8 need lift and dump cylinder packing, can’t seem to find part numbers or any kits to rebuild cylinders.

    If your looking for a low psi inline fuel pump I’ve bought one from a place called Pegasus racing products it’s got good inlet suction and 10-13 psi pressure I’d check website for current price but it’s a multi fuel pump so if you use it on diesel motors

    My sdk8 I’ve had to custom fabricate any other attachments that were deemed universal. Seems like Toyota back then had their specific pattern on the mount area. I’ve added steel to top flange then gussets down sides to make tighter then plates with holes in base for the pin locks if you fabricate it’s some work but can be done
