I will be reloading the rear tires with Rim Guard. I don’t have the wheel weights for mine.
Around here it is the only product you can get installed professionally anyway so I would have to load them myself if I wanted to use salt. But if you don’t have the weight on the rear end you can not steer the pasquali I have seen that first hand and I don’t want to just leave a counter weight on it all the time that is a real pain and limits what I can do with it. I still believe in tubes even with the new fluid simply because the rims are so old and beat up I don’t want to depend on the beads holding air. Maybe that is paranoid but I will find myself in the woods on the back side of my swamp a mile from the house with it and I really don’t want a flat.
As to hydraulics. Honestly I would order the cylinders you want for your project. If you buy used you will probably end up having to rebuild them with new seal kits and in the end you will spend almost as much as for new. And that assumes the cylinders are rebuildable if there is rust on the inside of the cylinder rebuilding them is more expensive then new. I have one like that on my other loader tractor but it is an odd cycle and would have to have been custom built either way. The link above to surplus center is where I get my hydraulics. You will need Banjo fitting to plumb into the Pasquali hydraulic loop you can get banjo to JIC fitting from Jegs Performance.
I think that is the one the pasquali uses but you will want to measure them to know for sure and the hoses are at surplus center. Infact I need to place an order for all new hoses for mine. It is one of the issues mine where failing do to age so I am simply going to replace them all and not have to deal with any issues going forward.
The pasquali has what is called open central hydraulics. The basics on adding a new control valve is plumb them in serries so take the output of something after the steering valve and plumb it into the new valve bank input. Then plumb the output of your new valve to where the output of the old valve went to complete the loop.
First I would see what the current raise and lower control valve is for the blade and if you can add a spool to the valve bank. Odds are you can’t but sometimes you get lucky.
I said after the steering because in an open center system the first valve gets priority and you definitely always want it to steer.
