the override.
This package shall be coupled with the use of a split shaft PTO and incorporate pumping circuits. These
circuits shall be used allowing the vehicle to operate in the fourth range lockup while operating the pump
mode due to the 1 to 1 ratio through the transmission, therefore the output speed of the engine is the input
