John Deere 46A loader

For a while I had been looking for a front loader to mount on my Nuffield. Using the backhoe as a loader can sometimes be rather cumbersome. Last fall I finally found one on Ebay in South Jersey. I picked it up last week on a Uhaul car trailer. 
Needless to say, to mount it on the Nuffield it will need some modification. The loader was originally mounted on a John Deere 3020 which is about the same size as the Nuffield 465. 
The last two pictures show the mounting system, which is some kind of 3-point quick release system, mounted on the nose and the rear axle. I hope to build some brackets for the Nuffield and without changing the loader too much use this same system to mount the loader.
