I’m new to my 1984 Kubota B8200D 4 speed with a BF300 loader and power steering. I’d like to hook up a hydraulic top link but don’t have any idea how or what components are needed. I don’t want to lose any of my current functions. By the way my S/N is 11207 with the D950-A-DT 0.9L engine

You'll need to add 'rear remotes'. Hopefully someone with your tractor will know if a 'kit' exists'.
The problem with '3rd functions' is that most 'swap' an existing function for the new one, using a solenoid valve you power to direct the flow of oil. So you choose which to control, you can't have ALL 3 at the same time.

I know there's a kit for the BS23xx series for 2 rear remotes, it might work for you ??

All you need is an inexpensive control valve with a power beyond port. Pick a handy spot to mount it then:
  1. Locate the power beyond feed going from the loader valve to the 3pt
  2. Move the tractor end of that connection to the IN port on your new valve
  3. Then connect the power beyond port on the new valve to the port on the tractor that you just disconnected.
  4. Finally install a tee in the tank retun hose on the loader and connect the tank return on the new valve to it.
Your third function valve is ready for use and you will not loose any existing functions. If you want more than one remote simply install a valve with more than one spool.
