    Default Hydraulic top link cylinder

    I would like to add a hydraulic top link to my C50. Where are some good places to buy them on line?

    Also, a more direct place... ==> Hydraulic top link, Top-N-Tilt, Side link

    C&C seem to have a fairly respected line of business here on the forum.

    I searched around a little recently and ordered one from CCM a couple days ago.

    I've been using mine for a few weeks now. Getting the threads sealed is important - don't go cheap with the teflon tape. Cylindar works like a champ - exactly what I needed.

    NEVER use teflon tape on hydraulics. Never use teflon tape on hydraulics. It works OK on the first use, but can later end up floating around your system and blocking a valve or port, especially if you rework anything. Most manufacturers will not warrantee hydraulic components if teflon tape has been used. Instead use a pipe dope made for hydraulics, some have teflon added to the compound. Sorry to preach to you guys, most of us have heard this before, but it looked like it needed to be added again here...

    Preaching appreciated! I bought a can of TFPE-based pipe thread sealer and it works great. My dealer made the same suggestion/demand

    This thread sealing compound is what I use now.
