Loader Bucket Cylinder Repair Help
This is a repost from the parts/repair forum. it was suggested i post this here.
I ordered the repacking kit for my Ford 770A loader bucket cylinder. i managed to get the cylinder off the tractor. I was following the instructions i have in the loader manual but I'm having difficulty moving the cylinder shaft.
This is what the cylinder looks like now.
I can't seem to push or pull the cylinder at all. I was able to rotate the cylinder shaft with a metal bar through pin hole in the top end of the cylinder tube with a clamp holding the tube while i rotated the shaft. i tried moving the shaft in by using a small sledge hammer and a block of wood and nothing seemed to move. The cylinder head moves on the shaft freely and the retaining wire was removed but it did not come out the way the manual said it would. i had to pull the wire out because when i rotated the head it didn't unwind the wire.
Any advice welcome as you can see here the second step in the instructions says to push the shaft in all the way.

Re: Loader Bucket Cylinder Repair Help
#1 you have to make sure you dont have any plugs in the hyd ports on the cyl ( to keep dirt out)
#2 anchor the cyl so that it is resonably stable.
#3 Hook a chain to the cyl anchor point, make long enough to loop over
a bar or piece of pipe that you can use as a lever to compress the rod.
Its easier to do than to explain how to.
Hope it will help you.
