    Default Kubota LA450 FEL Gland Nut Cracked

    After using my kubota L2950 recently I noticed the seal partially poping out of the cylinder that lifts the loader. I stuffed it back in and it seemed to leak just a bit. The next day I used the loader and noticed not only was it leaking but the gland nut had a crack in it. I took the cylinder to Bacon Sales in Williamsburg MA and they said would be 4-5 days if they had to get parts. It's 2 weeks now and they say they are not able to find a gland nut. Any ideas where to acquire one? Thanks in advance Larry

    If it's not avail through kubota, It'll have to be custom machined using ductile iron raw material

    I use MB Tractor up this way......or Chappell, or TownLine Equip.....

    Best to find out part number and start calling.......

    Messicks probably still a better bet.....

    Yours would look different, but making one is not impossible.....maybe not cost effective for you, but not impossible......

    Thanks for the suggestions. Bacon said they may have another cylinder to replace mine as they said parts are not available and will see tomorrow
