    Default Stuck hydraulic cylinder

    I have a stuck hydraulic cylinder in the "in" position. I reversed the hoses, no luck. This contol valve works on the other cylinder ok. I removed the hoses from the cylinder barrel and tried pulling the rod, no luck. I removed the lock pin around the head to remove any pressure, still no luck.

    If it wont move under pressure and you are sure the couplers were seated then it is time to take it to the repair shop.

    Sounds like the piston is cocked and has stuck in place. If you can't move it with both hoses removed you might try hooking up the extension side to see if it'll move. If it won't you'll have to disassemble it and see if you can free the piston.

    Can you tap on it with a hammer while applying/removing pressure?

    Thanks, I tried what you all suggested, no luck. I removed the locking pin and tied the cylinder between my van and the base of a tree. The tires on my van were spinning, no luck. I backed up and took off, it came out. The rod was bent. Thanks [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
