    Default Top link Cylinder Noise!

    Suddenly my top link cylinder makes a "Chattering" noise with hesitation when I lower it with the box blade connected. Checked fluid levels, possibly air in the system???? or ????

    Perhaps "Mad Ref" has the answer!!!

    I have a CCM hydraulic top link cylinder and it also chattered part of the time while extending. Also it wouldn't move at times and I would have to disconnect and reconnect the hoses.

    Then I added restricted orifice fittings to both lines at the quick connects and that fixed everything and slowed the action down which made it much easer to adjust.

    Assuming it has worked flawlessly since day one, and it is now some time since then, and nothing has been connected/disconnected, and it mysteriously started to chatter then I would look at the cylinder rod. A slightly bent or out of line cylinder rod will give the same symptoms. You may not even see the bend, it must be measured.
