    hyd cyl repair

    So, your V packing (chevron) sets are very peticular about stack height. Too much and it squashes out too much, too little and they don’t seal. V packing needs to have just a smidge of correct tension to perform right. Most OEM seal kits with V packing sets have the correct squish up...

    Chenge Hydraulic hose in Hi Ranger bucket truck.

    Yep, thermoplastic non conductive hose only if it’s going thru the boom. If its on the lower controls it’s ok to use wire hose but most bucket trucks are hosed with the same material to make it easy to rehose.

    Identify a hydraulic pump

    Yes, there should check valves after both pumps to prevent back feeding thru the pump you are not using. This assuming both pumps are feeding a separate set of control valves.

    Identify a hydraulic pump

    Those are known for eating motor brushes if running for long periods of time, they were designed for momentary use. The suction line fittings look skimpy, the pump may be having a hard time trying to pull oil from the reservoir, thus starving the gear pump and shortening it’s life. They made...

    Identify a hydraulic pump

    Looks to be a Monarch dc drive pump (Bucher Hydraulics now). The orange thermoplastic line would be your pressure output, the other with the elbow suction line, the smaller tubing line the return to tank if the built in relief valve bypasses to tank. These units I’ve seen used for emergency...

    Hydraulic Fitting ID?

    “Easy to fix for me, just cut off the end and silver braze a common end on and crimp a new hose on it. Yes it should have an Oring on it.” I use female braze ons to make crimp hoses if clearance is an issue.

    B2920 won’t start

    Mike, that’s exactly what happened to me but it was in the frigid cold weather, I suspect some snow/ice froze it or the rusty spring return was a bit sluggish. Which reminds me, time for another good dose of WD-Fixall.:ROFLMAO:

    Kubota L3710 Steering Seal Fix?

    “I assume these cylinders can be repaired. Is that right? My little John Deere was made with a cylinder that was welded shut at both ends.” Yes, assuming your local hyd shop is capable and ambitious

    Backhoe valve body leak, repair, now real stiff controls

    If the spools don’t bind when the bolts are loose you need to get that apart and do it right. If they bind up after loose they ruined some of the housing sections or bent spools (check with dial indicator)

    Backhoe valve body leak, repair, now real stiff controls

    Common issue from a fresh repair, if any rust (very common) or grit between the sections will warp the valve section during torque up. The spools are machined to super tight clearances (less than .0005” sometimes) and one small speck of sand can bind up the valve. We use a new flat stone...

    Trouble with Cylinder Disassembly

    Just now seeing this…….bring the rod all the way out, then tap the gland (and the piston will follow) in about 1-1.25”…… you’ll see a around retainer in the groove, take it out…….then slam the whole rod assy out using a chunk of steel stock in the rod eye.

    Material for hydraulic hard lines, Copper-Nickel or only steel?

    Joea99, if you were closer I could bend and flare steel lines while you wait, I have .250” to 1.500”. Some types of stainless tubing doesn’t like to bend or flare, you would need to specify annealed tubing.

    Do I need a check valve on hyd angle?

    In my work crossover relief settings on elec plow pumps (Meyers, Western, Fisher ect) are set at 3000psi. Main system relief only needs 16-1700 psi to do lift and angle functions

    Do I need a check valve on hyd angle?

    They are used for top links in case of valve spool internal leakage. Using that pilot operated check valve will do you no benefit in this application.
  19. wdchyd

    Do I need a check valve on hyd angle?

    No, what you need is a cushion valve, aka crossover relief valve. But it doesn’t work very well with a single double acting hyd cylinder unless the cyl has a double rod. A pilot operated check valve is used primarily for work holding when a hose blows.

    Suggestions for a pressure tester

    Hyd gauges are most accurate in the middle of the scale, I like 5000psi for most systems but add a quick connect to change guages.

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    Navvet, after you get it out have your hyd shop cut at piece of hyd rod stock for a pin. It’s made from 1045 medium carbon stock and will work nicely. You might get lucky and he has a chunk in the scrap bin.

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    First I’d try the sawzall blade between the cyl and frame, using another person to constantly dribble water on the blade. Lennox makes a diamond grit blade if its hardened but doubt that one is. Second I would try a 90 lb pavement breaker and lots of air (1.00” air hose). Third, an Oxy-lance...

    Machining metal parts

    Those are used on several good sized engine lathes. The 5MT will fit the larger 26x120, 20hp. The 4MT works for the 21x60 15hp CNC lathe. Used mainly for opening up solid stock to make glands and collars before boring/threading etc...

    Machining metal parts

    I hate regrinds too, but sometimes you just need to get the job done at the moment. I have worn out two drill doctors, not sure but seems like the plastic housing wears and cuts the point wrong. Years ago I picked up a Sterling drill grinder and it works awesome above 1/2” to 2 1/2”.

    Cheap FEL cylinders keep bending

    KWentling, also the IHCP comes only in higher tensile strength at 100ksi. Many non hardened is 50k, 75k and 85k.

    Cheap FEL cylinders keep bending

    Case 580’s and other heavy equipment manufacturers use hyd valves with work port reliefs set at different values to protect the cylinders from induced loads. Although they can still bend a hyd rod it’s not as common compared to tractor cylinders with no work port relief.

    kubota loader cylinder threads (ride control)

    Japanese (and British) 1/4” and 3/8” pipe threads are 1 thread per inch off. Be wary of accidentally mixing them up, it could be a thread crash. (1/4”-18 vs 1/4”-19….etc)

    Old Honda Tractor hydraulic issue

    A test for the pump with a proper flow/load meter will tell you quick if your pump is ok. You could have a relief valve problem but having to rev up to make any pressure usually leads to a worn pump on older equipment.

    No PTO pump pressure

    FWIW, I have seen some old Gresen spin on filters that were actually 100 mesh screens internally when opened up. Maybe someone down the line mistakenly replaced one of these with a paper type normal everyday return line filter element. That said I don’t like paper element filters used on the...

    Load test Char-Lynn/Eaton hydraulic motors? 101-1005-009

    Fancy test machines are avail but unlikely to be cost effective for testing small low speed high torque motors individually. Testing on the lift with flow meter at the exhaust/return port and inducing a torque load should show adequate results (this assuming main pump is good and efficiency...

    Charging valve / hydraulic accumulator

    FWIW, I believe they are not suppose to ship precharged nitrogen accumulators via mail or ups for safety reasons. (?) Compressed gas (in this case dry nitrogen) is considered hazardous or dangerous and either restricted or prohibited. So your local recharge place might be handy when the new...

    Best to practice with similar scrap metal before making any welds on your project. Always easier to weld it only once, Unwelding and redo can be a uuuge nightmare. Grinding out inside corners and inside 90’s is a great way to make more scrap. Always tack things in areas easy to grind out if...
