Thanks Wayne, great info - thanks.

So the order of disasembly is track off, hoses off, sprocket off ( or can I leave this in place) then unbolt the motor / final drive from the frame.

Or can the motor come off the final drive first?? Read somewhere about this???? I have a good hydraulics shop to deal with once I get it all out - this will be the worst part in my mind...

Thanks again, Grant

You can leave the sprocket on but taking it off will lighten the load a bit. Too, taking it off will give you a ring of open holes, one of which will work good to put a lifting ring into as you pull it.

In some cases you can pull the motor off the final drive, but typically the way they are made the motor's front housing is basically the rear of te final drive housing. In other words the two parts are integral with each other so there is no way to remove the motor alone/complete from the assembly.

I realize there are dozens of different types out there, and I haven't messed specifically with a Hitachi before, but in general what I have described so far is what you should be seeing, or very similar to it.

Below is a link to the place I called about the one for the 331 Bobcat. The guy I taked to was very nice, and as mentioned previously, honest enough to tell me that I'd be better off to get one from the OEM in my case. Never done business with them before, but to me honesty from a salesman goes a long way. Hope they can help you out if the need arises.

Thanks Wayne,

I will get it off the machine and see if I can come up with in locally. If not I will give those guys a call. I'm in Canada but not far from Washington State. I could get it shipped to a friend there. Good prices...

Thanks again, Grant

Grant, we probably don't live far apart (in Canada) and I just went through the same shopping for my Kubota mini-excavator. The best price for a whole unit that I found was at Woodlands Fluid power in Texas. Very helpful parts man and everything worked out very well. They asked at the Border if it was for my business and because it was for my business it had to be "brokered" which we managed to to do ourselves with much sweating....LOL. Had I said it was for personal use, getting it across the border would have been easier. With brokering, however, the fee was 5%.

Thanks Eric,
Hopefully the motor seals will be the only problem. My pump guy is into it now...Otherwise I will try those guys.

Where abouts are you? I"m in Ladysmith on Van. Island.
