I have a 3165 Massey backhoe and I need to identify my hoe attachment for parts purposes.
One of my outrigger cylinders has sprung a leak at the spot were the tube is welded to the base. It looks like someone has repaired it before I bought the hoe, the repair has failed.
The hoe attachment is NOT the normal attachment for the 3165, the version that I have was made starting in 1970-71 that was the proto-type for the Hoes made through 1986-88.
My hoe has an 18-19 ft reach and uses a 24 inch bucket itís actually to big for the 3165 but the holes matched so they bolted it on.
My local dealer that had the book for this attachment is out of business and since then I have forgotten the number of the hoe.
Anyone familiar with the early Massey hoes your help would be appreciated
My cylinder is 31-1/2 inches long closed center to center at pins. It uses 1-1/2 pins and has a 24 inch stroke. The outside diameter measures 4inches and the rod is 1-3/4 diameter
