Looking at buying the Baum Hydraulics Corp. seal kit #471270R95 and rebuilding my main lift cylinders on my loader. Been putting this off for a few years but after doing some loader work recently I think I need to fix the leaks before winter sets in. For those of you who have been down this road before how hard of a job was it? Any tips and tricks for removing the cylinders and disassembly? I notice the service manual says to torque the "gland retainer" to 250 to 1000 Ft-Lb. I don't have a torque wrench that will go up that high any tips on knowing when to stop tightening it?

If you can't sleep at night because you're worried that you don't have things torqued properly, remember that:

Torque = Force x Distance

ft-lb = Feet x Pounds

If you weigh 200lbs and put all your weight on a 5ft cheater pipe, you are exerting 1000ft-lbs of torque. Just keep tightening until the cheater pipe will support your weight and you are "close enough."

David I have rebuilt many cylinders and always just tighten them as tight as I can with a 2 ft breaker bar and it will be fine. I usually stick something thru thr pin hole while tightening and it helps to have someone to hold that end.

One other tip when you push the piston back in the tube use lots of oil to get it started.

If I am thinking right the rod gland is held in by a square wire. It is inserted into a slot in the barrel into a corresponding hole in the gland. Just rotate the gland to remove/install the wire. Once that is out the rod, gland and piston will come out as one assembly.
