Now that's the kind of information I was looking for!!! I feel a lot better.
One of the cylinders for the bucket on this old loader is seized. I've tried everything but nitroglycerin to get it to move. No luck. 10 ton heavy winch with three part 5/8" line with old four speed reducer tranmission. Front of truck tied to a big tree and the other end of the cylinder tied to a bigger tree. Nothing movining. Sure hate to buy a new cylinder but it's looking bad. Probably wouldn't be any good even if I did get it apart????
