I need to replace the lifting cylinders on my loader. my question is: what's the difference between welded and tie rod cylinders, and which ones are correct for a front end loader application. my loader was modified before I purchased the tractor and has a separate hyd. pump drived off of the crank pulley.

Hi again, Mark- Tie rod cylinders are easier to dissamble, held together by long bolts. Welded cylinders are more common on loaders. As long as they are properly rated for pressure, either will work ok. The important thing is what pressure they are rated for, since you have a separate pump on the crank pulley, instead of the original WD high pressure, they have to match or exceed the pump pressure. Why do you need to replace the cylinders- are they bent or damaged? Then you need to know the pump pressure. High pressure original WD cylinders are smaller in diameter; low pressure, about 1500 psi, need to be larger in diameter to maintain the same lifting capacity and speed of raising the loader.
