You can do that,just remove the hose from the opposite side of the cylinder and install a breather/filter in the port.

Thanks Diesel Don! I appreciate the prompt reply and I will be off to Farm & Barn in the AM to get the breather!

The D17 will have high pressure hydraulics and if this is a low pressure cylinder, you may blow out the end or the seal at least. Cylinder should be able to handle at least 3500# working pressure. Duey

Duey, Are hydraulic rams stamped with the maximum pressure to be used? If not, is there another way to determine what internal hydraulic pressure a ram is rated for? I don't want anyone getting hurt because a hydraulic ram/hose burst under a load!

I don't think any of the old cylinders were marked. The high pressure cylinders and hoses tend to be smaller than low pressure. As you know, the pressure is per square inch and the more square inches the greater the lifting power and also there is greater pressure inside the hose and cylinder. Usually the high pressure hose is 3/8" and has two steel braids. The cylinder is smaller diameter with the same length stroke. Other than that, I really don't know what to tell you??? Duey

Thanks Duey! I will be careful. The hose appears to be high pressure, but the ram doesn't have the high pressure appearance that you would expect to find. It looks like it might have come out of Farm & Fleet as opposed to the Agco/Allis inventory.

The YT site sells a conversion for D series AC tractors for a two-hose system if you want to go that route. Around $220 or so, but it does include a pressure reducer I think. Check it out - sounds interesting and would allow you to use a number of things with no modification.

Bryan, sounds like the price is right! I will check it out and I am very thankful to you and all of the other good folks who responded to the question.

The larger cylinders that I have, have 4 long bolts on the sides. Also the ram is larger in size. I use both 2.5 and 3 inch on my series3.The idea with taking off the hose and putting on a breather cap works great, the wheels won't come off the ground but the pressure on them will be off. A little weight on the disk and in the ground it will go.

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Purchaser Checklist - by Greg Sheppard. Pound for pound the 550 is better than anything I've seen. It has great power for its size and can really hunker down and lug. Classified as a 3-bottom plow depending on soil conditions. I personally don't think it can be beat for a utility tractor in the 40 HP range. They are extremely thrifty on fuel, at least my DSL is. Most drive train parts are fairly easy to get. Sheet metal is probably the hardest thing to ... [Read Article]
