I have the original Allis trip bucket loader on my WD45. One of the cylinders started leaking on the ram end around the ram. I can take it apart but before I do I just want to know if there is going to surprise me when I do (such as springs or other things). Thanks

I have a WD with the Allis Chalmers loader, made by "Freeman". When the rams leaked on this, first check to be certain that the four bolts on top of the ram are tightened, since these crush the packing and seal the oil in the ram. If they are already tight, then replace the "Vee Packing".

Remove the ram from the loader, loosen the four bolts on top, then put the cylinder in a large vise and with a pipe wrench unscrew the top of the ram off of the cylinder.

The ram has a large round ring, in a groove on the end of the ram that must be removed before you can slip the top off the bottom of the ram. Once this is done the Vee Packing can be changed and reassembled. If your local AC dealer doesn't carry the packing, any auto parts store that handles hydraulic hoses etc., should be able to order it.

I'm also from Iowa and my local store used to order the packing from a distributor called "Pederson Sells" I believe from around Fort Dodge I think. Any brand will do as long as it has the vee configuration.

Good Luck

I've broken one of the hydraulic cylinders for the freeman loader and need a replacement. Anybody know where I can get one?

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
