Boom cylinder repair

Hi all,

I have the boom cylinder out of my Case 32 backhoe for seal replacement. I just got the seal kits today and wonder how difficult it will be to get the piston back in the cylinder after I replace the seals? Looks like it takes a fair stack of stiff plastic chevron seals. Do I need to do something special to get this assembled in the cylinder again without damage? Thanks.

A number of years ago, some bean counter at Case got the bright idea of reducing the amount of chrome on backhoe hydraulic cylinder piston rods. Needless to say, I spent a whole summer at Case changing rusted cylinder rods. Just oil the seals well, oil the cylinder opening, make sure the rod/piston is in alignment with the cylinder, and drive it in with a sledge hammer.

Roger(MI), Thats what works for me too. "AFTER" the Piston/Rod is inserted into the cylinder and the BIG Nut has been started in the Cylinder threads, a few raps, on the Piston End, with a BFH will keep the Nut from binding(easy to turn) I don't try to DRIVE the piston all the way in, only keep it ahead of the NUT.

When I have trouble I put a ring compressor on them and soak them in hot water and allow to cool and then grease them up good and stick it in the hole.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Generators - by Chris Pratt. As a companion to the articles on three-brush and two-brush generators, it seemed fitting that we should provide our readers with a description of how a generator works in lay terms. The difficulty with all those "theory of operation" texts is that they border on principles of electricity or physics and such. Since I know nothing of either, you will have to put up with looking at the common sense side of how generators work which means we " ... [Read Article]
