I realize there are only a few 6000s left out there and even fewer of these need their lift piston rebuilt but I just did mine and here is what I found. The piston has an o ring and a back up ring, both of which are NLA from New Holland. The o ring is McMaster Carr #9452K211 and the back up ring is McMaster Carr #5288T37.
The cover that needs to be removed to access the piston has 3 o rings. The cover o ring (83963231) and smaller square cut o ring (81829207)are still available from New Holland. The larger square cut o ring is NLA. The cover o ring is McMaster Carr #5308T284, the smaller square cut o ring is McMaster Carr #4061T159 and the larger square cut o ring is McMaster Carr #4061T171. If you need to rebuild your lift this should make it a heck of a lot easier for you to do so. I would also suggest fabricating the lifting device pictured in the manual as it makes it much easier to lift the hydraulic housing off. I do have extra o rings I could mail to someone if they need them as I had to buy packs of 25 from McMaster Carr. Just let me know.

Thanks for the info in case I ever have to do mine. Was it pretty easy to work on once you pulled the housing off? I bet it was a heavy SOB, wasn't it? Everything is on a 6000.

Next time, instead of buying packs of 25, simply take the pieces to your local hydraulic shop. I bet they can match them up on the spot, and not make you buy multiples.

It was a little heavy but the lifting device made it not too bad.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
