Fordson Power major with cracked hydraulic cylinde

Hi you keepers of Fordson knowledge.

Being my first post here, I thought...Why not make it serious. So, refurbishing my Power Major I finally came to the hydraulic system. Started with the top part, namely valves, cylinder, piston "and stuff". I got the piston out, and after that I shined a light into the cylinder...And suddenly remembered the words.."Houston, we have a problem.."
The cylinder is cracked (see picture). This cylinder is a simple one, without valves and extra "whistles" on it.

1: Is this cylinder possible to buy as a spare part? (Googled a little, could not find that type.. )

2: if real lift is not going to be used (mounted a backhoe), can I simply "block / plug" outlet and return on the "valvepart"?

Any help hugely appreciated

Sincerely Roger

The cylinder is like an engine sleeve and just pushes in once you have the valve chest off. Should be possible to get on from a breakers. If you are not using the hydraulics then it should not give you a problem but if you try and use the arms then that is a different matter.

Hi there and thankyou for the reply.
Yes, I found out it was fairly easy to get out..But...its really cracked.
I am not going to use the arms, so I will just plug the feed /return holes in the valve chest (front loader will still be used).
But I have a hunch I also better check the pressure-relief valve..
