Overhaul of Loader

Last week (with one arm) i decided to remove my loader off my tractor and replace the seals on the leaking hydraulic rams. Three of the rams where in superb condition considering they where manufactured in 1980 and only needed new seals the fourth unfortunately requires machining and a new alluminium sleeve fitting ( no lathe so had to ask a friend) I have ground out and replaced all the sacrificial steel pin holders and replaced all the worn pins.  I know look upon my loader as my own

Ive replaced all the pins and wear plates overhauled three of the four cylinders just waiting for the repaired piece to be returned then i can assemble the last one.
I was gobsmacked at the price of the seals considering there doesnt look much to them 107 for all four sets   Ive even given it a coat of paint     it looks suuuuper will put a pic up when i get it back on tractor
Hawkeye

seals are expensive are'nt they thats one reason i hav'nt done my digger yet

What make of tractor is it? We have very old Fordson industrial that leaks sqeeks blows smoke   but for same reason as Hawkeye aint done a thing to it   sure beats a shovel

Smokes like a gud un     Not sure of the loader manufacturer this was manufactured in 1980 four years after the tractor.

The main lights still work and the horn but thats all electrcally but all the hydraulics are strong and PTO tyres are good so it it does everything i want  I love it its my baby  

Next lob is to replace the seals on the stearing ram once ive saved up

Great job there   are stands borrowed or not needed now.

You will be able to fix most of those with a thick plate welded on the outside & a longer pivot pin.

I need to sort out my digger soon. Lots of the pins & housings are well worn. I am considering these as a easy fix to save drilling out & re lining the worse ones. I guess they are going to be costly especially as I will need a few.

Hi Justme   Thats what i did i ground out the old plates and welded in new then fitted new pins. the pics have got new plates and pins i was just showing how much wear there was   Some plates are on the inside others i did what you said and welded outside with longer pins.

The stand i will take to pieces once the loader is back on the tractor as i never really take it off(fist time its been off since ive owned it)
