Farmhand Loader Question

3089 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  jscherer
I have a 1951 H, w/ what I beleive to be an old Farmhand loader. The problem is that it leaks fluid pretty bad from the seals between the pistion or ram (which is approx 4' long) and the cylinder. I have tightened down the cinch nut or whatever it's called, and that worked for a while, and now it leaks as soon as I raise the loader. I cannot find a part or serial number on it, where should I look?

Also, does anyone know what is invloved in replacing the seals and where to find them? As old as it is, might just be some packing material in there?

Thanks for your help,

I sounds like it's a seal in the hydraulic cylinder. I've never repacked one, but here in MN there are several places that fix cylinders or can order the right parts. I'm sure there are a few in CO, too. Last one I had done was around $80 or so. Google it :)
