Loader hydraulics...easily repaired?

Recommended Posts

If all goes as planned in the next day or so, Ill be the owner of a loader for my 912H. The current owner hasnt used it in a while, but he says it works. My question is: If the hydraulic cylinders need work is it better to rebuild them myself, pay someone to do it due parts tolerances, or just replace them? I should have pics of this by wednesday night.

Cylinders aren't hard to work on,but like Maynard said,having the right tools is the way to go.If I was leery of doing it,I would take it somewhere to let them rebuild it.Replacing cylinders shouldn't be necessary.

Watch out for pitted pistons, if the pistons are badly pitted or scored no O-ring will seal them. If you run into that situation then you'll need a specialist but otherwise it shouldn't be to hard.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct
