Hydro Line Replacement, Brake line?

Recommended Posts

Guest
I need to replace my hydro lift lines. I took the cylinder out to put a hole and cotter pin through it so it will stop popping off and noticed the lines look really rough. I dont want to put them back in. Can I get some brake line from the auto store to make my own lines? If not anyone have any ideas on places I can check locally that may have usable lines?

What model tractor is it for? If the older B series type, I had mine made at NAPA. Take old hoses to them and they will make for around $50.00. The clylinder moves, ridge brake line isn`t meant for that. It will brake.

Its a 2210, NAPA is closed on Sundays :( How long did it take for them to make them?

We have a machine at work as well. The WeatherHead fittings 6 or 7 years ago at NAPA were $10.00 each then now the cheap Chinese junk cost the same or more through MSC plus shipping. The hose is exspensive as well. Be glad it isn`t 6 power steering hoses for a Sovereign. Those are between $250 - $300 depending on where you get them.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
