Hydro Lift/ Power Steering Cylinder Repair

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up for any members in the SE Wisconsin area... I have a late model Sovereign project tractor that had a leaking lift cylinder. I priced out a new one at well over 300 dollars. I would prefer to fix it myself but I don't have a lathe to cut open the welded cylinder. I talked to a few shops but no one seemed interested in messing with such a small item. The local NAPA recommended AFI Direct Services in Oak Creek. They have been doing hydraulic repairs since the 50's according to their website. I took my cylinder there 2 weeks ago and they were awesome. Picked it up yesterday, it looked like new and works perfectly, no more leaking. The total damage was 170 dollars. My Sunstar power steering cylinder is starting to weep, and now I know where to take it when the time comes. I wasted 60 dollars on a lift cylinder on Ebay that leaked worse than the one I had, live and learn I guess.

      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 
      Paul
