  1. Two things. Diesel shop has rebuilds in stock in USA. Go on website or call. You’ll need your part number off the pump and at same time replace your lift pump. Did my 240 totally different machine. E me if you need more help. John
  2. As far I’m concerned those side lights are to show where you been or where your going on MFD. Set them almost 90 deg out each side. Mount two lights on the weight bracket at 45 deg if your going LED you won’t have to run a separate circuit just branch into to your front lights. That’s how mine swings John
  3. To bad. I’ve a set of front and rear tires on rim setting in the shed. Came off my 5140 to switch out to 14.9-46. If it wasn’t for covid-19 I’d load and hop the border and deliver to you. John
  4. Seems some will go to the duplicate post chose edit and delete the text. They then will type sorry duplicate and resave. I believe only the moderator can delete or move posts. John
  5. If you can see that well in to the cylinder bore look at the top of the pistons. Mine said 0.030 which is the max over bore for those blocks. John
  6. Had some 490’s and one would cut deep in the centre and one cut lite. Found that the lite one needed weight in the centre cause the wings cutting would push the centre up. Could never get the linkage set right to make it cut even. Added 600 lbs to middle and things worked out great. John
  7. The old dozers and other equipment had what was called 3 man seats. The construction crews would ride in to the job site with the operator and ride out at end of shift. So I’ve been told, John
  8. I had one years ago. Just put a 3ft mast in the ctr of the cult and put a boat winch at the top, could hook one side and winch up an then switch and winch up the other. Once the wing was over ctr it fell into place. Unfold was easy just grab and push over. John
  9. If you run a hot lead to your implement plug it is the one straight down at the bottom 180 to the ground which is at the top. If your plug has the colours indicated my rule of thumb is yellow is left cause it’s got a L in it green is right cause of the R and brown is running just cause it’s brown. Of course red is brake or stop. John
  10. Mines homemade on 8” 1200 lb capacity swivel casters. It’s 10 ft between uprights and is tight for a lot of my jobs. John
  11. Just a thought but it could be o’ring boss “orb” John
  12. Google the part numbers and aftermarket suppliers will pop up along with oem dealers. That’s how I find excavator boom and bucket parts. Also the Heavy Equipment Forum have information and the guys are helpful just like here. John
