Td9 Bucyrus Erie blade hydraulic cylinder leak


Recommended Posts

rodhergott---I'll be waiting along with you for where to buy packing.  I could use some for the cylinders on the Isaacson blade on my TD-14.

I've done no research.  Through the years I have periodically tightened the nuts to minimize the leaks but now feel that I'm at the end of "tightening the nuts".  What is the site you are talking about?

Hi earl. I looked at McMaster Carr website and contacted them  they replied that they likely have the product but don’t know what I need.   By chance do you know which product I need.    Thanks for the direction so far

Rodhergott,

    I have a TD9 with the same setup.  I recently had my cylinders overhauled at a hydraulic shop near me.  They said the cylinders are pretty simple and replacing the packing and seals was easy.  I don't know what they used, but you could give then a call tomorrow and possibly get them to send you the parts.  They should remember me since they had a laugh about how old the cylinders were and it was only about a month ago.  The shop was Old Dominion Hydraulics in Richmond, VA. (804) 798-4831

That's annoying.  The invoice only says, "Kit."  Let me see if I can get any more info out of them.

I called and spoke to the guy and he said you could either send him the old ones and he could fine replacements OR you could take the measurements of the rod, the groove, and the height and he could get them that way too.  He charged me $54 for both packings.
