    seeking knowlege and experience fixing oil leak on my bucket truck

    Mine turned out to be much more expensive. new collector (rotary joint) cost over a grand, a small bag of seals, almost $300, more valuable than gold. I decided to try the kit. useless instructions. have to call tech support to find out what temperature to heat up the seals to get on the piston...

    Ultra Light Lanyard

    i rather have something substancial. I always cary 2 steel cored lanyards. they're heavy, but I'm moving in a tree, not running a marathon so weight is not my biggest concern.

    This might be a good truck for someone looking

    saw this on my local CL. If I had my future track lift NOW, I'd consider buying this truck. 21' bed should be able to hold your lift and a mini skid on the front. there might be even room for something else. I'd prefer a 7.3 with a 16' stationary flat bed so I can mount all the tool boxes I need...

    seeking knowlege and experience fixing oil leak on my bucket truck

    Took it apart today, actually quite easy. It’s pretty obvious why it’s leaking from the top. The black oil seal on top was falling apart. however it does NOT look like a easy job to replace the seals. The two black ones on the top and bottom are made of two pieces, a C shaped almost hard...

    seeking knowlege and experience fixing oil leak on my bucket truck

    Thx for all the advices. Without that I’d have to spend much more time in this. Took on it this morning. Took about 3 hours to remove the “collector”. The key is to undo the bottom 3 lines, one supply line from one of the two outrigger switch and 2 returns from the hydraulic tank. Once that’s...

    seeking knowlege and experience fixing oil leak on my bucket truck

    I might just want to get a new one. it looks like that after I take out the 3 mounting bolts from the top (easy access), the collector along with the 3 input hoses can be pulled up, out of the hole to give clearance for undoing the 3 connectors. of course, I need to make sure all hoses and...

    seeking knowlege and experience fixing oil leak on my bucket truck

    cleaned well upper n under the turn table, took the first look. It looks like it's leaking on the top of what appears to be a ~2'diameter cylinder shaped device with 3 lines feeding from under the table and 3 above the table. this must be what enables the table to turn 360 degree. all...

    Great! you guys got me a nice head start. Thank you all. side note: this won't happen on the other site, I'll be asked if I'm qualified to do the repair and be suspected as a "hack".

    Thx for the input. will do that. trying to find some kind of diagram how the turn table as well as the hydraulic connections come together and what components in that area. could not find any on the net.
