Hi Everyone,

 

What kind of Hydraulic Wrench does my Hydraulic Cylinder use? I have seen other cylinders with holes to attach a special wrench to, but this one just has a slot cut in one side.

 

Thanks!

Are you sure the end is threaded? It might be a internal retaining ring. Also make sure the end isn't held in place by the hose fitting that screws in that end of cylinder. More photos would help.

Never seen one like that before. Is it off a tractor or a factory loader attachment? If it's a custom built job then who knows where the cylinder came from.

Ditto!  You can see the slot & circlip if you blow the photo up enough.

I see the slot and clip now. how do I go about removing it? I don't need to do it now, but I am planning ahead and learning as much as I can before I need to rebuild the cylinder int he future.

 

Thanks!

You need to drive the end of the cylinder back into the cylinder enough to remove the ring, then you can use the piston to help as a slide hammer to drive the end cap back out of the cylinder.

So the part I need to drive back is the part in the photo that surrounds the Hydraulic Ram, correct?. Can I just use a big punch and hit it back?
