Hit ice yesterday plowing snow and the blade just angled from L to R like it never did before , raised to look for damage , nothing looked broke and angled OK . But today when using it wouldn't angle under load , took the cly apart ,the piston broke out on one side , but like most of you , I don't throw anything away , went above the garage and found a old cly. just needed pipe adapters on the connection to hook up the hoses it'll work until I can get the old one repaired .DSC07667.jpg

Shoot... it's only temporary unless it works! I say it's a keeper!

And some people can't figure out why we keep "stuff" around! Glad you had parts inventory to do a quick repair and keep going.

You know your a hoarder when #1 You never know what you have #2 You can't remember where it came from . #3 You don't know what's fit . #4 Don't throw it away just because it's broke.

Exactly!!! I have to defend myself all the time from the wife about being a packrat.
Glad to hear you were prepared ALC, Kudos!

Found a few pistons on the net but all would have to be modified to work. went back above the garage and dug out a small cylinder with a broken off eye on the ram , see #4 above , even though the rod size was smaller the hole in the piston was the same , just needed to counter bore the area with a die grinder where the nut screws on the rod to make it work . The cylinder is ready to be installed and tested .
