Today I decided to tackle the hydraulic cylinder problem. There is no local hydraulic shops so I had to drive down to terryville connecticut. I was worried that the seals were going to cost quite a bit. In total, the seals cost $13.43 and surprisingly they didn't charge for labor. They asked if they could install the seals. I wasn't going to say no. Last time I tried putting seals in, I ruined one.
1964 Simplicity Hydrolift 990339
Quantity | Seal Number | Price | Gasket Location
- One | 2-112 N-70 | $1 | Bladder Seal
- Two | 2-023 N70 | $2 | End Caps
- One | TPO15 - Piston T Seal 1 1/4 x 1 x 3/16 | $10.43 | Ram Head
Next thing on the todo list is fix the gas tank. I need to rethread the tank spout and put a shut off on it.
I also ordered a missing body panel and the lift lever arm for the mower deck.
