Well finally got the cylinders on the little Dig-it 188T (ingersol 6018)torn down(caps and rings were sized) and what I have now is a mess..No one in my area seems to be able to locate a repair kit for these guys and I just cant afford to replace them..Think I will post a few photos and see what you guys think.Looks to be a 2 1/2 in bore with a 1in rod as best I can tell.bladder_zps03jtigfl.pngIMG_20160307_132319_zps9z63cixu.jpgcyl3_zps8q0kjwga.jpgIMG_20160307_132534_zps4iuhcqfk.jpg

It's hard to tell from your pics, but can you clean/de-burr the metal parts and then just buy the O-Rings & seal?

Any decent hydraulic shop could find them for you, but most don't want to be bothered with having to measure for what you need.  It's a shame businesses can't trouble themselves for the guy just needing low $ parts.  They only want the big pay jobs these days.  I know 2 places local to me that will go out of their way to find what I need.

Most bearing supply / power transmission supply houses stock O-Rings and seals.  ...Someplace that does hydraulic repairs or large-truck repairs may be helpful.

 

The lip-type seal is actually a wiper to keep dirt OUT.  ...It is no different than any automotive or small engine oil seal.  ....Contrary to popular belief, it does NOT under high pressure, unless the O-Rings fail.

 

If you can bring those parts with you, and/or get some accurate measurements of the bore & rod, someone should help you.

 

If you can get accurate measurements, you may be able to find a source online.

If you can get a machine shop to mic the bore and ram for you, Baum Hydraulics in Omaha, NE will have the parts.They have a web site, but with the voluyme of stuff they handle kind of hard to find your way around.  No Min order either and prices are very reasonable.  Good luck Dave.
