Just dont have the money for new and I am hoping someone has something that might work laying around they aren't using.Best I can tell they at 4in and the Cyl housing without the mount is 17in 24 in retracted with mounts with a 2 in rod..I am willing to modify something to work..and it doesn't have to be pretty..just buildiable...I really really need to get this tractor going as fast as I can. Thank you all!

 

Please forgive crappy weld job..I have done everything I can think of to keep this cap in place with no success.

We didn't have any of the Dig It cylinders but maybe if you get get the eye sizes , center to center but open and retracted it might help finding something that would work

You really should stick with the same extended/retracted length to keep the full reach in both directions.  I have a couple cylinders off of an old Lull in my shop.  I can measure up the length of the cylinder body and see if one would work for you.  They look to be about the same diameter as yours.  They are heavy and wouldn't be cheap to ship though.

The length on just the cyl is around 17in without the mounting eyes..its right at 24in retracted with the eyes.If you have one/two even close to that please let me know what you might want for them.

I just went to check them out and they are either buried under/behind a bunch of scrap steel, or they were scrapped.  I won't know until our next scrap run.  The cylinders have been stored behind our scrap pile in the shop for years.  I'll see if I can do some digging Monday and find them.

A place I worked at years ago had the same problem with a excavator cylinder. They ended up welding long nuts to the side of the cylinder near the top, made a top plate to bolt down on top of the cap to keep cap in place as the treads inside were no good anymore. Worked good

I think the nuts were for extending treaded rod, they were about 2 inches long

Those are called "rod couplings" if you end up looking for them.  We use them at work when we have to run more than one length of threaded rod to a hanger.

I still have the Lull cylinders, but they are way long.  The cylinder body is 55" long.  Even longer to the eyes.  I haven't looked at them in years.  I forgot how long they were.  I do have two of them if anyone has a use for them.
