I may have to contemplate replacing ALL the hoses on the mini hoe. . Bucket raised & line to bucket dump cylinder springs a leak. weight of the bucket emptied the cylinder via the leak. Tomorrow I'll mix up some degreaser.. Today I'm just over it... I did replace the hose with one I had to finish up the project. It's too long though will still need to replace it.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

from what Ive worked with,unless it's a large diameter hose, surplus center has some great deals on pre-fab hydraulic hoses..measure up what you need and go the website and see what they have in stock..usually have pretty good selection of lengths close to what you need..for my loader I have some hose slack coiled up and radius bent under the valve area and around the front axle area due to hoses that are too long.,no big deal..one hose I did have to shorten, I simply took it to the local New Holland dealer in town and they shortened it and re-crimped an end onto it..cost about the same as two more hoses from surpluscenter.I always get some spare fittings when I order from them,makes the UPS charge worth it to have stock in the shop for quickie repairs and to build with FWIW

I recently had one of those showers too. I tightened everything up where I thought it was all coming from, started it up and then found out where it was really coming from! A local NAPA has been making replacement hoses for me. Its about an hour round trip instead of waiting a week for somebody to ship it. while the new valve from Surplus Center has solved the problem of stalling the motor when I go to turn the Cadtrack, It now demonstrates something new when it refuses to change direction until the lever is pulled several times. I won't be doing any more business with them as they have assured me that the valve is working properly.....blah blah blah two sides to every story, blah blah some more. Drama. It does not work to my expectations...

U sure thats the right replacement valve you ordered for the machine Kevin?
a replumb of the whole machine might be in order if you can't make sense of the way it's plumbed now..
-hard to troubleshoot when gawd knows what the previous owner did to it..and we got snow on the way too
