I've searched everywhere I can think of for schematics and diagrams for these old dump hoists like what is on my '46 COE but have found nothing. Anybody out there know of a place I could find info on it? It has leaky seals and would like to replace them (I have a place that claims they carry any seal needed) but would like to know what I am looking at before I dismantle this thing! Thank you one and all!
Thank you Paul. The cylinder appears to be packing but the control valve is a 7/8" sliding rod that directs the hydraulic fluid and it slides through a seal on each side of the valve body. Those are the seals I was referring to. I appreciate your thoughts though.
