    Most any hyd shop worth an ounce of salt can take the measurements of the piston and get you the correct packings. Plus there are books out there for hydraulics that you can look you sizes up and it tells you the o ring and retainers required for said measurements

    Engine shutoff cable question Cummins 8.3

    Loosen the screw and move the wire stop closer to the fuel lever. Mine was like yours and when i pulled my shut off, the wire would come out into the can and dangle.

    Does 5 ton lower door bracket "plate" come out?

    X2 on installing bolts to tighten it up to get the other 2 out and using welding heat to help break them free. Even using a propane torch to warm them up, then spraying them with PB Blaster, or Knock'er loose spray several times, then weld on the washer and nut, then spray again. When you weld...

    5 ton and 10 ton dump bed covers interchangeable?
