    Hi

    I have a older Hustler loader that came with a black hydraulic cylinder and a spare silver cylinder with the word MEC on it of which both are leaking under pressure. The black one is leaking around the rod and the silver one is leaking from the weep hole at the bottom.

    Can these hydraulic cylinders be rebuilt or is a there a parts kit I can buy?

    MEC Hydraulic Cylinder rebuild

    QTY -- Part Number -- Description
    2 ----- 2020 ---- O-Ring
    1 ----- 8860 ---- Seal 1" Polypack (Piston)
    1 ----- 8858 ---- Seal 1/2 Polypak
    1 ----- 8765 ---- O-Ring
    This is the "package" of parts I order to rebuild the rebuildable cylinders. Ron said it does help if you have the numbers, otherwise they have to find them in the computer. I did not ask the new price, the price in Feb. was $16.50 plus Shipping. Total $22.00 Glad I could help, just wasn't sure anyone else would be interested.

    Just a little note, you will have to take the little adjustable valve out of it and watch out for the spring from hell when you unscrew the top.

    I just replaced the seals for a friend last week. His 9000H was seeping a little through the top. Gordy, one of the Mec techs went through it with me first to avoid problems. I ended up calling him again as I put the little seal in upside down. It really was easier than I expected, thanks to Gordy's advice.

    I took my cylinder apart and identified the seals required and made the repairs myself. Tim Dearth

    I can repair the black cly, if the silver one does not have threaded capes on it and it is stainless steel with a black mec decal on it, no luck on building it. the seals listed above will not fit the black cly.

    thanks
