    A friend has a hydraulic 9000H and the cylinder is leaking. Does anyone know where You can get a repair kit? Any other suggestions. Jackie B.

    cyl. use to have a life time warranty,if you call them and tell your story they should send you a rebuilt unit but you must send your old unit back or they will charge you full price for the rebuilt one.This was their policy about 5 yrs ago as i had a leaker too...good luck

    I finally found out that they will rebuild your cylinder for $45.00 if the cylinder is the newer style. The newer style is threaded on both ends of the cylinder and the old style is welded. If you have the old style you have to buy a new one. Jackie B.

    MEC does not list the parts as a "rebuild kit" but they have the individual parts that do the same job. On another website, I saw this listing of the part numbers:
    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 needed to rebuild the rebuildable cylinders. It does help if you have the numbers, otherwise they have to find them in the computer.
