    I have an EX60G. I would like to add a thumb. It doesn’t have any auxiliary hydraulic valves. Is there anywhere I can tap into to add another valve?

    Not sure which model you have but the dash 3 has an option spool.

    Okay thanks I will have a better look. It is an EX60G. Not sure what number it is. Bigger issue is one of the track adjusters piston will only come out about 2 inches. First question is does it just slide in that tube. Does that tube have any holes in it. We cannot get it out. Previous owner drove it through wet concrete and didn’t wash it out.

    I'm thinking a 60g is a dash 1 machine. Can you post a picture of the machine? Probably the quickest way to tell what model it is.

    Good day
    Here are a couple of examples of track adjusters most if not all will allow the piston to be pumped out of the jacket provided that you remove the track, any grease that leaks from the jacket will require welding or replacement.
    Hope it helps you
    Kind regards
