    Contact cherry picker parts in Sorrento louisiana. We use galions down here all the time. They should be able to point u in the right direction.

    Welcome to HEF BIGALBERT. :drinkup

    Is your machine a 150A or a 150F?

    I have ordered custom made push/pull control cables from Cablecraft. If you don't find a source for you control cables, might want to contact them.

    I don't recall a lot about the 150F, but I do recall the 150A were bad about seals for boom control valves going bad which would send oil up through the housing of the control cable and puke oil in the floorboard of operators cab and the brake booster/master cylinders unit going bad leaving you with no brakes. Seems I recall that hydro booster was spendy to work on or replace.

    Hi BigAlbert

    I just bought the same myself, a Galion 150A..I believe it's a 1971. I'm in the process of refurbushing it and found Conractors out of Houston, TX to be a wonderful source of info and parts. Call Phil at : (713) 695-7162. They have provided me with a torque converter rebuild kit, transmission clutch pack's and outrigger cylinder seals (so far.......I'm at the beginning with this old piece of iron). Here is a few pic's of what I did this weekend....resealed front left cylinder, replaced the three hoses to it. Three more cylinders to go.

    Here is their website: http://www.contractorsparts.com/
