    Hmm I don't. The AL540 has 14 GPM in aux flow, which equates to 25 HP.

    I've played around with the idea of adding higher flow hydraulic pump (20-22gpm) or a power pack. The 540 only has 47hp to play with.

    Replace the two four lip rings that are on the locker's piston. I now work for the dealership as a rep, and did the warranty work myself, it took 3.5 hours I believe.

    The piston is in the left axle tube when looking at the pinion. When you get done, reinstall the drain plug and engage the locker for 15 minutes (I used a cable tie). Pull the plug and there shouldn't be very much oil that drains from the axle, only what drained down from the side of the housing. Conversely you can leave the plug out and catch the oil that comes out, that part is your choice.

    Do you have a parts manual to look up the parts? It should start around page 44. If you don't, let me know if your axle tag id ends in 226 or 318 and I can give you the part numbers. If you don't have a dealer...

    No, sorry I don't have any part manual!..
    is it a problem With these axels? It would be Nice if you could give me a price for these parts! I probably need the sealing between the axle and the ''spacer' to'.
    The axle is a ZF AP-R7 15, 1632975, 4472 004 225,

    Best regards
    Thomas

    My computer crashed and I'm in the process of rebuilding it currently so it will likely be a few hours before I can get you a price. 4 month old, $4.1k Mac... Glad I back up, including the wedding I was at yesterday!

    Yours is the only other one aside from mine that I've heard about. My 540 isn't doing it, nor has the 340 repeated it.

    What other seal are you talking about? Between the center section and the axle tube? If so, it's reusable (o ring) so long as you don't damage it.

    Send me your email and I will email you the parts manual.

    Alright, that's no problem.

    I also forgot to tell her to list the standard 2% forum discount. Not earth shattering on $50 in part, I know. Still, it applies to everything.

    Mr. lumberjack, Wouldn't it be wise to have a machine with a full cab when doing tree work (especially in the woods)? I used to do some logging and I have seen what can fall from the sky...it could for sure kill a man.

    Haha "Mr!" I'm 26.

    I don't do logging, but I get your concern. I wanted a 2 post to get under low obstacles in folks yards. Now that we have the 2 post 140, my next AL540 might have cab/air.
