    I have Kobelco SK300LC Serial number YCUO312 - Hydraulic pump part number is 2437U472F3 and need to get about 200 more hours out of my excavator and the job will be done, so I am willing to put a used one in. Then i will sell the excavator :)

    Anyone know of a wrecked Kobelco, new Holland etc that has this pump that I may be able to buy 2nd hand?

    If it has a Kawasaki pump those can be fixed resonably

    It does in fact have the Kawasaki pump, I have been pricing out parts and just the seals alone are $700, we know it needs cylinder rebuild (or other bearings) as there are brass shavings in the hydraulic oil. Who would you reccomend for parts kits?
    and thanks for the reply!

    A used pump will cost 3-6 thousand if your pump is not completely trashed you can get it repaired either way you will spend a lot of money to get it fixed so you can forget a few hundred dollar repair. just remember it is scrap metal without a pump

    I dont expect a few hundred, i just wanna try keep it under 4k :) (if im doing repairs to this one) I imagine it needs to have bearings and cylinders replaced/relined etc. Brass shavings in the hydraulic oil lead me to believe its nit a simple fix

    Brass could be travel and swing. Are either giving you trouble?

    Have you checked your case drain filters. Have you pulled your tank filter?
