    It’s at C5NN-3N500-C I need along with other parts. Right where number 36 is pointing at in the picture is snapped off on the eyelet. Also missing part numbers 15, 16, 17 and 18. F10FC74D-F896-43D1-8226-451D8DEB8FBE.jpeg

    I know are out in No Man's Land but has to be a Hydraulics shop around. See if they can rebuild what you have, tie rod cylinders can be rebarreled readily and the cylinder rod made by hand of replaceable parts.

    Month later and still haven't found a hydraulic repair shop, all shops are frowning at what I want done and it's as if I'm not worth their time or due to Covid-19 (insert pathetic reason). Fast forward the FEL valve spool has gave me the middle finger and I have no clue what size lines are going on it on feed and return, it needs rebuilt or better yet thrown away with the steel lines are junk and it won't lift the FEL anymore, yes the hydraulic fluid is full. At my wits end with a backhoe I can't find parts for, next to impossible to steer when loaded, and hydraulic shops blowing me off.:mad:

    Next up buy the replacement machine, see what can be utilized off the old one in special projects, junk out the remainder.

    My bad, let me see if England has a few ;)
    About to start looking at Case 580's at this rate of despair. Anyone have a clue on the size of fittings on it namely the bottom ones or GPM on it so I can put a generic in? After all I am still enjoying my workout with the steering on it and don't mind dropping few gallons of hydraulic fluid while digging, adds in the lubrication of getting the dirt dug up. The best feature I like is so much slope in the backhoe I can level it out on the stabilizers and dig at a 22.5 degree angle.
    Close but not it... https://www.ebay.com/itm/293809336652?hash=item446866b14c:g:M88AAOSwlI1fnjUe

    If one were to flare their own hydraulic steel lines of around 3/4 to 7/8 of an inch what brand flaring tool would you use or kit?

    I bought maintenance parts from the Deere dealer, and probably paid a premium. But I want my local guy to stay in business, and want service when I need it. Saving a couple of bucks buying mail order seems short sighted when someday, I need questions answered or someone to come out for a repair.

    If I can find the parts I can fix it and I'm just a blip on the screen compared to these farmers and ranchers out here.

    At least for plumbing, the Rigid tool is fantastic. You just have to figure out what flare type you need. I think there are two.

    Trying to get a 37 degree flare JIC, not a 45 degree flare for plumbing.

    You may want to find someone who has used on. Flaring steel lines takes some effort. That little t handle might make it really hard to flare steel. I am sure copper is no problem.

    I have flared many 5/16" and 3/8" fuel lines over the years and those take some effort to flare. 3/4" and 7/8" will be a magnitude more difficult.

    Spencer Fluid Power in Billings can do any repair related to hydraulics.

    They’ve built several new rods for me, and seem reasonably priced for the work they do.

    The cheapest rods I’ve had done cost $350 each. If I remember correctly, they were 40 mm rod and about 2 feet long.

    I usually feel screwed when I leave a machine shop, but that place has treated me well, and they do quality work.

    I have a small crawler, a Dresser TD7G. I rarely use it in wet conditions because the track frame gets full if fine sand clumps. I wait for dry conditions when I can more easily clean the track frame out. As for sliding, the sideways thing is a bad one. Frozen ground (about four months here) it is real prone to sliding.
    A backhoe, I've had one two wheel drive, 3 four wheel drive. I use a four wheel drive backhoe very frequently. It is very versatile in all weather. Tire chains are a tremendous help in winter, I don't much use them in summer.

    Thanks I will definitely look them up, maybe they can rebuild the controls on the FEL.
