Replace cylinder in bottom boom on hiranger bucket truck

ive heard of folks doing it without a crane but i would not try it , alignment is too critical with getting guides and stops back in and with nothing to move boom that would be too difficult

anyways: suspend boom end with double straps from crane , disconnect hydraulic/electric swivels/plugs at truck end lift end of boom slightly with boom all the way extended straight out , remove acess panel (both sides) at jct of upper/lower boom section . remove C clip one side drive out pin oppisite side (wiggle boom to clear pin) locate stops in lower section boom end unbolt , slowly pull upper boom with crane away take care of hydraulic lines and electric wires set on floor on wood cribbing , locate bottom of cylinder truck end find C clip and pin Might be behind a trim cover that might need to be remove drive out pin also remove bottom cylinder hyd hose connect crane to cylinder end move out a foot or so remove top cyliinder hydraulic hose then carefully slide out cylinider with crane , Note if your valves are not tight and new oil will leak back and cause boom base to sag when you unhook hydraulic hoses , your gonna need to block this up with wood cribbing just in case

reverse removal process to install new one , also i would not just install a new seal (you can) with out having cylinder recromed I'll bet it's rusty thats what tears the seals up
and allways replace entire oil volume in hydraulics your old seal is in old oil not good for the new one

1997 Buick LaSabre 3.8 engine.

About the only thing that would make all 6 cylinders flood out is the fuel pressure regulator or a computer problem. You say you have checked the regulator, so the next step would be to check the injectors for a short to ground.

I had same problem on 1996 gmc. It would start great and run great if you primed it with gas. The fuel pressure was at 55lb. It turned out itwas the fuel pump. The injectors on my truck needed more pressure to start but after starting this was enough pressure to run. I ran my truck for 4 months before the fuel pump quit alltogether. Once I changed the pump it started perfectly. Hope this is helpful. Sudbury, Ontario, Canada

Hard cold start 1997 Jetta gas

can't say for sure but almost all engines that have come to me needing ether to cold start have poor compression. test the compression first.
you sould never need to use ether on a gas engine and very carefully on a diesel when very cold.

1997 Volvo 850- It doesn't get gas when it idles- Current Problem My original problem is the same as the one described below. My husband use the same fix described below and it worked. "Hi: We own a 1997...


Sounds to me like the engine in fact is getting gas when idleing, but not getting enough air. Therefore my 2 cents are on you IACV (Idle Air Controller Valve). It's a small steel cylinder suspended in a rubber piece on the front of your throttle body, and its job is to supply the engine with air when idleing. This is a necessity since the throttle body valve is closed when the gas pedal isn't pressed. Take out the IACV and clean it thoroughly, also make sure that the air going from it is not hindered by any gunk or deposits on its way to the intake manifold.
(You could have someone hold their hand on the IACV when you take your foot of the gas pedal. If nothing happens it's probably dead or stuck. If something does happen there is still a chance that the air is hindered somewhere).

Good luck, let us know if this didn't help!

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running

since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
