How to take off front hydraulic cylinder cap to

How do you take off front hydraulic cylinder cap to replace the seal on an old didier log splitter? It has a large cap with what looks like a nut on it. I tried to turn it out but a metal piece came out of a slot on the side of the cylinder. The cap can be pushed out with a large screw driver and hammer only one half inch then stops dead.

TURN THE NUT WITH A PIPE WRENCH AND USE A PICK TO PRY THE REST OF THE RETAINER RING OUT OF THE SLOT. (YOU CAN LOOK INTO THIS SLOT A YOU TURN THE NUT, MAKING SURE THAT YOU HAVE ALL OF IT OUT. AFTER THIS IS DONE THE NUT CAN BE TAPPED OR PRIED OUT. I PREFER USING A BRASS PUNCH TO KNOCK IT OUT.

Check the assembly and note that the ram returns to its position when you activate it EVEN if you release the valve handle. Also make sure you don't have too much fluid in the reservoir.

I have a didier wood splitter and the hydraulic need seals. part number is 200889.where can i get the seals. here is my e mail .harleyman5787@hotmail.com


Most companies have a website that offers repair parts . You'll be asked to enter the model number and serial number to be sure to get the correct parts you'll need. Some websites give you a contact number where you can call them directly to order the parts that you want. Google the manufacturer name. That will put you on the right track. Good luck .Hope this helps you.

Log splitter how to flush hydraulic system


removing hydraulic oil from the system
  • fully extend the cylinder. and shutdown.
  • remove the one end of the hose that is from the rod end of the clylinder.
  • two ways you can go here. either: detach the one end of the hose that is attached to directional control valve and leads to the cap end of the cylinder and place the end in a pale then retract the cylinder by physically forcing the rod back in and all the oil will drain out of the cap end into the pale and the rod end will fill with air.
  • or u could hold the directional valve in the position to let the oil flow back to tank while physically forcing the rod back in. the oil in the cap end will drain to tank and rod end will fill with air.
  • drain the tank of oil.
  • if you wanted to be extra thurough remove the remaining lines and drain the oil out of them.
  • reattach all lines.
  • replace oil filters/strainers. should be one on the return line going to tank. and one on the suction line before the pump. But there may not be a second filter.
  • fill tank with new oil.
  • extend the cylinder using the pump. allowing the air to bleed off the rod side. may chatter at bit while extending. if excessive chatter remove line end to allow the air in the rod side to bleed to atmosphere and continue till fully extended.
  • reattach line. probably a good idea to run a couple cycles.
  • and repeat the entire process for a thurogh flushing.
  • ! note: dont be dissconnecting lines with pressure in them or while the system is running.
  • ! note: be sure to have enough oil in the tank so the pump is not sucking air. this will eventually cause unrepairable damage to pump if sucking air for too long.
  • i just wrote this off the top of my head and ive only worked on industrial hyraulic systems and never on a log splitter before so just keep that in mind. hope it helps

Well , i OWN a modified Didier ; 3pt and is selfpower now . MOST parts available from Tractor Supply . pumps , valves and so forth . Most any industrial hydraulic supply can get seals for cylinder , if it leaks.
Nothing quite like a Didier anymore.

Wood splitter slow action


What's going on is the seals are worn out on the inside and the fluid is bypassing. This is why it is slow.....while operating it, feel it. If it is hot, it's bypassing....the actuator (cylider that houses the piston) needs rebuilt.

If you can get the specs on this, it is really easy to reseal....pressure testing is another thing....take it to a rebuild shop. get this done and it will last another 30 winters!

Good luck!
