Question about Heavy Machinery
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.
