Smile Want to rebuild hydraulic tilt cylinder on my ml 106 loader!

Would like to rebuild my leaking hydraulic cylinder on my ML 106 loader. Can anybody steer me toward a rebuild kit and also offer me basic instruction/tips for completing the task? I need to quit wasting money on hydraulic oil...
Appreciate the feedback...Shane, Vacaville, CA

I've repaired both curl cylinders on my 30 year old Yanmar. After the local hydraulic shop charged me $165 for the first one, I did the other one myself. Its simple.

You might need to buy the specialized wrench to get the end cap off. But if it is suitable to loosen with a pipe wrench:

* I bought the HF 36" aluminum pipe wrench, for this plus I need it for plumbing repairs. It still needed a cheater pipe over it to loosen the end cap.

* Leave the opposite end of the cylinder attached on the tractor - to resist your turning force.

* Don't drop and scratch the piston rod as you pull it out.

* Disassemble the piston head from the rod. It's simply bolted on.

* Take all the removed parts to your local hydraulic shop. They will provide the seals you need, likely under $10 ~ $15. These are nearly certain to be universal generic seals, not proprietary.

* Reassemble.

* You just saved $150.

Default Good idea...

Thanks California...I just called the Mahindra dealer and they want between $60 and $80 for the cylinder repair kit. I'm inclined to take your advice...get the thing apart and find a hydraulic repair place here in Vacaville, CA. They want $455 for a new one so $15 and my sweat sounds a lot better...thanks again!
