Generator slide hyd cyl leaking

My 2000 exec.has a Generator slide hyd cyl leak at the shaft seal.
Hwh cylinder. I called them and they said it would take up to to weeks for a call back from tech or parts as they are real busy.
Does any one know if there is a seal kit available for this or an aftermaket cyl that will work?

Slide Seal

Any good hydraulic shop will be able to rebuild that for you...about 30 minute job. Have plugs ready to put in lines when you remove them so you don't introduce a lot of air into the system.

Here's a thread about your issue
https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/gen...ak-499545.html


Long story short is to remove and take it to a hydraulic shop and they can fix.

Or remove it and take it apart yourself and just take the end gland to the shop and have them match the seals. These older units should have standard dimensions and easy to match.





FWIW, I had a leaking cylinder on the backhoe/tractor. I had ordered a seal kit, readily available and was in the process of replacing the seals but I screwed one of the small stem seals. Took it to the nearby hydraulic shop, that I've used for hoses etc and showed it to one their tech, he pulled a seal off the shelf and put it in without any effort at all.

You can rebuild it yourself, but you need some type of seal tool to install the seals.

The part # would be handy as the hydraulic shop might screw mine up not knowing the correct seal. My seals were totally destroyed and I have nothing to go on. Seems HWH may have run a special seal as these don't look like any hydraulic seals I've ever replace in other cylinders.
Mine has two seals or a seal and a shaft wiper

It took HWH a week to return my call to buy a part. They are either under a lot of demand or they fired all their employees. In either case in the week I sorted the problem out and saved $200 plus.

I don't know the part number for the seals, but it took the shop three tries to find a seal that worked.

I replaced both seal and shaft wiper today with common hand tools.
I ordered the seals from McMaster -Carr

Seal part# 9505K22

Wiper seal Part# 1490N14
About $30
Works like a champ now.
Reservoir takes 2 qts Dextron III
HWH never called me back, so I figured it out in the interm, saved me many $
I have a extra seal and wiper if someone needs them. I bought 2 in case of damaging them when installing
