I purchased this backhoe it is in good condition, but had been sitting for a couple years. My question is when I hooked up to the 753 skidsteer. Three or four hozes had cracks. My question is what would be a good technique to replace all of the hoses. I intended to tag each connection and remove the hoses. I wonder if some one has done this and can help. I am just not sure if any unexpected problems. This is probably very straight forward, but I find some of the easiest jobs are the most trouble some.

In the past i have dimply used a centre punch. Mark the fitting on the hose and the fitting it connects to with the same number of dots. VERY easy to work out what goes where then. Just take the old hose and work out what dots match to where and run your new hose that way. Another way is to draw a simple mud map on a piece of paper showing locations.
Cracked hoses are a bit of a risk, hoses do not like being exposed to weather, they crack and eventually fail.

There are several ways I mark the hoses when removing several at a time , a numbered punch set works well , punch say , 1 on the fitting on hose and the fitting where it attaches and so forth , if you don't have a punch set use a center punch , one dot , two dots and so forth , if you can't get to it to puch it a metal scribe with scrathes of 1 , 2 , 3 works , another is different color spray paints , and another is different color plastic wire ties , they sell cheap sets that have all different colors in them , wrap a red on the fitting and a red on the hose end and so forth , sometime I will also draw a diagram of the hose routing if it is a very complicated set up and even take a pic with the digital camera , in the past even with all the prep of marking them I have had times when I got one reversed ------------just because they are cracked on the outer covering doesn't mean they are ready to blow out and may last a long time , if it ain't broke don't fix it sometimes is the best philosify

Some of the lines (the one for the boom swing) have flow resricter's in the fitting's on one end, so make sure they stay inplace. dennis

I use different color plastic ties in different color combinations and place them on both ends or fiittings and one set on the hose so that I know which hose came from where. just 4 colors can be used in two dozen cobinations. Pull them tight and cut the tails off and they will stay on without the worry of being rubbed off. Joe
