Hi Everyone! This is my first post, I'm so glad I found this forum because I just bought my first skid steer this week and have a ton of questions. I bought an older Case 1737 and have just gone through it and replaced radiator hoses, fan and alternator belts, changed the oil, put on some tire chains, and topped off the hydraulic fluid. The only problem now is that the right lift cylinder leaks pretty bad. The guy I bought it from gave me two seal kits for the lift cylinders but I'm not sure how to install them. It looks like there are four holes in the end of the leaking part where the gaskets go, do I need a special wrench to take apart the lift cylinder to rebuild it with the seal kit? Has anyone done this before, how difficult is it?
