Hydraulic Valve

Recommended Posts

I have a C-145 that has an oil leak on the hydraulic valve lift valve. The valve works great it just leaks. Any ideas on where I can get new O-rings? Or maybe an alternate approach that I could use to seal the leak?

The only marking that I can find on this valve is "Ward Co". Any ideas on how to better identify this valve? It does not look like the two valves that are shown in the C-145 parts manual.

Any Hydraulic shop should be able to help you, let your fingers do the walking as they say.. The oval seal is just an o-ring that has been in that shape so long that it stays that way.

You can do a little measurement and find o-rings at hardware and auto stores also.

You probably go to a hydraulic shop to make sure that you get o-rings that are compatable with hydraulic oil and of the proper hardness to withstand the pressures in the system.

Shoot Indywh a PM, he is the resident Hyd lift guru, and I am positive he can help you out with the seals.

Must be an early 1980 C-145 with a Sundstrand. (Wheel Horse p/n 106680)

Check with member "kj4kicks" (Eldon) to be sure, but I think THIS KIT on his website should fit your valve. :thumbs2:
