      Much better. Or do nothing until evidence of oil sheen, as many hydraulics operate under water with zero leaks.

          I'm hoping there is no oil leak to catch but it would be pretty difficult to do especially if the cylinder goes under water by operator error.

              If cylinder is in good condition I would doubt there would be a issue,my 13’ was installed new in 1990 and outside since then.My best guess on oil loss would be 1/2 of a teaspoon in 32 yrs

                    • I rebuilt the extendahoe hydraulic cylinder on this backhoe and had a hard time getting the pin back in one end of the cylinder and through the other side of the boom. The cylinder is inside of the boom so hard to move it in to position. I turned a quick taper on a piece of metal and tack welded it on the pin. This guides the pin through and a quick wack knocks the taper piece off. A little touch up with a grinder and good to go.

                          Good on you - and THANKS!
                          It takes us about 30 seconds to get too attached. If we could afford it, we would probably end up with dozens of rescues.

                          • I think that if we didn't already have pepper (other black dog in the pics) then we'd be keeping this one. However we've already had one foster fail (pepper) which is plenty enough!

                              • Built a Kayak rack for my neighbor, picked it up from the powder coater and finally finished it today. He was VERY happy with it!
