    Well the engineers who designed the 400E loader for the 4044M JD tractors made a brain fart. The fittings on the up/down rams are pointed towards the engine. And the brace for the kit is millimeters from the rams. As soon as some dinky operators decide to drop the bucket too far and then turn it torques the kit, and snaps the return (down) fitting right off.

    So today.... since the rams are in Tennessee... and holy shit... they cost 1000 plus shipping just cuz they are John Deere green.

    So I spent most of the day welding and subsequently chasing down leaks. And re-welding the broken fitting back on until the new one shows up.


    It dont look pretty by any means. But its holding back some serious hydraulic pressure.

    I then made new hoses and flipped the rams 180 degrees

    That is what I did for most of the day.

    Sometimes I think the engineers make things where the average person would rather take it to the dealer than try and fix it, good job fixing it :thumbsup:

    On top of working 40 hours a week in the machine shop my wife and I own a small convenience store. Got a man coming by today to change out the evaporator in our cooler. This one served us well, it’s been in since 1998.

    If I had a lathe and knew how to use it, I'd have a massive amount of ATF form 1 suppressors.

    If I had a mill, I know I'd have to make a few of these and end up in prison.

    Removed the measurements, so I hope it's OK to post.

    A lady brought two of these chairs by and ask for me to weld the broken wires. They don’t look safe or comfy.
