580k case backhoe

Ernest I have a hydraulic stabilizer that is leaking externally. I found seals online, also a gland but not sure what that is? How hard is it to put seals in?
Thanks,
Ernie

alrman Ernie,
is your machine a centremount or side shift?

The gland is the nut at the end of the cylinder.
To undo this you need a 'C' spanner to fit into the holes in face of the glandnut, they can be quite stubborn at times, you may need some heat on it - Then loosen the hyd. line at the closed end of the cyl. & pull the rod/piston assy from the cyl. Next you need to hold the rod in something solid (try putting it back into the leg assembly)& undo the piston retaining bolt.
I usually use 1"drive sockets for this (3/4" drive just flexes to much) & 6' pipe!
Heat is often required to loosen the loctite on the bolt.
Sounds easy doesn't it! - Good Luck
