Cylinder Seal Kit Recomendations

Mike Fallavollita I'm curious if anyone out there has recomendations on which cylinder seal kits are worth buying. I have a 1964 530CK and I've pretty much redone all of the hydraulic cylinders in the last 5 years. The first ones I bought were from the Case dealer and a couple of them probably need to be redone again. However, I did a couple this year using kits I bought from Martin Fluid Power and one of them is leaking really badly. Are there any after-market brands worth buying or are the Case OEM kits superior?
thepumpguysc I do nt think its the seals that are the major problem as much as the condition of the cylinders themselves. The slightest nick, scratch, or gouge will cause a leak. I've always found it best to take them to a hydrolic rebuild center and let the pro's try it, that way the liability falls on them if they leak.
I had a customer that had a similar problem, the parts for his cylinders could not be found. I picked up a Northern Tool catalouge and found every one of his cylinders NEW of around 100.00 each.. He was a happy camper..I know this doesnt exactly answer your question but it might give you some ideas.

AJ, look up the numbers on the Case CE site use the numbers at EPS
