do it yourself and save


before i would pay the dealer that kind of money i would look at doing it myself.

look up a hydraulic hose repair house who can get the rubber parts and then find out what seals and orings you're going to need. remember you'll need orings and seals out of a Buna-N material which is suitable for hydrocarbons and up to 180 degrees F. [ they may already be using a viton seals which is even better due to it's higher temp limits.]

of course there is the junk yard which if you are lucky might have an unit that will fit.

good luck hope you can save the 2600$
Thanks Much!
