Default Gen tray ram

Help please. My gen tray ram is leaking and my mechanic and their local hydraulic shop can’t seem to find seals to rebuild the unit. Does anyone know either the correct parts/seals to rebuild the ram, the actual manufacturer and/or part number for the ram itself, or if the ram is an HWH part?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

I don't think the ram is an HWH,i have not rebuilt one in ages,but it was a very common and easy/cheap seal kit.

I'm surprised they don't have seals for it. I had my 83 repaired and they didn't act like it was anything unusual. Maybe try another shop?

I am surprised too, considering all the similar “common seals” posts in other threads. I am also surprised no one ever seems to post the parts or part numbers needed. Will try and find a different shop.

The guy that did mine just pulled the seals out of a little bin with no numbers. Almost like he carried them n his pocket.

I had mine rebuilt this summer at the local hydraulic shop. It was around $80 and no big deal to them.

I rebuilt my ram last year. I took the o-rings and seals in to the local shop to match them up. They had them all on the shelf. Easy one day job including new hoses.

Well, I thought I’d post a follow up to my original post. I finally got around to disassembling the ram to see if I could locate the correct seals. To my dismay, the machine shop to which my coach shop took my ram, buggered it up a bit. For the record, don’t: hammer on the spherical ends, they will distort; use a pipe wrench on the end cap, that’ll distort also. Fortunately, some delicate tapping got the sphericals working again, and some more tapping and judicious hone usage ironed out the cylinder distortion. Double fortunately, all the metal bits, especially the piston and rod were in really good shape. A quick trip to my local O-Ring guy and 5 minutes later I had 2 sets of seals. Everything went back together very easily with the exception of the piston seals. They are very stiff and hard to muscle into place. Also, I thought I’d post for the record the parts list and associated parts numbers, also a source for the seals. Disclaimer: these parts are for the hydraulic ram on a 1983 pt35. Not sure where else this ram was installed.

(1) H70218 end plug outer o ring
(1) HB90218 end plug outer backup ring
(1) L18700750312 shaft seal
(1) WAN-0.75 shaft wiper (end cap)
(1) H70109 piston/rod o ring
(2) L18701125 piston seal

Awesome info! Mine is leaking a bit profusely now and I need to get under there and fix it.
