With the enormous amount of work to be done on the property I can not imagine getting it done by hand. Although working on the loader is taking up time and resources I could be putting into the land, it would be at a snails pace in comparison.

I got a bunch of other stuff done I have not listed yet, including pressure washing two inches plus of oil buildup off the rear axle. I got a handful reaching up there. The steel brake line is crushed with vise grips at the right rear wheel, likely because that wheel cylinder was leaking. So I took a measurement to replace it. I also gathered other information. The plate that locks the lower articulation pin nut in place is missing, and the nut is backed off a little. Terex wanted a crazy amount of money to have one made, theyíre out of stock. I will make one. I said I was a machinist right?? Itís a 3-1/2Ē hex with two 5/8-11 bolts holding it, and I will Locktite this time.

Also brought the batteries down to charge and check out, one would start my truck, the other just clicked. And the battery box hinged cover is badly bent and wonít close. I got it half way cut off, the inverter kept burning fuses. I will figure out a way for next time, I want to bring it down and beat it back into shape enough to close. Itís one piece with what the batteries sit on, and that is large and cumbersome. Not even sure how much would have to be removed that way, I will just attach it with bolts and a plate. One of the rear articulation pins is partially out too, it broke away from the plate with bolts securing it in place. On the other pin they bent up a metal plate and welded it on to trap the pin in there when that happened, I measured it so I can duplicate it. Also removed the broken off mounting plate and brought it home to clean up.

I replaced the hose carrying fluid to the front master too, you can see it in the first picture describing the manifold. Two blue hoses, I had already replaced the other one. I alternated dropping beetle killed trees, and working on the loader. But gave the loader more time. I didnít hear a peep out of neighbors until a chainsaw yesterday. Had some rain I sat under the canopy for, nice dust control.

Also measured and took notes to build something to lift the wheels using a chain hoist, gonna build a tripod to hang the hoist from. And checked lug nut size, there are thirteen nuts that take an 1-1/8Ē socket. I got a lot done this last trip, and lined up more to do before I go back up.

I just ordered the missing part from the steer cylinder kit, and o rings for the steering manifold assembly & unloading valve. Also some fuel line. Because I'm waiting on this stuff I went ahead and built a contraption to lift a wheel off so I can get to the wheel cylinders. My gantry crane is too big to haul.

Finally got back on this last week, installed left steering cylinder, spool valve, and steering hydraulic manifold assembly & unloading valve. Except I was short three o rings for the spool valve hoses, ordered those yesterday. They were in stock in California. So couldnít start it because of the three hydraulic lines not connected, came home with a list of what to bring next time. So next time iíll go up ready to work on the wheel cylinders, thatís the last major thing. Got a few small things lined up too.
