I am very new to using tractors, backhoes and now posting threads in forums. As a matter of fact this is my first one.
I have a JD 210c loader/backhoe and I broke the rod coming out of the cylinder attached to the dipper. Not sure if it is my inexperience or not but everyone I talk to says they have never seen that before.
Anyway, I found the following thread (http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...oe-loader.html) to be extremely helpfull. I have the cylinder out of the machine and I was trying to take the nut off the end of the cylinder to remove the broken rod but it won't come out. I have the cylinder in a chain vise (not too tight) and the nut spins easily but will not thread out.
I was wondering if it there is a retainer ring holding it in and needs to be popped/pryed out? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I expect to be posting a lot more threads as problems arise.
