I have what appears to be a loose nut where the hydraulic cylinder attaches to the bucket of my H120 FEL. If you look at the photo, it is the nut that also holds the bucket guide bracket. You can see there are no threads showing. The bucket guide bracket is VERY loose - I don't remember it being that loose before (tractor has 290 hrs). The cylinder on the other side has lots of thread showing (other picture).
My problem is when I try to tighten the nut, it doesn't want to budge at all! I even used a two foot breaker. The loader manual says to torque the nut to 110 ftlbs, but I think I will break the bolt if I twist any harder.
Anyone have any ideas? I don't want the cylinder to come off unexpectedly.
