Has anybody used this Magister cylinder for a cat 1 top link on their series 1 or other cat 1 setup? It has SAE ORB ports, rather then NPT or British, and the length seems perfect for the series 1 with Kens extended hook. The only oddity is that the pin sizes are 1", but I can probably fix that with a bushing?

They also have one with a 2.5" body that might work. (The 2" one is currently out of stock.)

Everything else that I found either had the British threads or was a bit longer than I wanted. I could have one custom made, but these two options look promising.

What is your experience or thoughts on the above two cylinders?

(Reading this, maybe the admins should move it to hydraulics.)

Check Surplus Center.... they have Top Link Specific cylinders for a really fair price... You could also look at Fimic, they may have them available too.

Thanks. I checked surplus center, but their cylinder has the bspp port, whereas the magister has ORB ports. I couldn't find any cylinders on the fimic sit with a swivel ball end.

I put this on from a company on the net out of Ohio....has the equalizer and the hoses are together....the British thing was not a problem as tightening up the threads they will mate. I did come back and add the 1/4" lines for more flexibility. The connecting rod type fittings gave more versitility and the cylinder has the regular top length balls and size. If you want the name P.M. me a Ill send you a copy of my receipt....

I wouldn't use a magister cylinder....use one with the balls right model....
Something looks funky about the Magister, pbut I don't know enough to put my finger on it.

i have the 2x8 version waiting in a box....

This one is exactly the length that I need, about an inch shorter than the manual OEM link. I wish that it had orb ports, but other than that, it looks perfect.

Worst case, have the Lock-Out block reported, or add adapters to the block to fit up to the fittings you want. Fittings are readily available on line or at your local parker store, search "parker store global locations". they are not cheap, but they will have exactly what you want.

Curious what's wrong with BSPP threads? Adapter fittings in a every shape and color are available to mate right up to it.

Nothing - Somehow, I had myself convinced that they are hard to find. I found the adapters that I need at surplus center.

Discounthydraulichose.com is another good source with a good selection of fittings and adapters, that surpluscenter doesn't have.
