Too bad your machine shop guy didn't at least measure the shaft & use a thread pitch gauge so you would know what to look for.
Guy at the parts store did.

I'm trying not to hold out too much hope. This fukking disaster has already backed me up so much........

There are a lot of female ends in the chart. You'll need to take a few measurements and enter them in the drop down menus, but I'd bet you can find a match or something that will work with a little machining.
Dadgum if some of those don't look exactly like what I need.

I'll go measure it myself tomorrow, just in case my parts guy doesn't come through.

Part of the problem is, I'm not too good with truck and machinery repair. I can remove and install stuff, but I don't know chit about terminology and such.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


The chart I posted if you begin to enter information in the fields it will drop down a tutorial explaining the methods of measuring your existing part.

For instance in the box labeled "Length-Inch" enter "2.0" and the page will change to the tutorial and also display all the ends that are 2" long.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


Piece of cake, and I guarantee the parts are available.

Measure the threads, measure the lengths and do what tgeb says, and you will have your equipment back up and running.



Napa Auto Truck HD parts should have what you need. Most any tractor store should be able to get them. McMaster Carr as suggested above is another source.

Make sure if there are grease fittings you routinely grease them too.

Edit: Year, make, and model are always good to provide when asking for help.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


If that shank diameter is more than 3/4" I think it's going to be difficult to source. And if that stud is tapered it's going to be even harder to find. But you might be able to make something that can work. As previously suggested, need dimensions.

You're correct. The taper is what was the biggest issue.

The pin coming out of the ball joint goes through a plate welded to the frame. If it doesn't sit at the exact right height, it'll throw the angle of the cylinder off.

It looks simple at first glance, but it might not be.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


If you can't find a direct replacement then something like this type fitting could be fitted:

A tapered bolt could be fabricated and the assembly shimmed accordingly to fit the bracket on the machine.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


Thank you all for your assistance. The link above, for truckcomponentsonline, is where I found the correct part number, but I had to search around for the part.

Shank diameter is over 1", so moog and most other places had nothing. It's evidently a Ford F-800 part from the '80's.

Stumped the guy at the parts store, but the guys at CT came through.

Here it is, got one on the way.

Thanks for all the help. Been a frustrating couple weeks.

Good to hear . Yeah, once you have a part number the rest is easy. Pretty pricey on that though. Did you try ebay? That's the first place I look, with hopes that someone has one that's been laying around and just wants to blow it out.

Re: CAT Vs Brand X


I had to determine that the brake parts on my 50s Yale forklift were from a 50s Ford f2, most engine accessories are from a Chrysler car or dodge truck. Napa has been great at taking old part numbers off old parts and cross referencing them.

Saw that one at Amazon, but it said "Currently Unavailable". I also found the one at Global Parts, but I was a little leery of that one. Don't know where they come from.

I was just happier than a hooker on payday to find one for 100 bucks.

Another 200 for repair of the cylinder. The other end bent, so he's gotta machine a new ram.

So it's actually coming out pretty close to tree-fitty. Cool.
