Assistor rams for 1963 County Super Six

Postby E1ACharlie » Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:55 pm

Hi folks, I'm wondering if any one can help in my search for assistor rams to fit a 1963 Super Six (based on Super Major, not thousand series). I realise my simplist option may be to have new ones made but I cannot get hold of original drawings/dimensions either to achieve this. I have built a full replica heavy duty linkage on my County as I require it for use with a subsoiler, I've also made all brackets for the rams and bought the valve coupling to connect them, but my search for a ram or even enough information to have them remade has drawn a blank. Can any one help??

Well to update everyone I found a tractor fitted with original assistor rams which the owner kindly allowed me to measure. I took these measurments to my local hydraulic and engineering specialist and had a new pair made to the original design and size which thankfully fitted into my brackets superb and i now have fully operational heavy duty linkage with twin assistor rams...... just goes to show, with enough thought and determination anything is possible!

I'd like to see some pictures, too. I'm sure that the ones on my Super 6 aren't original.
