I think I saw this kinda mod further back in the thread, but after playing around with my new-to-me LT-40 hydraulic, I sheared off of the lower hydraulic fittings on the loading arms by letting them fall to the ground (I think a block of wood down there interfered with their path). Unfortunately this meant replacing both velocity fuse fittings to the cost of $40.

To prevent breaking the expensive fittings again, I added an extender between the cylinder and velocity fuse fitting. Now (hopefully) if something does happen again, it will be the $3 extender that shears, and not the fuse fitting.

Somewhere back up in this topic Bibbyman re-threaded a broken velocity fuse.

Like finding a needle in a haystack! I'd enjoy seeing that. I don't know how it could be done, since there's only about 3 threads left on the fitting, so not much room for it to thread and seat in the cylinder.  smiley_huh

I did not find the pictures in Bibbyman's gallery so apparently I was mistaken about which member it was.  Anyway the fuse was chucked up in a lathe and turned down so that it could be threaded.  I ain't looking through the haystack.  ;D

@jovol  Well it was Bibbyman and I did find it, except it was not in the "mod" topic.  Just call me the "needle in a haystack man".  ;D   Also read the next few replies after that Reply #68.

I knew he would have had to of turned it!  :D I'll hang on to my broken fitting in case I befriend a generous machinist in the future.
