Subject: RE: Case IH 183 cultivator Cylinder

It depends whether or not you're good with a welder. Our side dress bar is made from several 183's welded together and yes, they're a pain. If we are in a hurry, we have plasma cut a square hole over where the end of the cylinder lines are and gotten wrenches in that way, then welded the plate back into place.

To remove it as manufactured, you need to remove the hydraulic tees where they go into the main bar and attach a string to it for retrial later. Unhook the far cylinder as well as the near one and pull the entire works to one side. Don't forget to attach a rope to the far cylinder for retrival as well. If it folds over as designed, it's a lot easier.

One section of our bar does not (by design), so we have to remove one entire side of the bar for cylinder removal.

As a side note when looking, Cyclo's of that era also used the same cylinders.

As our bar gets older, we are converting the 183 style cylinders to a newer style with a slightly different linkage and the round donuts that hold the cylinder centered in the bar versus the 183 style flop over linkage. This allows us to use cylinders we have lying around but we lose the 5% end of row lift (which we don't use on that part of the bar).

Part of our bar had a major design flaw we nor the man that built it for us knew about at the time. We spent a few years bending and breaking cylinders before we figured out exactly what was wrong.
