  • line bore job

    I have an line bore job coming up next week. It will be the first time i have used my set up since converting the thing to hydraulic drive. My new to me truck has auxiliary ports on it.
    The job will not be any thing to major my understanding is that it will be pivot points on some kind of lift.
    I didn't know if you fine folks would be interested in something like that or not.
    If there is interest i will try and take pics and post the job if no one is in to it then i wont wast my time.

                    Yes, monte, somebody offers to post pictures of a process you don't see too often, first thing you can think of is some BS.

                    I can recall, a long-time member, what board I don't remember, probably SFT, a guy setting up a line-bore, to repair a wobbled out center pivot on an center-pivot articulated cat loader. As I recall, welded in bearing mounts, used a screw-conveyor gearbox, held it all up with a chain-fall. Cheap, fast, efficient.

                      I too would like to see pictures. Couple times over the years I've turned cranes over to line bore guys to repair the heel pin holes in the boom. The operation would be done over a weekend, so I never stuck around to see how it was done. Would be very interesting to see, with detailed informations of what is being done!

                        I recall, a few years ago, there was a guy here who did a very professional, home-grown line-bore job. Posted pics on one of these boards, it was JHall if I remember correctly. Center pivot on an articulated Cat loader. Mounted bearings top and bottom, had a 2" boring bar fabbed by a local machine shop, held it up and fed it in with an overhead chain fall, turned it with what looked like a Dodge Screw-Conveyor drive. Could'a been posted on SFT, do a search.

                          Recalling it now, it was either username "JHall" or "Jeff", depending on the forum, do a search monte, this is amazing work, you yourself wouldn't have any concept.
