  • Cat 396 Bucket Cylinder Boss

    Looks Ike someone welded it once before and only welded over the crack and didn't cut it out first. It's so close to the pin boss, I not sure yet what's the best way to go about this. New pin and bushing not going to be here till next week so I have some time to fiqure this out I guess.

    Hard to see with those photos .This is where the dump cylinder attaches to the bucket? Any damage to cylinder rod? Getting new bushings for 2 ears and rod end?

      It's for the clam where it cylinder attaches to the bucket.
      It's a part of the bucket structure. It's some kind of crap dealer installed Bucket. Sorry for the small pic. Hard to get them under 2mb without chopping them. I'll try to get better ones tomorrow.

          Looks like they wasted welding rod on that repair. Would've done just about the same by stretching some used bubble gum across it.

            What I would do is to cut the hold boss out of the old ear and fab a new ear of the same thickness, cut new ear to fit then cut in the the old boss with the new bushing in it. Vee the new ear leaving a 1/4" gab to the main body. Put the new pin in and measure the best that you can, tack the new ear and the boss with the new pin in. Weld strong backs from ear to ear and weld with a little preheat. Let it all cool, cut your tacks from the boss and strong backs and remove the pin, reassemble with the right measurements and tack the boss and strong backs back on with the new pin in place and finish welding, let cool and go home.

              Should put all new bushings in including rod end to keep every thing tight and straight.I would also connect rod when lineing up to make sure nothing else got bent ,easier to fix before welding
