Double ended steering Cyls

Recommended Posts

I got two double ended steering cylinders I pulled off of a CAT 420 backhoe, basically a ZF front axle.

Anyways they are 2.5" body's, 10" stroke and 1.5" chrome.

The tie rod ends are still tight and the new boot seals and clips can be bought from CAT or any ZF dealer.

Asking 350.00 for the pair and I have all the parts numbers for the seal for TREs.

I have pics but can't load them up till I resize them. Pm me and I can text them to ya.

Any idea on an orbital to run one of these in the front?

Valve to run them. Based on the buggys I've been on the trails most use the smallest style snout on the orbital vavle and seem to steer fast or as fast as needed, and they ( Sean Haluch, Miguel, Adam Bates ) all run 2.5" double ended cylinders.

It's not the size of the valve itself it's the size of the snout or the front half of the valve aka the snout that meters the fluid and speed from lock to lock. 

That's what I picked up when I worked for CAT, I've seen 966 loaders with the same style valve just a 8" long snout. 

And yes they turn fast, from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock your lock to lock.

So to answer your question I would say an average Charlynn open center valve would push plenty of fluid for these to work. But maybe call to PSC or another company might lay it out better for you John.

31.4 cu/inch of internal oil volume inside that ram.  

How many turns lock to lock do you want? That will dictate what orbital valve you need.

Not really sure. I want streetable turns. So somewhere between 4 and 8?

You'll want 4 (not 8).  Char Lynn 120cc will get you 4.3 lock to lock, but that's for the full 10". If you can't take 10", it will obviously be less lock to lock.

Perfect, thanks.

 

I will avoid all the normal homo NEOW comments.

 

I have a front 5t rockwell, should do more than 38 degrees of steering.
