Angle cylinder rebuild

I have a Meyer plow with 1 1/2" x 10" angle cylinders. The cylinder on the driver's side is leaking. So today I picked up some seal kits. I did a search for angle cylinder rebuild, and came up empty. Just wanted to know if there was anything difficult about this job, or is it pretty straight forward. Thanks for all your help, eddy611622

cylinder

it's pretty much straight forward just be careful not to bust the packing nut ,and soak the seals in oil for a couple minute's

Angle cyclinder rebuild

Well I think that I bought the wrong seals. I went to NAPA and got (2) aftermarket (S.A.M.) replaces MEYER part# 07705 seal kits. My cylinders came apart easy but the seals where in such bad shape they fell into pieces. I cleaned everything up and started to reassemble. After a few tries I realize that the new set of seals has more pieces and is about 1/2" thicker. Is it possible that my cylinders take a different kit? Maybe a MEYER part# 07831? Tomorrow I can drive to a town about 25 miles away where they have a snowplow shop and get the right ones. Does anyone know what seal kit that I need? Thanks eddy611622

cylinders

how old is the plow ?the real old ones only had about three 3 vees 1top and 1 bottom adaptor you can leave some out to make it but the wiper in the gland nut was a special (thin) one . the older one's with the thin wipers usually had a aluminum nut instead of cast iron .

The plow is on a 1980 cj-5. I would guess it is least 28 years old but I'm not sure. I bought it used in 1990. If I can't get the right kits maybe I should just buy some new cylinders. I've seen them on different web sites for $75 to $80 each. I have already spent a couple of hours messing around with this.

angle cylinder rebuild

Yesterday I ordered a pair of aftermarket cyclinders from Mill Supply for $ 173.63 including shipping. I know that I took the easy way out but I've been down that road before. I only use this Jeep to plow my own driveway and one of these years it might even cost less than to hire it out. I keep telling myself that I enjoy doing it and that I don't have to wait for someone to show up
If anyone needs some old style cylinders for parts if they pay shipping they can have these. eddy611622
