    Hey there,

    Ive been getting my 8ft MM1 SEHP ready for the winter and need to replace the angle cylinders. They are 12 x 1.5 - NTPF. Buyers and SAM cylinders seem to be the most common and some sites dont list a brand at all .Ive searched Central parts Warehouse, Mill supply, Angelo's, Northern , Ebay, kaffenbarger , etc.

    The ram's are totally rust and pit free so I was going to rebuild them initially. One of the clevis pins was seized in the base of one of the cylinders so I had to cut it out. 4 days of Deep creep, heat, 5lb sledge and large drift wouldn't budge the left over slug in the hole so I'm just going to replace them. last year I replaced the pump, motor, 3 cartridge valves, 3 coils, and the poppet check valve and spool assembly.

    I began this Year by wanting to tighten up the slop in the blade so I dissembled the plow and welded 1" washers over the oblonged worn clevis pin holes. Since I've gone through 90% of the setup I mine as well buy new angle cylinders too.


    So long story here for a short question :D what cylinders do you prefer and where do you prefer to buy them?

    Your help is greatly appreciated

    Ouch! They guys at ESI Trucks are good. They sell Western, should have a cylinder for you. They have a logo/link at the top of the page.

    They are pricing the wrong cylinder,thats the price of a 56603 O-Ring(new style) cylinder.You need a 20117K NPTF cylinder,under $100 each.

    Thaats what I figured, though the new style is a 16 x 2 right? I told him it was 12 x 1.5 and had a nptf fitting. He confirmed when he looked at the fisher parts list.

    Arc's right.....I only paid $89 per for mine last year. I had the same plow as you, use that part number 20117K to shop around.

    The new ones are still 1.5 x 12 but they are low friction and $100 more than the NPTF,go back with that part # i gave you.

    Reg cab, with a straight pipe and an out dated super chip. Looking to get a newer truck sometime in the near future, 04 -05 maybe. I use it more than I thought i would and the ride is horrendous especially with bags in the front ----->:dizzy: lol

    Though, I cant complain, it's a tough s.o.b. - although I'm also sick of my 3 friends with their Duramax's blinding me with pitch black smoke because im always behind :mad: unless im in my car :D

    I do browse powerstroke.org, one guy in particular helped me a ton last year while trying to hunt down a major problem. In the end after replacing a bunch of stuff it ended up being the CPS :realmad: The truck ran and the tach worked also, after everyone swears neither would - not true at all lol

    Electrical problems always blow. Post some pics up sounds like you got yourself a nice truck tho. I'm 18 so most of my friends are still into fourwheeling there jeeps or driving ricers so I'm pretty much the only one with a diesel besides my buddy with the obs. I just snagged a ez v for my truck from new hampshire friday night for 500 with the controller, should make this winter a little more fun
