HUSKEE 22ton log splitter down on power
First time poster. i have a huskee 22ton splitter and i just bought it used. great deal splits wood but no power on logs over 18" diameter(oak ,elm) called factory and the emailed me this.
You can cap the pressure line with a ½” NPT cap, from the pump to the valve, at the valve. Try to start the engine. If the engine starts and runs, the pump is bad.
This is the internal cylinder test.
1) Move the cylinder half way out and then block it off.
2) Then disconnect the steel tube at the rear of the cylinder and connect an air chuck.
3) Disconnect the return hose at the filter and put the hose into a clean bucket.
4) Push the valve handle into the splitting position and blow air (no more than 100p.s.i) into the cylinder.
This test can and should also be performed in the extended and returned positions. If the cylinder pressurizes then the piston seals are still in good working condition. If the fluid in the cylinder is pushed out into the bucket, the cylinder seals have failed or there is damage to the internal cylinder
i was also told to use iso46 i was going to use aw32.Ive cleaned the carb and hydraulis fluid is ok not sure whats in it but! any help would be great.
