Is there a good hydraulic leak stop out there?

Post by bolt37 » Wed May 20, 2020 7:07 pm

Is there a good hydraulic leak stop out there? I have some cylinder seal leaks, nothing terrible, but enough to try something before pulling all the cylinders and hoses and everything for rebuilds, which would cost more than I can afford.

I trust you guys more than Googling, as this forum has been a great and trustworthy group!

Any suggestions?

In a nut shell, no. Nothing is going to seal a leak with a couple thousand pounds of hyd pressure behind it.
