Hi I have a Ford 550 digger, and the jack / stabiliser ram has sprung a leak, this is due to the external pipe light that runs the length of the ram for closing the ram rusting through. Question is how to replace the pipe? I have a new pipe and could weld it on and use industrial chemical metal the ensure a seal, dose anyone have tips or ideas on a better way to do this repair, I am interested in any alternative means of repair.

I have only just noticed your post, i would maybe re post it in the backhoe loader forum, there was a thread for re sealing a 3cx rear leg that i did, alternatively you ould just get anoyhrper complete ram, there are several ford being broken up on Ebay at the moment. Good luck.
