    Jcb 8018 help needed to pipe up for breaker

    Hi all

    I've got a 2005 job 8018 which I need to fit a breaker too.
    It has the pedal for aux but I had a look earlier at the pedal and there is no rod on it compared to the other pedal.
    I'm planning on using the rod from.the other pedal as I don't use it but really need help installing the pipe work.

    Any advice is appreciated
    Thanks

    Is the other pedal for off set ?

    Do you have the valve section in the block for the aux service, and its just a case of connecting it up ?

    Hi Muz

    The other pedal is for moving the dipper arm left and right (probably what you said) I've not looked at anything all I've don't so far is taken the side panels off that's when I saw the gas struts so at the weekend I'm going to lift the cab back. Hopefully revealing the valve block.

    I'm hoping it is a case of just connecting some pipes. I was going to go to my local hose maker and just get them to make some up and then I'll strap the to the arm while the breaker is on then take them off.

    I'll try and get some pictures when I tilt the cab at the weekend. I'd have thought it would be there as the pedal is there strange the rod is missing though. What about connecting it to the other pedal ?

    Update.

    I've lifted the cab and the pedal that I thought was seized has a metal locking plate. Where the rod should go to is moving and on turn moving another arm on the valve block. All looking good so far. On the valve block It has 2 blanking plugs so I've took them out and can show my local hose maker what ends to put on. Hope that helps someone going through the same thing

    Now I've another few questions is the auxiliary single acting? ( I believe is it and a splitter would be required for say a tilt bucket). The next is which is the flow line and return line.

    Yeah they only work one way so it wont work a tilty bucket. I bought a tilty bucket for mine and it would tilt but wouldn’t hold it in place when you took pressure off. It didn’t bother me as i have a JCB 19-c that works it fine but would of been good to have it work on both.

    use the service to feed a one way/single acting cetop 3 and change flow direction with that on a button .... pedal still controls the flow
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Right so I've now been to have pipes made up and the bloke has said that the return needs to go to the tank. Not the valve block. I've taken 2 blanks out and thought I'd just need a flow and return to that. Anyone know where to T into to get back to the tank as I'd imagine if they put a valve block on they would put somewhere for the return.

    There will be a return coming from the block. Often its a different style of hose because it runs at lower pressure and is usually one with the largest bore also, if your system has an oil cooler, often the return (or part of it) will pass through that too before returning to tank, which may help you locate it. Also the setup you describe will only give you single acting one way flow just to be sure.
