I would be a lot more concerned about soldered repairs to an old screen than I would a complete replacement. Repaired spots on an old screen would have relatively small pieces of solder. Metal fatigue is already setting in on an old one (otherwise the cracks/tears wouldn''t be there). Small pieces may break loose. The seam on the new screen is one continuous band of solder. Even if it breaks in 2 or 3 places, the pieces are not likely to be small enough to go anywhere.

I don't have TC on my 48, but I recognise good work when I see it, and the reinforcing idea seems good also. They reckon necessity is the "mother" of invention, and I reckon "poverty" is the father :lol: Great post for the how to :{_}:

My observation is that 'grilling' done here is much more civil than is done on other forums.

Here's where I bought the brass wire mesh: http://www.animadesigns-shop.com/Brass- ... p_747.html

Again, I saw a lady use it on craft projects and thought it to be the same wire count as the fuel bowl strainers (which it is close). So I ordered a roll (12"x36" for $10 + S/H). Thought the price was reasonable.

Nice job on it all Stanton 8) A lot of good ideas come out of trial and error processes.

Now you can start mass producing the sediment bowl screens :)

Great job Stanton. A couple things pop into mind when I started reading. The "little long" feature of the length is a good thing. That little extra is designed to somewhat place pressure at each end so it seals good at the ends against the casting. If it didn't have that tight fit, the fluid would seek the path of least resistance(like most things in life now days :D ). So a little long is much better than a little short. Next, the thing to be concerned with on the replacement screen( for you guys what might try some bigger screens :shock: ) is the "Micron" size. Because the hydraulic fluid usually has some form of medium/high pressure through-out the system, it'd be easy to force small particles through the screen and into different bores where scaring could take place and cause leaks. Most hydraulic filters are like 25 Micron or even down to 10 Micron in sizes. If that brass screen is remotely close, should work fine. If it's bigger in size, it could cause issues later in life. Again, great project and I'm not in any way criticizing but just expressing what little I do know about hydraulics.

Rick

edit: I thought for sure there'd be someone correcting me about the pressure vs vacuum at the screen :roll:

I plan to do that, but will wait until all the comments are in and see how it works. I like the idea of it.

A quick search didn't turn it up anywhere. That'll be up to the moderators... :coffee:

Didn't because it was never known. Just went back to earlier post and selected hyper-link. Took me to the website I purchased it from, but now says product no longer available. Bummer. Didn't look around on that site too much; may still be there somewhere, but am doubting it. When a product doesn't sell very good, companies are reluctant to carry it.

If you're looking for brass mesh, you'll have to try a different supplier. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I found 100 mesh screen on McMaster-Carr website. Seems cheap enough and 100 mesh is probably about right compared to the original. This should work good for fuel strainer screens too.

Rick posted that the mesh should be 25 micron or less (which I assume refers to the opening size). Unless I am reading the charts wrong, 25 microns= .00098" which is much smaller than the 100 mesh. However, I don't know how much of a factor that would be in a Cub.
