  • Engine Hatch Lift Cylinders

    Does anyone know the brand & model of the hatch lift cylinders on a 25CC. I have one that leaks a little when it gets raised to the max and I would like to replace the seals. Mine have been repainted so the labels are covered.

    I had one completely blow out last year on me. sprayed fluid all over the engine room and cockpit floor. I called mack and they had gone to a different company and it would have been rather costly to switch brands so I had a farmer buddy of mine rebuild mine. Works like a charm now. The housing at the bottom cracked on mine, so he built a new part and then through bolted the caps together and upgraded to a larger screw.
    But Mack will know what you need if you give them a shout.

      If they are the same ones that I have on my 1998 28' - they were manufactured by Control Line Equipment, Inc.; 14750 Industrial Parkway, Cleveland, Ohio 44135 Tele: 216-433-7766 Fax: 216-433-7664 web site:

      The seal kits for the cylinders is SRKCLH 1-1/8-0

      That is the seal kit for a cylinder with a 1-1/8" bore.

      The contact the I had received from the factory was Dees Fluid Power; 3431 Lorna Lane, Birmingham, AL 35216 Tel: 410-679-1666 - but they actually got the cylinders from Control Line Equipment.

      The seals actually were sent by Control Line Equipment and billed to Dees.
