'87 JCB 1400B hoses etc.

Post #1 by desmato » Mon Jul 16, 2018 7:00 pm

Hey all, Todd here in Michigan. I just acquired an '87 1400B and will be needing some help in the next few months.

1st order of business, hoses.... I had to replace one of the 6 that wrap around the main swivel for the hoe and the price was staggering, at least it was for me. For instance, one hose (R16-10 5/8" x 2') was $200. I have looked up that 90* elbow connector and find it around $50 each online.
So, my questions are;
* Where are you guys getting your hoses made in the Midwest and are there any tips I should know or place that is the best for these ?
* I assume this machine uses the "BSP" type connector, correct ?
* is there a length/type breakdown anywhere of what each hose is/should be on this machine ? that way I can systematically order/replace prior to failure.
* I assume the old connectors can not be reused with a new crimp sleeve ? (so far they have all been the older o-ring style anyways)

Thanks, Todd

Hi and greetings from the UK, i would say that the majority of hoses on your 1400B will be like our 3CX sideshift machines with the exception of the ones hat run by the centre mount kingpost i am pretty sure they are 1/2" BSP, i get all of my hoses made up at my local engineering workshop i think they supply milking machines to farms so the supply hoses for all applications, i just remove the hose and they make me up a like for like hose i don't want to make you feel sick but a few weeks back i got a hose made up that was a good 5ft long and it cost me £35.00 i thought it was so reasonable i got him to make me a second one up so i have a spare.

Yup. those 6 are the ones that had the issue, at least 1 of them. I wound up having 4 of the 6 made for a grand total of $440 ! the 1/2" hoses were $90 ea and the 5/8" was $150 (he was kind enough to give me a 25% discount off the $200 price since one connector was slightly corroded)

Based on that math, I need another $290 for the last 2 that he didn't have the connectors to make, which I was glad of.

Sadly, the 1st time it touched the ground with me at the helm was to bury my pupper dogger, and that's when the hose popped.
