    MX5100 HST will not travel

    How many hours? Did you drive it around before purchasing? Did you get it from a dealer?

    When needing hdraulic hoses I perfer to have a qualified shop make them up to ensure proper fit. Check the condition of the other hoses and make the trip worthwhile. The last thing I want is to have hose shipped in and have it be wrong i.e., fittings, length.

    Before trying any type of extraction tools, I'd suggest blowing out the crevice and soaking with a good penetrant, install the other glow plugs and warm the engine up. As always do as you feel is best, when installing I prefer applying anti-seize.
