Every time I curl the bucket in, the cylinders hit the loader frame. On the frame there are 2 holes, one above and one below the spot where it hits. Is there some kind of bumper or plastic stop that would mount there? My dealers says no. ?

B737 - or anyone else with a B2601 - curl your bucket all the way back. Seems that shouldn’t be making contact…. Thinking there’s a stop not right.

Hodag - what model loader do you have on your tractor?

no there is plenty of clearance. Something isnt assembled right, or is bent on loader. OP
attach more pictures of loader if possible

Yeah - - - thanks for that. Something isn't right.....

More photos would be handy from OP.

Looking at B737's photo, looks like the bottom of curl cylinder barrel is hitting.

That could also damage the seal on the cylinder, making a larger problem beyond a mark in the paint.

Not sure if this would be a reason but if you put pressure on the leading edge of the bucket with the bucket being all the way curled back , would it cause the cylinder to hit the frame because of that. If thats the case then the stops arent placed right keeping the bucket from flopping to far back. ?? Then again is that mark from the pin area or the cylinder itself.??

These are some pics. The part of the cylinder that hits is the pin end. Sorry. I should have specified

How about pics with it curled back. This way we can see if the bucket linkage/ frame is making contact with the stops on the loader frame. If the stops aren't doing what there meant to do then I can see were the pin area of the cylinder is acting as the curl back stop. Hopefully that makes sense.

Look at the part number on the left side tag of your quick attach. Kubota wholegoods says it should be B2366, when I blow up your pic of it, it doesn't look like B2366. Yours also looks different than B737's picture of his.

well you can deffinatly see that your quick attach frame does not make contact with the curl back stop. Not sure if it's the wrong quick attach frame or what. Of course a piece of metal could be welded on either the frame or the stop if your inclinded to do that.

wow you have a good eye for detail, I didnt notice that until I took another look. you can see how his SSQA adapter is straight where the other one is curved.

Isn't that the dump stop to keep from pulling the rods out of the cylinder?

Sorry. I don’t know all these abbreviations
From what I find on line, the B1673 Skid Steer Quick Attach (SSQA) is for a LA1055 loader, not yours. I would ask B737 if he would be so kind as to check his SSQA model number (he has same tractor and loader as you) to verify it is a B2366. If his is you may have found your reason for hitting the arms.

I just checked. It is indeed at B1673, why the heck does his B1673 look different than mine? he lacks the curve. Even the orientation of the fasteners look different too.
