I have a cracked hydraulic cylinder case part #32751-34114 which cannot be repaired and I can't find a new or used one. Does anyone know of a workaround where I could use a case from another Kubota tractor that might work. OR ANY OTHER IDEA TO GET ME RUNNING AGAIN. THANKS

If you are needing a hyd cylinder to replace a failed one you might find either an equivalent…or one so-close that it will be a perfect replacement. Determing the extended and the non-extended lengths and the outer diameter of the cylinder as well as the end-fittings/clevis’s…and order a complete replacement.

I did this with on of my cylinders on another piece of equipment and the total cost was only $200. It arrived in 3 days, shipped from within the U.S. with free shipping.
I ordered from these folks. They are located in Ukraine and the cylinder was an exact replacement and high quality…and Ukraine can probably use our support right now. ;)

(Pay attention to the hose fittings….my equipment was an exact match with 3/8” BSP fittings…but you may need to purchase a cheap adaptor …or a new hose….if their cyl doesn’t come the same as your original.

He needs the entire OEM hydraulic top cover which contains the 3pt cylinder. Probably big time hard to find.

@bigtrough Could you send a couple pics of the area that's cracked? Maybe someone here could suggest something.

I don't know if that particular part from the L35 is used on other Kubota models, but you might check other L-series as a start - maybe you've done that already.
Have you called Messicks already? Sometimes they pull one of of their hat.

Also there are a couple of places that have salvage that might be helpful:

not sure how it broke just started shooting fluid out.....could have hit a stump when shredding and jarred it or could just be a weak cylinder. I will post photos if I can figure out how to do it. Thanks to all who have suggested places to call for new or salvaged parts. I've called them all. What I need is a Kubota guru who can tell me what hydraulic cylinder case from another tractor will work and what modifications will be needed.

I think its a discontinued part so dealer who just checks within Kubota pipeline will not find.
You need to find dealer who can search other supply houses.
I've heard Messicks does this extra searching.

Better make that order quickly!
Ukraine will not be around much longer.

Messick's is great for this type issue.
They really go to bat for tractor owners!

I'm wondering if a poorly adjusted/missing feedback rod could cause this?

Had a friend with an old JD2010. He said his 3PH once raised more than usual, and popped the case when it hit top. His damage wasn't as severe.

I think it has more to do with the way the hydraulics are pressure relieved. The TLB has an added check ball/valve on the head line connections. I have found comparable housings, they are very similar to the vintage L. A custom hard line setup/housing face machining will be required. Its totally doable, I dont have the rig myself, but I would fix if i had that issue. Might even change up the hydraulcs a bit if I needed to provide the appropriate protections.

I had to look up the feedback rod function. This seemed like a simple explanation in case anyone else is in the same boat:
