    set it on blocks on my table, then welded braces to the table to hold it. Tried jacking it but took to much effort so I started slicing and cutting. Got it jacked up about 1/2"+ over what I wanted and then started welding it back together. Checked it halfway through to make sure it was staying where I wanted. Very close was the result, I'm happy.

      back together. One issue I have is the lower cylinder pins are frozen. Spent some time heating and pushing but to no avail. I got the pins to move in the collars after drilling out the bolts. Not how it supposed to work but I"ll let the customer know and leave it up to him if I should do whatever it takes to get the pins out. Won't be fun.

        No grease fittings in the lower pins from the factory. Stupid design. Bottom eye of cylinder is 5-1/2" wide so plenty of area to seize solid with rust. As you can see this bucket doesn't get a lot of use so I am going to recommend that they use it as is. Maybe the will loosen up with use, maybe not. I tried for two hours to get the pins to move and only got them free in the collars. Not sure you can get them out without cutting something apart.

          Nice and straight. Good work. I haven't had much heavy iron in the shop in a while. Been building fuel pump mounts for portable tanks and containment's. Is easy work, no specs (really) so I can use whatever scrap I have laying around. Usually turn them out in a day or so, including my most hated part....painting.

          Really good work getting that thing straight again for sure. I'm supposed to be getting a front end loader bucket dropped off that has a wow in it like that. It's much lighter duty than what you have there, but I'm going to steal your repair method. So thanks!

            Thanks Ryan. I post stuff like this to show my methods and try to pass along some knowledge as I get closer to not doing this full time anymore. When back bending before re-welding stuff like this it is a guessing game that comes from experience. I've had my share of to much and to little over the years and still second guess myself every time I do it. Patience is key and checking along the way so you can make adjustments as needed.

                Customer decided to have me fix the pins. Spent another hour heating and hammering on one pin to know avail. Sliced the pins in between the ears and the eyes to be able to get the cylinders out and into the 30 ton press. Maxed it out without moving so I started heating also. Finally they would move and fought me the whole way out. Cleaned out the cylinder eyes which had lots of rust scale and made new pins. I also added grease fittings to the cylinders. Took pretty much a day start to finish.

                  Good job on getting that blade straight.........

                  On the pins we use to set up a Jerry rigged porta-press........which in essence was just a 20 or 30 ton hydraulic jack enclosed in a temporary welded 3/4"x 4" FB fixture and then welded to the side of the blade bucket.........on the vertical no sleeve is necessary on the base of the jack.....horizontal......tack a sleeve or piece of tube on to locate your pushing pins...........add pressure and heat and stand back.........the fixture was then cut off and a little grinding and some yellow paint finished it......the fixture after many years of adds and modifications looked as if it was some form of yard art.......but did the job just the same.........and used wrist pins from a Cummins or Cat worked well for the push!..............and short of all that a good grease gun also works wonders!

                    Came out nice .Did you test drill the pin to see how hard it was

                      I did drill through one pin to try and help loosen it. It drilled fine. I used 1045 carbon steel for the new pins and I used a grinder to put some grease grooves in them since they do not rotate much.
