Bobcat 743B I want to replace aux hyd connectors.

Hey guys I am new to all of this. I have got a combo bucket and the connectors are not capable with what is on the 743B. I guess are they are the new quick connect which to me looks to have a "flatface". Just figured it would be better to put new connectors on the Bobcat.

What do I need to do this and where would be a good place to get the new connectors.

Thank You

Sam

Turn them off and replace with the flat face, the threads should be the same (JIC) but you might need adapters.

Remove the old coupler and take it to napa, the dealership, or a hydraulic shop and they should be able to fix you up. Those flat faced couplers have become pretty standard.

Thank You Gator. Somebody told me they are called FIRG couplers. And the ones on the 743 are called Poppet. Going to remove couplers off of machine and go to NAPA we have a GOOD one in town. Plus the ones on the machine have been painted over.

Thanks
Sam
