    For limits Just use the same source that you power the unit with. But if you are keeping full Isolation using a separate source then best pulling from this and powering the unit for it's own personal source.

    Personally I just pull from one source and never had any issues.

    I thought it was M8 fine simply as the standard M8 bolt I have didnt thread, it started and then stopped. Could have been dirt but felt like a different thread.

    In terms of the mounting, yes, its around 22mm. The parker units I was looking at seem to be larger, might need to look at another option. RS Components has a number of actuators, not cheap, but have stock and variety.

    RS are expensive for pneumatics, but they're mostly supplying repairers who will pay extra to get a machine back up and running quickly. Parker are also expensive if you're paying full price, but machine builders get quite big discounts, which is why they're so popular.
    .
    Try the Norgren catalogue to see if you can match the cylinders - http://www.norgren.com/uk/info/12/actuators
    Once you have a part number, try googling it to see who can supply it. I've not used pneumatic actuators for a long time, but the hardest part was always identifying what you need.
    .
    There is a possibility the threads could be imperial, so could be worth investing in a couple sets of imperial and metric thread pitch gauges, as pneumatics/hydraulics still use quite a bit of imperial.

    Ive looked at 3 sets of suppliers now including Norgren. For a 25mm bore, they all use M10 for the rod. I could drill / tap if needed, not ideal but if If Im not going to get the original part, Ill need to make a plan.

    Actually, thinking about it last night, when I checked, I was in a rush. I grabbed a bolt which I thought was M8 but I think its M10. Ill measure tonight to be sure. Ive found what I believe to be the same Joucomatic part as what is on the up / down, its also 10mm. The mounting nut is 22mm which is correct.

    Thanks, have emailed them. A bit disappointed in many of the local companies. They clearly dont need my business. Have asked a few for assistance with little response. Hopefully these guys can help.

    OK, the thread is M10 fine for the actuators. M10 x 1.25, all the specs are the same.

    this is weird, the last time i changed one of these i had no problem getting an exact replacement and as low as 12. It was a couple of years ago but there were loads about.

    When I replaced a pneumatic lift ram on my SCM I contacted a company in Derby - SGS - tel no. 01332 576850. I ordered a ram at 4pm on a Friday and was told I could collect at 8 am the next morning. I thought that was fantastic service and the cost was less than 50% of the SCM part, I simply had to tell them the required cylinder dimensions, stroke, force rating and end connection details. I don't know if this helps, but it is probably worth a try. G.
