Is there anywhere buy specialist tools. My hydraulic take off on my db25 has struck again by springing a leak. I suspect it is simply not in tight enough. Due to where it sits I think it is impossible to get a spanner to it with enough purchase to tighten it properly. It needs some sort of modified box spanner. I have searched the internet and all the usual places and spoken to some of them but no one has anything... any suggestions? I guess if not I'll have to try and make one...

I usually end up making custom wrenches from sockets or spanners that are cut up, heated and bent and or welded as needed. Usually I can make or modify something quicker than buying. My 900 is mostly whitworth bolts but the hydraulic banjo bolt was metric.

If you are talking about the banjo bolt on the ram cylinder it should not be metric spanner size.

My 900 livedrive has a 18 mm banjo bolt for the ram cylinder, I made an adapter for it to fit a pressure gauge. I have a poor copy of the parts manual that also says 18 mm banjo bolt part 11765, The other banjo bolt is 3/4 bsp. A strange mix for sure. I will attempt to attach a screen shot.

Hi inpact sockets that are 6 sided are good give a little more reach and lessen the risk of rounding the head of the fitting off, metric or imperial use one that is a good fit.

A large adjustable spanner can be used to tighten the valve body the gland nut.
