Vulcan Onshore Tip #20: Extractor Bumper Conversion

Until recent years Vulcan Pile Extractors utilized a Steel Spring and Spring Guide in the Cylinder head as shown below:


To convert older Extractors to the new configuration which replaces the Spring and Spring Guide with a Rubber Bumper the procedure is as follows:


  1. Drill through at “A” 1 1/2″ diameter.
  2. Remove Spring Guide and discard.
  3. Tap hole for 1 1/4″ NPT.
  4. Insert countersunk Pipe Plug 1 1/4″ size.
  5. Install Bumper as shown.
