Re: MTD 990 Hydraulic Lift Questions
You can remove the piston or the clevis. There is an o-ring inside the hole for the shaft.
Heat may be needed to soften the Loctite on the threads. Gripping the piston and shaft without damaging is the tricky part. Hopefully the clevis end has not been welded to the shaft and will unscrew. The cylinder shaft breaks at the threaded clevis end.
